The video lectures in this course focus on the unfolding of the history of redemption as revealed in the Old and New Testaments. The Triune God prepared the redemption of His people before the foundation of the world and gradually revealed Himself and His plan of salvation in the covenant of grace. Consequently, the whole Bible reveals the Lord Jesus Christ, beginning in the first pages of Genesis and leading to the full light of the New Testament exposition of His person and work. The development of the covenant of grace expands throughout the Old Testament and culminates in the incarnation of Christ, God’s eternal Son. His death, burial, resurrection, ascension and sending of the Holy Spirit secure the spread of His redemption throughout the world to the present day. Redemptive history concludes on the Last Day, when the King of kings and Lord of lords will gather His church to Himself in everlasting glory, to reign with Him forever. The purpose of this course is to equip God’s people with a deeper understanding of the Bible and with a fuller knowledge of God as He reveals Himself in Christ. So, if you wish to know God better, and if you want a better grasp of the message of the Scriptures, these lectures aim to benefit you.
Definition of Biblical Theology:
The discipline of Biblical Theology studies the progressive nature of biblical revelation. It emphasizes the development of God’s revelation throughout the consecutive periods of biblical history, as recorded in the inspired Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. God did not provide the final product of His revelation all at once. Later portions of the Bible build upon and expand the concepts, vocabulary, doctrines, images and events of earlier periods. Biblical theology studies the revelation of God in Christ chronologically, analyzing the theology of each stage of history and how God weaves those strands together throughout the other portions of redemptive history. Systematic theology, by way of contrast, considers the final, completed product of biblical revelation and organizes individual doctrines into logical categories drawn from the material in the Bible as a whole. Biblical theology and systematic theology serve and support each other. Both are indispensable to knowing the Bible and understanding sound theology.
