Covenant Theology

Covenant Theology 

Dr. Duncan Rankin

This course will help you read your Bible better! It is a study of Covenant Theology from exegetical, theological and historical perspectives. Covenant theology is the Bible’s way of explaining and deepening our understanding of (1) the atonement; (2) our assurance; (3) the sacraments; (4) the continuity of redemptive history; and (5) dynamic of God’s sovereignty and Christian responsibility/piety. The doctrine of the covenants is thus important for both Reformed systematic and biblical theology (the study of special revelation from the standpoint of redemptive history).

The course will survey the successive biblical covenants from a redemptive historical perspective as well as examine the bi-covenantal structure of creation and redemption. Consideration will be given to issues such as the relation of the Old and New Testaments, the significance of the covenants for the doctrine of the atonement, for understanding sacramental theology, the implications of Covenant Theology for Reformed hermeneutics and more. Emphasis will be placed on the role of the Biblical doctrine of the covenants for preaching, pastoral ministry, and the Christian life.

14 weeks of lectures. 3 credit hours.

Ugaritic

This course serves as an introduction to the basic foundational elements of Ugaritic. As originally recorded, the format of the class was a communal learning experience, led by a moderator, where students held one another accountable to continue studying throughout the class. Done as an online/individual study course, the structure is, naturally, a bit different than as originally designed.

The course content will be delivered via a video lecture and then by also watching the recorded class discussions. Links to the videos will be provided by the instructor. No prior knowledge of ancient Semitic languages is necessary for this class.

Course Syllabus available HERE.

After successfully enrolling and paying the course registration fee, links to the class recordings and study outlines will be emailed to you.
