Dispensation Divisions: The recognition of distinctions in the progress of revelation reveals different dispensations that God uses in the outworking of His plan for the ages.
The sine qua non is what distinguishes a dispensationalist from all others: 1. Consistent use of a normative interpretation; 2. Leads to a distinction between Israel and the Church; 3. God’s overall purpose is to glorify Himself.
What is Logic? Principles that govern how we should think and speak; the study of right reason, or how to find truth, so that we come to correct conclusions.
Law of Identity: if a statement is true, then it’s true.
Law of non-contradiction: if a statement is true, then it can’t be false.
Law of Excluded Middle: A statement is either true or false.
1st Step: Inductively arrive at an exegetical proposition that accurately reflects the intended meaning of the Author/author that harmonizes with first principles of logic
2nd Step: Use Scripture to interpret Scripture and existing doctrinal beliefs.
3rd Step: Then justifications are offered and appropriate illustrations are made.
4th Step: The doctrine is then examined under the lens of general revelation and natural law to see potential doctrine successfully coheres with these
5th Step: examine the propositional statement under the lens of historical theology for correlative insight.
6th Step: Personal and community life-applications are made in order to test livability.
Internal Case: 1. What the Scripture says of itself: What is inspired: 2 Tim. 3:16-17 2. Why would I have a lower view of Scripture than Jesus Christ Himself? 3. Fulfillment of literal Prophecy: 27% of Scripture is prophetic. Little over 1/2 of all these prophecies ha
Manuscript Case: We have more manuscripts than any other work or collection of ancient antiquity. We have 7 copies of Plato’s, 5,800+ N.T.
Uniqueness Case: 1. Argument from Continuity: Written over approx. 1,500 year span; Written by more than 40 authors from every walk of life. 2. Unique in its Circulation, Translation, Survival, Through Time, Through Persecution, Through Criticism Unique in its Teachings
Historical Case: 1. But is your testimony true? Oral testimony; Written testimony; Physical testimony ; Multiple independent sources strengthens case; early attestation is preferred. 2. The writers wrote as eyewitnesses or wrote as eyewitness accounts (court of law); 3. They appealed to the knowledge of the audience of whom they were writing. If their claims weren’t true, then their claims would not have gained so much currency. 4. The writers (except for John) died martyrs death: they truly believed this was true.
How to handle difficulties in the Bible I. Abstract Approach (B.B. Warfield) Difficulties in Scripture do not have to be explained; the weight of evidence for inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible is so great no difficulty could overthrow it. The case rests on the doctrinal evidence for in II. Harmonistic Approach (Dr. Norman Geisler) Belief in inerrancy based on the doctrinal teachings of inspiration. Difficulties presented can be resolved, if necessary using conjecture. III. Moderate Harmonistic Approach (Everett Harrison) The problems are taken seriously, and an effort is made to solve them far as this is reasonably possible with the data currently available. IV. Errant Source Approach (Edward J. Carnell) Inspiration guarantees only an accurate reproducing of the sources employed, not a correcting of them. If the source contained a flawed reference, the Scripture writer recorded the error as it was in th V. Biblical Errancy Approach (Dewey Beegle) The Bible contains errors-real and insoluble problems. They should be accepted rather than explained away. Whatever inspiration is, it is not verbal. Therefore, it is not possible or necessary to reconcile
