The Bible and Theology
1 - What is the Bible?
What is the Bible, who authored it, and how should we approach it? The Bible presents itself as the Word of God, who is incapable of lying, in which He lays out the revelation of the history of His universe, from the Creation in the book of Genesis all the way to the future Consummation in the book of Revelation. Register and Enrol.
2 - Approaching the Bible
In this second talk on the Bible and Theology, we learn basic yet critical principles of how to approach the Bible. We ask ourselves: 'What are my basic presuppositions? What am I taking for granted, and what am I questioning? Is the Bible the foundation for all my thinking?'
3 - Observe, Interpret, Apply
In this third talk on the Bible and Theology, we are introduced to the 3 steps of Bible reading: observation, interpretation, and application. We spend most of our time on the two most basic principles of interpretation: 1) that it's not how, but WHO interprets, and 2) that there's only ONE correct interpretation.
4 - Interpretive Principles and Fallacies
In this fourth talk on the Bible and theology, we dwell further on the basic principles of interpretation, as well as looking at examples of how NOT to interpret the Bible.
