Bibliology – Biblical Introduction

Bibliology - Biblical Introduction.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Bibliology – Biblical Introduction.. Based on a revealed text known as the Bible, Christianity is a revealed religion. Because of this, there cannot be any Holy Scripture (The Bible) without revelation, which makes it impossible for there to be any kind of religion, including Christianity.

This is due to the fact that man cannot know God by personal inquiry unless God has shown Himself to him (Job 1:7; Deuteronomy 29:29). Man cannot possess a complete understanding of God. Man would need to be more powerful than God in order to possess such knowledge.

At the same time, a man can know God at a degree that is entirely sufficient for his particular need. He can only know this because God chose to show Himself to man.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of this unit, the student should be able to:

  • Explain eternity of Christ
  • Give brief explanation of the Attributes of Christ.
  • State the fact about the Deity of Christ.

At the same time, a man can know God at a degree that is entirely sufficient for his particular need. He can only know this because God chose to show Himself to man.

God employed holy persons to pen the Scripture in order to preserve his revealed truth. According to D. McCain (27), God would have communicated this truth to Adam and Eve and then trusted them to orally transmit it to their offspring, who in turn would transmit it to their offspring. It is clear that this technique was employed to some extent, but with time God’s revelation would become perverted.

CERTIFICATION

At the end of this course, the student will be entitled to a certification issued from Anchor University, Lagos.
