Transcript of CMIN 301 (Su '17) T9b - The Seven Biblical Sources for Application

Finding the moral lesson:
Application of Joshua 24:15
Applying the Message
“But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."
Believers were given a list of ministry options in the local church where they can serve the Lord. (e.g., children's ministry)

in narratives
in narratives
and Symbols
Songs and Prayers
- All rules call for obedience
E.g., Gen 17:10
“This is my covenant with you and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep: Every male among you shall be circumcised.”
- Think about
- Apply the ethical
standard to our
particulars (our town)
E.g., Gal 6:2
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
E.g., Ex 20:12
"Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.”
“If doctrine X is true, what follows?”
- Can transform our lives
- Who needs this
doctrine? When?
Doctrine of the Trinity
- Focus first on the

redeeming work
of God
Moral lessons
come second
E.g., 1. Sam. 17:47
“All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD’s, and he will give all of you into our hands."
Moral lesson
comes before
the theological lesson
E.g., Matt 12:1-7
1 ¶ At that time Jesus went through the cornfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick some ears of corn and eat them.
2 When the Pharisees saw this, they said to him, "Look! Your disciples are doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath."
3 He answered, "Haven’t you read what David did when he and his companions were hungry?
4 He entered the house of God, and he and his companions ate the consecrated bread—which was not lawful for them to do, but only for the priests.
5 Or haven’t you read in the Law that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple desecrate the day and yet are innocent?
6 I tell you that one greater than the temple is here.
7 If you had known what these words mean, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the innocent.
Narratives are normally
more descriptive than prescriptive
E.g., does the action show faithfulness to God and his covenant?
E.g., 1 Kings 11
- Speak their
own language
E.g., 2. Sam 10:4
So Hanun seized David’s men, shaved off half of each man’s beard, cut off their garments in the middle at the buttocks, and sent them away.
- Give room for imagination
- The Bible
us the
beautiful or ugly life.
- how to properly express
our negative feelings.
- language of the heart
- touch the emotions/spirit
more than our thinking.
