a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,

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 November 12, 2017 was part 35 of "The U, V and W of Right Division". Wayne returned from a Truth for Today Bible Conference in Phoenix, Arizona and recaped his two sessions he taught entitled - Election “to be…” OR “not to be…”? You may review the two lessons from the Carolina Bible Group AZ Conference site. Once the review was over, Wayne continued with the lesson and continued to look at how God used hardening to accomplish his purpose. The emphasis is on how God hardened people after they make the free will decision to reject what His message. In the Gospels, He used a hardened Israel to have them crucify His son and during the Acts period to reveal a new calling after Acts 28. The scripture reading was from Exodus 4:18-23 KJV
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.
