Covenant Theology - 3.00 Hours

This course 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) the 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 and pastoral ministry.

The Making of Modern Theology - 2.00 Hours

The Making of Modern Theology: Christianity and the Enlightenment. Everyone in the West—Christian or non-Christian—has been deeply affected by the intellectual upheaval that took place during the Long Eighteenth Century (1688-1815). The period often known as the Enlightenment challenged centuries-old assumptions about God, revelation, knowledge, and virtue. This course will look at a variety of leading thinkers from John Locke to John Witherspoon, from Francis Bacon to Francis Hutcheson, and from Thomas Hobbes to Thomas Reid. By exploring the themes and figures from the Enlightenment period, we will better understand familiar theologians like Jonathan Edwards and familiar parts of our history like the Great Awakening and the legacy of Old Princeton. The intellectual currents flowing into, out of, and through the eighteenth century are still important for ministry today, for these currents achieved nothing less than the creation of the modern world and modern theology.
