TH102 Introducing Bible Doctrine II: The Triune God and His Heavenly Host (Videos)

Ronn Johnson, Carl Sanders

| Lexham Press | 2013

Details

Why do Christians believe in a Trinity? What is the relationship God and angels? How does God relate to his creation? Why does evil exist? Drs. Ronn Johnson and Carl Sanders introduce students to the academic discussion of these questions by examining the biblical descriptions of the Persons of the Trinity (God, Christ, Holy Spirit) and for the members of God’s heavenly host. The course also discusses God’s providential relationship to creation, his divine knowledge, and the problem of evil.

Ronn Johnson

Dr. Ronn Johnson, lecturer in biblical studies at the University of Northwestern St. Paul, Minnesota, has been the senior pastor at his church, Coon Rapids Evangelical Free, since 2006. He previously taught in the Bible departments at Pillsbury Baptist Bible College (1991–1994) and The Master’s College (1994–1996).

Dr. Johnson is well known by his students for demanding that they think about what they believe instead of being passive listeners. His approach is the opposite of proof-texting—simply quoting Bible verses without consideration of what they might mean in context. His goal is to drive home the point that the Bible is more than a collection of verses to be memorized and thrown into play—it’s a message from God that had a clear, coherent purpose that we need to hear without imposing our own traditions on the text. That approach of loyalty to the Bible above all else comes through in his Mobile Ed sessions on Bible doctrine.

He and his wife, Susan, have three teenage children. His pastimes include reading and giving too much attention to Kirby, the family dog.

Dr. Carl Sanders is an associate professor of theology at Lancaster Bible College’s Capital Bible Seminary. He has taught at college and seminary levels since 1999 at several schools: Bethel University (St. Paul, Minnesota), Northwestern College (St. Paul, Minnesota), and Washington Bible College in Washington, DC, where he also served as chair of the Bible and theology department (2003–2012).

Dr. Sanders is well liked by his students for his down-to-earth presentation of Bible doctrine. Students quickly learn that he enjoys talking about theology and has a quick wit. Among his strengths as a lecturer are his ability to distill information to essential elements, as well as his good-natured way of fairly explaining differences in theological positions. Dr. Sanders has a keen interest in urban ministry and has served for many years in racially diverse urban congregations. His interest in local-church experience helps him practice theology in ways that reflect the diversity present in the body of Christ. He strives to make theology interesting and practical.
