Reformed Forum & Geerhardus Vos

Lane Tipton and Camden Bucey have just started a new series over at Christ the Center (Reformed Forum) focused on Geerhardus Vos’ classic “Biblical Theology of Old and New Testaments”.

Here is the summary:

“Roughly each month, Lane and Camden will work through the pages of Vos’ Biblical Theology. While Vos’ book is foundational, it’s tough for the ‘uninitiated’ to access. This will be a great opportunity for study groups to listen to our discussions and work things out together. We hope everyone who participates will learn more about Reformed biblical theology.”

Click below to order the book and follow along!

Here is the first episode: Introduction

The Doctrine of Scripture Today

THE DOCTRINE OF SCRIPTURE TODAY

“Scripture is not a formal text book on every academic discipline, making scholarly enquiry and activity unnecessary, but it is not merely a handbook on faith and morals either. It contains what God wishes us to know and believe about all that is within its pages, such as creation and the history of mankind, and lays down the principles within which any study must be conducted. These principles cannot be disproved and the framework used can never be dispensed with. To depart from this mooring is to depart from the Word of God and to sail on the sea of free thought.” (Hywel Jones)

What Does it Mean?

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

“The biblical witness cannot be properly appreciated without the illuminating aid of the Spirit. The illumination which he imparts to the believing reader may differ in degree, but does not differ in kind, from the inspiration which moved the original speakers or writers, so that their words became the vehicle of God’s Word. The Spirit’s role is to testify of Christ, and he does so not least in Scripture. The Christocentric understanding of Scripture is not imposed on it from without, and not read into it by allegorization or any other artificial means; it is implicit in the message of Scripture, as that message is made plain by the Spirit. To grasp the witness of Scripture to Christ is the chief end of biblical interpretation.” (F.F. Bruce)
