The Serpent-Crusher

by Jacob Preece  The LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you above all livestock and above all beasts of the field; on your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.”  – Genesis 3:14-15 The curse against the serpent is recognized by Adam and Eve as more than just a physical curse against an earthly animal. After all, they had seen snakes before, Adam having named it, and […]

Christ Jesus “in the form of God” and “the form of a servant:” Philippians 2:5-11

  by Andrew Lindsey In Philippians 2:5-11, the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul commands us to humility. This passage calls us to follow Christ as our example of humility. It also, implicitly, holds out a promise to us. God the Father exalted Christ Jesus due to His humble obedience. We who have been united to Christ by faith (1 Cor 6:17) will share in His exaltation as we follow His example. Paul gives an argument from the greater to the less. Christ exercised humility, as Calvin notes, “[B]y abasing Himself from the highest pinnacle of glory to the lowest […]

Thomas Cranmer: The English Reformer

by Tim Scott [Look at the bottom to see our latest edition of Firm in Faith] Thomas Cranmer was born on July 2, 1489, in Nottinghamshire, England. Little is known about his early childhood but he enrolled at Jesus College, Cambridge, at age 14. He went on to spend approximately 30 years at Cambridge, earning his bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees along the way. His writings from this period reveal a man who was more sympathetic to Erasmus’s humanism than he was to Martin Luther’s doctrinal reforms; and sometime around the year 1520, he became a Roman Catholic priest. Cranmer […]

Time Management

by T. Caleb Dye Matthew 22:37, “and [Jesus] said to them, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’” Well, it is the beginning of a new school year and this means hectic scheduling for all, regardless of whether you are a child or a parent.  It can seem almost impossible to have enough time to get everything done and not run yourself absolutely ragged.  I completely understand the weight this can have on a person.  My wife and I both are students, have jobs and an […]

Acts of the Risen Lord Review

Pastor Mitch has recently published a book review of Acts of the Risen Lord Jesus by Alan Thompson. This book is part of the New Studies in Biblical Theology series and covers the book of Acts. Since we are currently going through Acts in the Aletheia Sunday School class, it’d be good for us to read the review (especially if you have any part in teaching the class). Here’s the review: http://www.booksataglance.com/book-reviews/acts-risen-lord-jesus-lukes-account-gods-unfolding-plan-alan-j-thompson/

  • March 7, 2014

On Feb. 28th and Mar. 1st, I went to 9 Marks at SBTS. It was a great experience and learned a lot about how to better incorporate biblical theology in areas where I teach. However, I am not the only one that teaches biblical theology. Our pastors teach us biblical theology every week, and you might not even know it. So, this conference helped me to appreciate Pastor Mitch’s preaching even more, and his faithfulness to the text. So I want to help you understand what is biblical theology and how Pastors Mitch and Tim teach us it within their roles. What is Biblical […]
