See attached for all of the docs needed for class. Use at will . . .hey, if you’re not in the class – don’t you wish you were?
See Slidepacks for Epistemology here:
Attached is a slidepack on Theodicy for Senior Apologetics. The heart of the discussion is near the end between the videos from Zacharias and Piper. The answer to the problem of God and evil/suffering: The Cross.
Attached are the slides for Prolegomenon and an Intro to Hermeneutics for the SysTheo classes at CCS. If you have never thought deeply about hermeneutics (The Science and Art of Biblical Interpretation), then check out the slides. They are based on Howard Hendricks’ book, Living by the Book. For a Christian, not having a good foundation in Hermeneutics is like a Doctor not having a good foundation in Anatomy and Physiology. Think about it . . .
Had a great talk with a brother over hermeneutics this morning and we talked about everything from the need to read, read, read the Bible to interpret properly, to senses plenoir, to Christ in the Old Testament, to Riceour’s thesis that Life is a Text. Good morning.
As we discussed, we talked about our utter dependence on the Scriptural content, because it is unique in a Holy-Spirit-Authored existence. God’s intent was sure before there was history, before people, before us, before me. So, in His self-revelation, there are truths that make time look useless and it (the Bible) is as living and fresh today as it has always been. This does not relieve the difficulty of handling it well, in it’s proper context(s), but does provide assurance of veracity as well as guidance in meaning.
God is our maker, our holder, our revelation, our revealer, our teacher, life . . . our author.
