Doctoral Level

Dr. Jonathan Linebaugh

DM916 Scripture and Doctrine

3 credits  •  June 22-26  •  Fort Lauderdale, FL

**This course will not be offered again residentially in the coming academic year, so please be sure to register for this course!

Doctrine begins and ends with scriptural interpretation. By working with and testing this basic thesis this course will commend an account of the relationship between scripture and doctrine in which doctrine is understood as a reading of scripture and as that which enables us to read scripture well. To consider this reciprocal relationship—theology flows from scripture and returns us to scripture as better readers—this course will explore the character and content of the Bible, the relationship between the Old and New Testament, the process and history of interpretation, and a number of case studies demonstrating the biblical basis for doctrinal formulations and, conversely, how doctrinal formulations can aid biblical interpretation. Throughout, attention will be given to the effectiveness and creativity of God’s word, indicating that ultimately it is not we who interpret scripture, but God who interprets us through his word. Taught by Dr. Jonathan Linebaugh.

Questions of appropriateness of humor, overuse of stories, proper storytelling technique, and how such tools can either hurt/help a sermon will be discussed. The student should be prepared to think through the use of humor and storytelling in his/her own ministry.
