The Bible Is Sort of Like the Universe If you look at the universe, you see everything existing in an orderly fashion and following established natural laws. You won’t find the sun rising one day in the east and another day in the west. The moon passes through established cycles, and gravity always exerts a pulling force. You will never perform a vertical leap without coming down again. You see, God the Creator does everything in an orderly way. He is infinitely well organized. So we shouldn’t be surprised to learn that His written Word, the Bible, is well organized. The Bible contains two parts: the Old Testament and the New Testament, so named because they involve two great covenants (testaments). These are the Mosaic Covenant given at Mount Sinai (Exodus 24:8) and the New Covenant introduced by Jesus at the Last Supper (Matthew26:28). by Jesus at the Last Supper (Matthew26:28).

This is the first of 50 studies on Basic Christian Doctrine. Each study will include 10 summary statements, explanations of the terms and topics covered, and the main Scripture verses to study. The Bible is our textbook, and it places a high value on doctrine. For example, God often says, “I want you to know” (I Cor. 11:3; Col. 2:1). God gave us the Bible so that we might know certain important things (I John 5:13). Sadly, too many Christians know very little about the Bible and Christian doctrine. They often know more about sports than about God’s Word. This series will study the basics for beginners, but also give teaching for those who are more advanced. It will cover Christian doctrine from the Bible, not the theories of philosophy, psychology, opinions, or false religions.

History has two sides, a divine, and a human. On the part of God, it is his revelation in the order of time (as the creation is his revelation in the order of space), and the successive unfolding of a plan of infinite wisdom, justice, and mercy, looking to his glory and the eternal happiness of mankind. On the part of man, history is the biography of the human race and the gradual development, both normal and abnormal, of all its physical, intellectual, and moral forces to the 7 History of the Christian Church, Volume I: Apostolic Christianity. Philip Schaff A.D. 1-100. final consummation at the general judgment, with its eternal rewards and punishments. The idea of universal history presupposes the Christian idea of the unity of God, and the unity and common destiny of men, and was unknown to ancient Greece and Rome. A view of history that overlooks or undervalues the divine factor starts from deism and consistently runs into atheism; while the opposite view, which overlooks the free agency of man and his moral responsibility and guilt, is essentially fatalistic and pantheistic.

We live in an age of discovery and research, similar to that which preceded the Reformation. The beginnings of Christianity are now absorbing the attention of scholars. During the present generation early church history has been vastly enriched by new sources of information, and almost revolutionized by independent criticism.

Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. (GR, diakonion; services, ministries, and offices.) 

And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. (GR, energema; workings or operations.) 

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. (GR, phanerosis; making visible the manifestations.)


The Nine Gifts of the Spirit:

  • Word of Wisdom
  • Word of Knowledge
  • Faith 
  • Gifts of Healing 
  • Working of Miracles 
  • Prophecy
  • Discerning of Spirits
  • Diverse Kinds of Tongues
  • Interpretation of Tongues

A New Testament survey course is one which reviews the content, unity, and progression of the New Testament. Its purpose is to explore God’s Word on a brief book-by-book basis to see how each fits into the overall plan of the New Testament.

The fifth book of the New Testament has been known from ancient times as The Acts of the Apostles; but this title cannot be found in the book itself. One of the earliest manuscripts, the Codex Sinaiticus, gives as the title the simple word Acts, with no mention of the apostles. There is a reason for this. Acts was intended to be more than a brief history of the service rendered by the twelve disciples, much more than the principal events in the lifework of its four leading characters, Peter, James, John, and Paul.

The purpose of this work is to give a living picture of St. Paul himself, and of the circumstances by which he was surrounded.

This document consists of a number of overlapping studies and resources (of uneven quality) that pertain to the composition, transmission, and translation of the Scriptures, with a particular focus on the canonical development of the Old Testament and New Testament.

The issue that we are going to deal with is explaining our faith to others. Why do we believe what we believe? How do we deal with the many questions about Jesus, God, the Christian faith, and is relevance for our daily life? What answers can we give to those who doubt, those in difficult situations, those who don’t want to believe us at all? Are our answers convincing, or do we realize that we don’t really know ourselves how to deal with certain issues? Are we shocked when people question the very foundation of or faith – or can we reach out to them and give them answers that help them on their way to Christ? Do we just know “the basics” or can we explain why we view certain things as right or wrong? Can we participate when people discuss issues that currently move the world or do we realize that we don’t know how to voice our opinion without sounding ridiculous – even to ourselves?

Four Studies on the Seven Annual Feasts Appointed by the Lord for the Israelites

Today we’re going to start a new series – something quite different from what we have done before. The issue that we are going to deal with is explaining our faith to others. Why do we believe what we believe? How do we deal with the many questions about Jesus, God, the Christian faith, and is relevance for our daily life? What answers can we give to those who doubt, those in difficult situations, those who don’t want to believe us at all? Are our answers convincing, or do we realize that we don’t really know ourselves how to deal with certain issues? Are we shocked when people question the very foundation of or faith – or can we reach out to them and give them answers that help them on their way to Christ? Do we just know “the basics” or can we explain why we view certain things as right or wrong? Can we participate when people discuss issues that currently move the world or do we realize that we don’t know how to voice our opinion without sounding ridiculous – even to ourselves?

Study on the Old Testaments Minor Prophets

Jackie Feldman is an associate professor in sociology and anthropology at the Ben Gurion University of the Negev. He has researched pilgrimage and tourism and the interface between them, Christian pilgrimage to the Holy Land, pilgrimage to the Second Temple, and Jewish-Israeli youth voyages to Poland. 

Study of the Old Testament Prophets

This paper, “Jesus’ Words to Seven Churches of Roman Asia”, was prepared to discover and examine that part of John’s vision recorded in Revelation that pertains to Jesus and His instructions to the seven angels of the seven churches in Roman Asia. It is intended to share with others what I learned while researching Jesus’ messages to the seven churches to discover what the messages meant then, and what they mean for us today

The Doctrine of Salvation

The Holy Spirit’s presence and work can be found all throughout redemptive history. However, He is sometimes the forgotten person of the Trinity. In this course, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson traces the work of the Spirit of God throughout the pages of Scripture. From creation to the ministry of Jesus Christ, to the Spirit’s indwelling the hearts of God’s people today, Dr. Ferguson sheds light on the vital role played by the third person of the Trinity. The more we know about the Holy Spirit, the better we can enjoy our fellowship with Him and understand His power at work within us and in the church today.

Let me open the door, switch on the light and quickly walk you through this book and, as we go, make some explanations so you get an overview of what it contains. THE FLOOR PLAN A brief look at the Contents page helps get this book into perspective. This overview gives some idea of my core commitments in writing this book. I have sought to achieve the following: • To show that mentoring is not an optional extra, if followers of Christ are to mature and fulfil God’s purpose for them. • To encourage every follower of Christ to take an interest in another’s personal and spiritual growth (to ‘watch over one another in love’). Mentoring others is not reserved for the giants of the faith! • To emphasise that the foundation for effective Christian mentoring is a vital, growing relationship with Jesus Christ. • To give a clear understanding of the various dimensions of mentoring and what is involved. • To explain that mentoring can be done with varying degrees of intensity from a close friendship to a professional relationship, occasional wise words of encouragement and guidance to wellstructured, regular meetings. • To lay a sound biblical and theological basis for mentoring. • To provide some practical guidelines for both mentors and mentorees. INTRODUCTION 2 • To emphasise that mentoring is essentially experience-based learning to which reflection is central. • To help especially leaders see the broad possibilities for mentoring. To provide case studies of some options and enable them to develop mentoring networks in their churches or organisations. • To present Jesus Christ as our prime mentoring model. WHO THIS BOOK IS FOR I have written this book for a broad cross-section of readers, including: • Potential mentors/mentorees, who want to know how to go about it and how to begin. • Mentors who want to improve their performance by honing their skills and discovering new ideas. • Team leaders who want to build their teams through mentoring. • Supervisors in bible and theological college supervised field education programs, who want to maximise their mentoring. • Church and para-church leaders who want to implement their own mentoring networks. • Trainers who want a sound educational resource to equip mentors. • Friends who want their friendships to be more effective in helping each other grow personally and spiritually. WHAT THIS BOOK CAN DO FOR YOU It will: • help you catch a vision of mentoring • encourage you to begin • provide practical know-how • help you experience the potential of reflection for learning from the experiences through which God has taken you • enable you to find a mentor or a mentoree • equip you to build effective teams • open your eyes to how churches and Christian organisations can be transformed through organised mentoring. INTRODUCTION 3 HOW THE STUDY/TRAINING DIMENSION WORKS THE STUDY GUIDES: Most sections of this book have study guides. • The personal reflection. This segment is central to facilitating self-understanding and insight. The outcome for a mentored person is not only to become a Christ-centred disciple, but a reflective Christ-centred disciple. It can be used on your own to help make more of your reading of the text. If you are using it with others, you will need to make notes. • Group work can be done with one other person or a small group of ideally six or eight people. Your reading of the text and personal reflection provides the basis of the group work. There will be little, if any, lecturing. If other groups are involved, there will be times for groups to share their findings with each other

There are three primary purposes of mentor training. The first is for us to better understand the purpose and role of mentoring, both as a biblical concept and as a resource tool for elders and churches. The next purpose is to learn about specific mentoring skills and understand issues of confidentiality, boundaries, and sources of support. Finally, we will learn what a mentor does in order to gain the confidence needed to undertake this role

There is a great war being waged in the world today. It is not a conflict between nations, tribes, or government leaders. It is not a rebellion or coup. It is an important invisible battle taking place in the spirit world. The Bible states that God's people are destroyed because of a lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). One of the main areas in which believers are being defeated due to a lack of knowledge is spiritual warfare.

Innumerable works have been written, countless sermons have been preached, and myriads of tracts have been circulated on the subject of antichrist. However, the one outstanding feature that attracts one’s attention and must be very perplexing to the average individual is the confusion that exists, which characterizes all such efforts. Generally speaking, every scholar has a different doctrine, and every teacher a different understanding of who the antichrist is or will be. And hence, as all doctrines cannot be correct, all therefore must be wrong, with the exception of one.

We have pointed out in this series that Aaron and his sons represent Christ and His body, the great High Priest, and the members of the Royal Priesthood. Those elect saints of God who have received the call to sonship are in the process of being prepared and formed into a kingdom of priests. They are spiritual priests, they worship in a spiritual temple, they stand at a spiritual altar, they offer up spiritual sacrifices, they are clad in spiritual vestments, and they minister in a spiritual ministry. "Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ" (I Pet. 2:5). "By Him, therefore, let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name. But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased" (Heb. 13:15-16).

In the Bible, there are a great number of words, phrases, and expressions that are especially significant in the creative and redemptive plan of God.

There are many other examples of such words and phrases, but one we want to consider in this message is the proclamation of the Lord to His people in Ex. 19:5-6: "And ye shall be unto Me A KINGDOM OF PRIESTS." The full text reads, "Now, therefore, if ye will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people: for all the earth is Mine: and ye shall be unto Me A KINGDOM OF PRIESTS, and a holy nation."

The subject of religion has as many beliefs, feelings, and perceptions around it as there are people on the planet.  In a way, everyone has their own religion, even if they subscribe to a religion that many others do.  This is because everyone has their own interpretations of the religion they subscribe to.  If you were to ask followers of any given religion what their beliefs are, or what parts of the religion they agree or disagree with, they would all say something a little different from each other.  Many people adopt the things they like in a particular religion and ignore the things they donʹt believe in, even if this is done on an unconscious level.  

Systematic Theology

  • the Patristic period
  • the Middle Ages
  • Renaissance, Reformation & post-Reformation period
  • the Modern period
Each section addresses the key ideas, processes, and people.

The final step in your doctorate program is to write a thesis on the topic of your choice, with the approval of 2 boards of directors of the College.
