Confusion and Excitement

I am confused about how to make this blog stuff work and I'm excited because I posted my application to the RTC yesterday. (Please be patient while I tweak the page. Also, let me know if my Latin grammar is wrong and tell me what it should say.)

I sent it express so they should be in possession of it and processing it.

Now that the initial paperwork is complete I must patiently await approval/acceptance and the chance to choose my subjects.

The list should look something like this:

Subject No.Subject NameWhen Taught
Old Testament
OT201Formative OT TraditionsO1
OT202From Israel to JudeaO2
OT205Genesis, Deuteuronomy, SamuelO1
OT206Pre-exilic ProphetsE2
New Testament

NT202Early NT ChurchE2
NT205Luke, JohnE1
NT206Romans/I CorinthiansO2
Th310Doctrine of God, ChristE1

PC249Supervised Exp. Based Learning (SEBL)AllBoth
RDP21Principles of PreachingE2
Developmental Ministries
DM210Foundations for Youth MinistryO1
DM241Youth Ministry Field EducationO2
LA203a/bBiblical Hebrew (two semesters)EBoth
LA204a/bNew Testament Greek (two semesters)OBoth

Then I'll have to decide which direction to take with the studies. I am definitely doing  Greek and Hebrew but as for the other subjects I'm not sure. I like Church History so I'll hopefully do both. I think I'd like History of Mission, Apologetics, OT, NT and Theology subjects. I'm undecided on Ethics and Contemporary Problems.

Thing is I'll only be doing the Diploma subjects for semester one...unless I fail miserably then I'll do the Diploma till the end of the year. After semester one I hope to be doing well enough to change to the Degree course.
