Doing theology, as the exercise of asking and answering questions by consulting and combining various Scriptural teachings, takes a variety of forms. Understanding those approaches allows us to test theological conclusions. A biblical theology uses an approach that seeks to understand the direct teachings of Scripture in its context and holds loosely the answers to questions that are derived from indirect Scriptural inferences. This course is designed to help students build a solid theological framework built on an understanding of the direct teachings of Scripture while gaining skills in seeking for answers to real and immediate questions by applying principles of investigation based on sound practices of biblical theology.
