Blogging Through Biblical DoctrineHave you wanted to read a theology book, but haven’t known where to begin? In this series, Jess is blogging through John MacArthur and Richard Mayhue’s book, Biblical Doctrine. Print the study guides at the bottom of each post (or on the Resources page) and follow along! Also, be sure to join the associated women’s Facebook page to discuss the study with other Christian women. Finally, if you want to go back and start at the beginning you may find the Introduction article here.
I am so excited to start a new chapter with you this week! And it seems appropriate to be discussing Jesus Christ as we approach Easter. We will, however, be studying Christ long after Easter passes us by. Like our last chapter, “Chapter 4: Christology” has ten sections. Here is your reading plan for the upcoming weeks.
This chapter gives us the theology of the second person of the Trinity, God the Son. I enjoy the way this chapter is laid out: first discussing the preincarnate Christ; then the Old Testament prophesies of Christ; then the incarnation, with His birth, ministry, and His trials; from there it goes on to His death and atonement; His resurrection and ascension; and finally Christ glorified.
I don’t have any further resources for you today. Instead, I encourage you to familiarize yourself with the chapter. Read the headings. Get a rough outline in your mind of what this chapter entails. And prepare your mind and heart as we embark on this new section in our study of Biblical Doctrine.
Here is your study guide for this week Christology 1.
I’ll see you next week for our discussion on Old Testament prophesies.
