Bible Doctrine is a site that emphasizes Paul’s “gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20.24), that Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15.1-4). The Corinthian passage is the clearest definition of Paul’s gospel which is the “power of salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1.16-17). The articles have been written to reveal God’s love and His wonderful salvation for all who will believe and to inform, encourage, and strengthen believers in the Christian faith and life.
Three factors are essential for correct biblical interpretation: 1) understanding the Scriptures are God-breathed (θεόπνευστος, 2 Timothy 3.16) 2) understanding God has progressively revealed the Scriptures within a structural framework, and 3) maintaining a sound, consistent interpretative method (hermeneutic). A normal, non-symbolic or figurative, hermeneutic is essential for sound interpretation in the fields of theology: soteriology, Christology, Israelology, ecclesiology, anthropology, pneumatology, angelology, and eschatology.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. — Isaiah 9:6-7
