"Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth."
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV
Covenant theology is a conceptual overview and interpretive framework for understanding the overall flow of the Bible. It uses the theological concept of a covenant;as an organizing principle for Christian theology. The standard form of covenant theology views the history of God's dealings with mankind, from Creation to Fall to Redemption to Consummation, under the framework of three overarching theological covenants: of redemption, works, and grace.
The lesson on October 15, 2017 was part 32 of "The U, V and W of Right Division". Wayne spent most of the lesson providing a recap of the Calvinism belief in Covenant Theology and how it is totally exposed through Right Division. We looked at Jeremiah 18:1-10 with the example given that we are the clay, God is the potter but backed up to chapter 17 verse 23 to get the context in that this pertains to Israel and it showed they hardened their hearts, not God. God then has the right to mold Israel into a new body that will perform his purpose. The scripture reading was from Jeremiah 18:1-1
This study is a follow up to the ABC's of Right Division. The lessons in this study will take a deeper look into the basis or right division and why it is important to understand how it helps you understand scripture. It will compare other beliefs like Preterism, and those based in covenant theology and look at some critiques of what opponents of right division object to this fundamental methodology of handling scripture accurately.
