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. The passage, 1 Corinthians 15.1-4, 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 wonderful salvation which is available to all through faith alone and to inform, encourage and strengthen the believer in the Christian faith and life.
Three factors are essential for correct biblical interpretation: 1) understanding that the Scriptures are God-breathed (θεόπνευστος, 2 Timothy 3.16) 2) understanding that God has progressively revealed the Scriptures within a structural framework, and 3) maintaining a sound, consistent interpretative method (hermeneutic). A normal, i.e., non-symbolic or figurative, hermeneutic is essential for sound interpretation in the theological fields of soteriology, Christology, Israelology, ecclesiology, anthropology, pneumatology, angelology, and eschatology.
Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. — Jeremiah 17:7-8
