Biblical Covenantalism is an approach to the whole Bible which seeks to trace out the Program of God (‘the Creation Project’), through His own commitments in the Covenants of Scripture. This lecture and the next set out where “Biblical Covenantalism” takes what is good in Traditional Dispensationalism and expands its applicability by centering on the explicit biblical covenants as opposed to the problematical dispensations.
This lecture and the previous one set out how “Biblical Covenantalism“ takes what is good in Traditional Dispensationalism and expands its applicability by centering on the explicit biblical covenants as opposed to the problematical dispensations.
The first lecture outlines the teleology (purpose) and eschatology (fulfillment) which is built into the Creation at its inception, and which drives the Bible Story to its consummation. The second lecture looks at Zechariah 3:9ff. as an example of what that culmination might be expected to look like.
Several very key theological and hermeneutical truths are simply yet profoundly present in the opening chapter of the Bible.
These lessons examine our original purpose under God’s guidance, the calamity of disobedience, and its consequences.
These lectures stress how crucial Biblical Covenants (as opposed to theologically contrived covenants) are for the interpretation of the whole Bible.
These lectures inquire whether the Promise – Fulfillment scheme and the belief that the NT is required to interpret the OT makes sense.
This lecture highlights the subtle but crucial differences between a covenant and a promise, and how this can affect the way we read the Bible. Also coming under scrutiny is the popular “promise – fulfillment” scheme.
The covenant that God made with Abraham affects, in one way or another, the way God will deal with the peoples of the world (Israel and the Nations). Failure to get this covenant right will result in failure to get God’s “Creation Project” right.
