Transcript of CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE
-- a belief or set of beliefs held by a church
D - Deity of Jesus Christ
Jesus is creator God (John 1; Hebrews 1; and Revelation 1)
Jesus claimed to be God in word and deed (Mark 14:61-62; John 5:18-20; 8:58; 10:30-33)
He lived a sinless life (John 8:46; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15; 1 John 3:5; 1 Peter 2:22)
He manifested power over nature
over fallen angels (Luke 4:35)
over sickness (Matthew 4:23)
over death itself (John 4:50; 11:43-44; 1 Corinthians 15)
sin -- any thought, word, or deed that fails to meet God's standard
O - Original Sin
"all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" - Romans 3:23
Adam's rebellion brought death to us all and tainted every aspect of our being (see Genesis 3; 1 Corinthians 15:21-22)
GOOD NEWS: God has provided redemption through the atoning work of the "second Adam" Jesus Christ (see Romans 5:12-21)
What implications does belief in a real historical Adam and Eve have on the Christian's need for Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior?
Canon of Scripture: 39 books of the Hebrew Old Testament with 27 books of the Greek New Testament divine in origin.
canon (literal ) - standard of measurement
C - Canon of Scripture
The Bible itself claims to be divinely inspired
(2 Timothy 3:16)
Divine inspiration can also be established by
- early date and consistency of manuscripts
(see Constructing A Christian Worldview pp. 148-150)
- archaeology (CCWV, pp. 151-152)
- fulfilled prophecy
The word "Trinity" is not found in the Bible.
Trinity - there is only One God who is three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The concept of the Trinity is found throughout the Bible!!!
There is only One God (Deuteronomy 6:4;
The Father is God, The Son is God, The Holy Spirit is God (1 Corinthians 8:6; Hebrews 1:8; Acts 5:3-4)
Father, Son, Holy Spirit are eternally distinct (Matthew 28:19; John 15:26; 17:1-26)
Note: Trinitarianism is not a contradiction of belief in one God and three gods at the same time.
Trinitarians believe in one what (God) and three who's (Father, Son, Holy Spirit)
Read Constructing A Christian Worldview, pp. 172-175
All four canonical Gospels record the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The resurrection is the cornerstone of the Christian faith because 1) it vindicates Jesus' claims to deity and 2) it ensures the future bodily resurrection unto eternal life for all who believe in Jesus Christ and claim Him as Savior (1 Corinthians 15;
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
Evidence For the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is ...
1) Transformation of the lives of the Disciples soon after Jesus was crucified.
2) The empty tomb and the fact that the corpse of Christ has never been discovered.
3) The reliability of the Bible and the fact that all four canonical Gospels record the resurrection.
4)The presence of the Christian Church today originally growing historically as a result of the preaching of Jesus' resurrection.
5) The inability of those who oppose Christianity to adequately explain away the empty tomb and the positive evidence for the resurrection.
Review Arguments For and Against the Resurrection of Jesus Christ! Read CCWV pp. 143-166
The doctrine of the incarnation is God becoming human flesh and dwelling among us
(see John 1:1; 14)
Jesus was fully God and fully man; he existed as the perfect unity in one person of a divine and a human nature (John 1; Colossians 2:9)
Theanthropos - God-man
lived a perfect sinless life and died a sinner's death to sufficiently atone, once and for all, for the sins of humanity
(John 1:29; Romans 5:1-21; Hebrews 10:11-18)

Jesus' resurrection from the dead inaugurates the renewal of all things
"If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new"
- 2 Corinthians 5:17
Scripture promises that those who believe in Christ's resurrection and confess him as Lord are reconciled to God and inherit eternal life in His presence
(John 3:16; Romans 10:9-10)
The new creation of faithful believers and the new creation of the natural world will be consummated in the resurrection when Jesus returns bodily to earth as the conquering king (Romans 8:18-25)
eschatology means "the study of end times"
Although Christians debate secondary aspects of eschatology, such as the timing of the tribulation or the meaning of the millennium, we are united in the truth that just as Christ came to earth once to bear the sins of the world, so too he will return again to gather the elect and to usher in the resurrection of all things
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Hebrews 9:27-28)
On the Day of Jesus' return, the just will be resurrected to eternal life and the unjust to eternal conscious punishment and separation from the grace of God (John 5:28-29)
Paradise Lost will be Paradise Restored, the problem of sin and Satan will be fully and finally resolved (Revelation 20-22).

"Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do you will save both yourself and your hearers" - 1 Timothy 4:16
