Doctrine of Salvation and Eschatology: A Reformed Perspective (TH113) covers the doctrine of salvation (Soteriology), or how God saves us, and the last things (Eschatology): the return of Christ, the coming judgment, and the resurrection and eternal life we anticipate. Before walking you through the doctrine of salvation and last things, Dr. Michael Allen provides a thoroughly biblical understanding of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit (Pneumatology): the Holy Spirit’s unique work and how the Third Person of the Trinity relates to the Father and the Son. Dr. Allen then teaches you about the different means of grace available to the church, including a definition of the sacraments, an explanation of the difference between infant and believer baptism, the Lord’s Supper, and the sacramental nature of prayer. This course concludes with an in-depth study of the last things, including how the Old Testament relates to the New Testament, the curse of Gen 3, the Kuyperian New-Calvinism position, and the complex relationship between the church and wider culture.
