This course was very insightful. The breakdown of the different worldview maps of Barbaric, Hellenistic, and Hebraic was helpful in understanding the world we live in and people’s perspectives. Each person acts out their life based on core truths and stories they believe about reality. The Hebraic leader is one who understands history and people through the lens of Scripture. First and foremost people are created in the image of God, but also have been given the freedom to live their lives by a God who loves them. Therefore, the Hebraic leader is one who is familiar with human nature and the complicity of evil but also has the ability to engage in heroic acts. The highlight of the course for me was that Christianity is a religion in paradox the twoness of where we find ourselves. This aids any leader who can live and navigate decision-making in that influx of moving parts throughout time. Lastly, this course showed that the Hebraic leader is one who knows where they are going, and to whom they serve. To share in the promotion and promise of the Kingdom of God is the final destination.
