What on Earth is God Doing?
A Survey of Bible Theology
Instructor: David Lambertson
This study will survey the Bible’s theological structure by moving through Scripture from Genesis to Revelation. This panorama will be viewed through the Christological lens of Revelation chapter five, where Jesus is viewed as the Ruling Lion and Redemptive Lamb of God. Five major sections of Scripture will be examined to see what each contributes to our understanding of God’s kingdom and redemptive programs. The story of the Bible is His story of reestablishing His kingdom authority and saving a people to populate His kingdom.
