Old Testament Survey
This course is 2 credit hour.
This is a study of the OT dealing with its content, message, form and background. The survey will introduce the student to the biblical-theological approach to Scripture, showing how the books of the OT point us to God’s Covenant of Grace in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Themes include sin, grace, salvation, covenant, obedience, disobedience and the people of God.
Doctrine of Scripture
This course is 1 credit hour.
The Doctrine of Scripture forms the first part of a two-part course. Major topics to be covered are: the divisions of Scripture, its revelation, inspiration and illumination; understanding Jesus’ view of the Bible as well as its view of itself, canonicity, alleged “errors” in the Bible; and modern translations. The infallibility and inerrancy of all Scripture will be greatly emphasized. The seminary’s position is summed up by the description “biblical inerrancy”. Our objective is to teach from the viewpoint of orthodox Protestantism concerning the Word of God, demonstrating its divine origin, internal harmony and its controlling role in the faith, life and vocation of Christians.
