This course surveys the whole range of Christian doctrine as set forth in the Bible, grappled with and fought over in history, and debated in our day. The aim throughout is to give resources for deciding at each point what theological assertions and "moves" in discussion express a truly biblical faith. The course is a natural follow-up to Biblical Theology, inasmuch as Systematic Theology represents a re-thinking of biblical material so as to exhibit it as wisdom answering the folly of our time. Lectures include:

  • Introducing the World of Systematic Theology
  • History of Doctrine 1
  • History of Doctrine 2
  • Types of Theology
  • Christianity and Philosophy
  • Language, History, and Knowledge of God
  • Revelation and the Bible 1
  • Revelation and the Bible 2/Inspiration of Scripture
  • Scripture, Tradition, and Biblical Authority
  • Justification of Faith/Character of God
  • Creation
  • God's Providence
  • Evil and the Tri-Unity of God
  • Doctrine of the Trinity
  • Christology/Ministry of the Holy Spirit
  • The Nature and Destiny of Man
  • Sin
  • Reconciliation
  • Grace, Faith, Justification, and Adoption
  • Elements in Salvation 1/2/3
  • The Church in the Bible/Church in Christian Thought
  • Church: It's Ministry
  • The Gospel Sacraments
  • The Return of Christ (Parousia)
