The Flood Bible Study

By mdhauz | August 14, 2018 | 0 Comments

The world-wide flood and the saving of Noah and his family in an ark is an historical event (Gen 6-9).  The Lord was grieved at the general wickedness of man.  This widespread corruption  is seen in the actions of Cain’s descendants (Gen. 4:17-24).  In contrast, the descendants of Seth (Gen 4:25-5:32) give us a description […]

Creation/Evolution Bible Study

By mdhauz | August 1, 2018 | 0 Comments

The Bible is not a science book, nor is it designed with the purpose of presenting to us scientific principles, nevertheless, where the Bible speaks of creation it always tells the truth. The Triune God created the world in six normal days as described by Genesis, chapter one.  Both theistic evolution and atheistic evolution deny […]

Class #12:  This week we  examined a host of Bible passages which bear witness to our one God and three persons.  Applying the rules we learned concerning the internal and external works of  the Trinity, we went through some useful and helpful observations that can help us in clearly speaking about the Holy Trinity–so that […]

Theology Summary Bible Class, Pt. 11: The External Works of the Trinity

By luther | July 15, 2018 | 0 Comments

Class #11:  Last week we learned that the external works of God are undivided.  “When God outside His essence works something among His creatures, then the three persons are together and work together, because there is one doer and maker.”  The corollary, which needs to be maintained, is: “For in the external works the three […]

Theology Summary Bible Class, Part 10: The Works of the Trinity

By mdhauz | July 10, 2018 | 0 Comments

Class #10:  How do we speak about the Triune God?  The Athanasian Creed correctly instructs us that we need to do it “not confounding the persons nor dividing the substance.”  In order to speak correctly, we must understand where the Holy Scriptures are speaking about the unity of God and where they are speaking about […]

Theology Summary Bible Class Pt.9: Face to Face

By mdhauz | July 7, 2018 | 0 Comments

Class #9:  We think that God is working, when we are victorious and everything is going our way.  When tragedy hits, we think that God has abandoned us. That kind of thinking  is dead wrong.  We learned from Jacob’s wrestling with God(Gen 32) and Manoah’s visit from God that we don’t recognize God. We don’t […]

By mdhauz | June 23, 2018 | 0 Comments

Class #8:  Romans 10:13-15 quotes Joel 2:32, “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” With this phrase, the New Testament and the Old Testament agree that “calling on the name of the LORD” encompasses (1) the entire revelation of Jesus Christ (2) through the pastoral ministry(the preaching of the Word, the […]

Theology Summary Bible Class, Pt. 7: Yahweh

By mdhauz | June 21, 2018 | 0 Comments

Class #7:  Exodus 3 is the greatest revelation of God’s proper name, “Yahweh,” in the Old Testament.  Verses 13-14 read, “Then Moses said to God, “Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is […]

Theology Summary Bible Class Pt. 6: The Name of the LORD

By mdhauz | June 14, 2018 | 0 Comments

Class #6:   Genesis 4:26, says, “And as for Seth, to him also a son was born; and he named him Enosh. Then men began to call on the name of the LORD.” The “name of the LORD” is not one particular name, nor does it simply denote prayer, as if there had been no prayer […]

Theology Summary Bible Class Pt. 5: Content to Know In Part

By mdhauz | May 31, 2018 | 0 Comments

Class #5:  God is incomprehensible and his substance is indivisible. Luther says, “We are at our wits’ end when we try to define God.”1  God’s essence and attributes are not separate.  God is not loving, as if it were a changeable attribute. The Scriptures tell us that “God is love” (1 john 4:8). He can’t […]
