Doctrine of God and the Work of Christ (TH402i/602i)

Pre-requisite: 8cp of foundational NT/OT and 4cp of CH/TH

2019 January Intensive Unit 2

Theology affects all of life. It is intensely practical. It answers the meaning of life questions such as, “Who am I? What is my purpose? How can I live well?” by stepping back to see the centrality of God himself to our lives and the universe. As Augustine said, “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.”

This unit is an introduction to the study of God and to some of the most important biblical topics, such as: the trustworthiness of Scripture; God’s nature and attributes; the Trinity;  Jesus the man who is God, and all that he accomplished for us; the significance of Jesus’ resurrection and ascension; the Bible’s many ways of assuring us of our salvation. This unit is intended to not only sharpen and clarify your thinking about God, but also to love and admire him more deeply for who he is.
