More on the Trinity, plus Creation & Sin (Basic Theology Session 4)


We started off our theology sessions looking at Jesus who is the Revelation of God and who is God, we then went on to look at His Incarnation, and from there we got to the Trinity. Last week we had the fourth session, looking some more at the doctrine of the Trinity, plus a few quick points about Creation (mainly on what it means that Creation is the work of the Triune God) and finally spent about a twenty minutes or so on the doctrine of sin. It's quick. Yep, that's not a lot of time to think about big subjects, but it's quick, it's an overview, and hopefully it's a bit helpful.

There really don't seem to be an awful lot of good, evangelical resources on the doctrine of sin, and yet it is such a foundational doctrine. But if you do want some more detailed, yet very accessible and clear teaching on the doctrine of sin, I recommend Mike Reeves' talks on Sin and Evil (first two parts, last part). (In fact, I'm sure my 20 minute, boiled down session on sin bears more than a passing resemblance to parts of Reeves' presentation in the main points - and I gratefully acknowledge the influence of his teaching.)

All the Basic Theology talks so far are on the Audio page (see the Tab at the top). Tonight we'll be looking at Jesus Our Substitute.
