Bible Survey 2 – Old Testament 

Instructor:  Pastor Paul Michael Raymond 
E-mail: pastor@HisGlory.us
Phone: 434-352-2667

Course Description

Building on the foundation of the preceding Bible survey course, this class concentrates on the Old Testament story of God’s choosing Israel as a nation of priests to draw all men and nations unto himself.  Israel’s repeated failure results in the divorce decree of 70 a. d. and God taking a new bride, the church made up of both Jew and Gentile.  Dr. Peter Leithart’s “A House For My Name"  provides the literary framework crucial to understanding the many details of the Old Testament narrative.  The text assists the student in gaining an appreciation and love for the "sweep and beauty" of the Old Testament Scriptures. A further benefit in this course is the emphasis on God’s law and the continuity of God's revelation to man in both testaments.

From the birth of the Christ, His life, His death, His resurrection and ascension to His present reign at the right hand of the Father and finally, to the defeat of all Christ's enemies at the resurrection, this course endeavors to encourage the student in the "Faith, once delivered to the saints."

Bible Doctrine 2 - WCF 

Instructor:  Pastor Paul Michael Raymond

Course Description

The Westminster Assembly was convened by the British Parliament in 1643 to produce the Longer and Shorter Catechisms. To quote the Encyclopedia Americana, the Westminster Confession of Faith is "the most widely influential Protestant theological formula in the English-speaking world."

One of the most pressing concerns of the Reformers was that the articles of the "Protestant Faith" should be passed on to the children of believers and new converts.  This took the form of short doctrinal summaries such as the Westminster Confession of Faith. Using the Bible and a commentary on the Westminster Shorter Catechism as the main text, students will learn the classical outline of systematics in theology. A few of the main headings are: the Doctrine of God, the Doctrine of the Person and Work of Christ, and the Doctrine of the Application of the Work of Redemption.  “The Decree of God In Prophetic Interpretation” by D.O. “Oliver” Woods serves as an online supplement to the Reformers sketchy development of Bible prophecy.
