Overview

In this three-course Systematic Theology Bundle, Dr. Michael Allen provides thorough and easy-to-follow teaching on several important Christian subjects: the doctrine of God, creation, Christ (Christology), the church (ecclesiology), salvation (soteriology), and last things (eschatology). Dr. Allen covers all of these subjects with a careful eye toward the breadth of Scripture, the mystery of the gospel, the church’s historical tradition, and application for contemporary ministry. These courses will show you that systematic theology is not a restrictive box or intellectual exercise, but a lens through which you are better enabled to live faithfully before God and lovingly among others.

Individual Courses

TH111: Doctrine of God and Creation: A Reformed Perspective

  • Instructor: R. Michael Allen
  • Video hours: 9

What is the relationship between Holy Scripture and Christian tradition, and how do you use both to live in the world as Christ’s disciple? These are some of the questions Dr. Michael Allen explores in TH111. Using John Calvin’s image of theology as spectacles, Dr. Allen shows how Scripture and theological tradition work together to shape how we see, interact with, and serve the world in our own unique time and place.

After defining and explaining different theological methods, Dr. Allen provides an in-depth look at the character of God—in particular God’s triunity—in order to explain the relationship between God and humanity. Dr. Allen shows how our creaturely origins inform our rightful dependency on God and God’s unique covenant with humanity. He also explains how being created in God’s image affects our understanding of relationships, morality, and missions. This course concludes with a reflection on sin’s impact on God’s covenant with humanity and our vocation as divine image bearers.

TH112: Doctrine of Christ and the Church: A Reformed Perspective

  • Instructor: R. Michael Allen
  • Video hours: 4

In TH112, Dr. Allen focuses on the doctrines of Christ (Christology) and the church (ecclesiology), carefully explaining how Christ—as Prophet, Priest, and King—fulfills the covenant of grace conveyed throughout the whole of Scripture and the implications of this for the life of the church as the site of God’s covenantal promises. This course will introduce and respond to a wide variety of heresies concerning Jesus—many of which still arise today—including those from the Ebionites, Docetists, Apollinarians, Arians, Monophysites, and Nestorians. This course will help you address unorthodox portrayals of Jesus Christ with a thoughtful, biblical, and historical response; explain how the resurrected Christ is working through the church; and show how this understanding offers practical application for real-life ministry issues.

Contents:

  • Covenant of Grace
  • Incarnation and Early Heresies: Ebionites, Docetists, Apollinarians, and Arians

TH113: Doctrine of Salvation and Eschatology: A Reformed Perspective

  • Instructor: R. Michael Allen
  • Video hours: 9

Dr. Allen concludes this bundle with TH113, which 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. 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.
