So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts (2 Pet 1:19)

A Short DESCIPTION OF SUBJECTS

Apologetics is a branch of theology devoted to the defence of the divine origin and authority of Christianity. This includes the defence of the existence of God . In this subject we study proof for creation, God and all relative facts. It is essential that authenticity of the Bible be understood and believed before we can expect anyone to believe it and its revelation of God.
 
Hermeneutics is concerned with explaining, translating or interpreting the Bible. The purpose of hermeneutics is to establish guidelines and rules for the interpretation of written documents. The goal of Hermeneutics is to discover the thoughts and meanings of the writers when they communicated through the medium of the written document. Any written document is subject to misinterpretation. The Bible is no exception. The written documents we base our faith on present a special problem for us because they were written between 2,000-3,500 years ago and communicated to people in societies, cultures and languages very different from ours.


The Bible. This study will look at the origin of the Bible with special reference to the original manuscripts , different translations , languages and the timeline of the Bible. It is essential that we understand and have knowledge of the origin of the Bible text which we believe in.
 
The Old Testament. This study will be a survey of the Old Testament so that we can get a general bird’s eye view of God’s dealings with humanity before the incarnation of Christ Jesus.  A look at the timeline of the Old Testament will be part of this study and also includes a closer look at all the Old Testament books .
 
The Life of Christ. This study will cover all that we know from Gospels. The nativity;  the background, Baptism,  John the Baptist; Disciples and many more relevant issues including the life of the Apostles.


The Book of Acts.  We study this book next as it is a hinge or bridge from the earthly ministry of Christ  and the Jewish culture to the birth of the Church and the transition to the Gentiles. The key text is in chapter 1, namely – “you will be my witnesses”.
 
Church History.  Here we look at Church history from its origin to the present. We include  Church/State Struggle; Supremacy of the Pope, The Reformation,  Protest against Church/State Dominion, age of Reason, Revival and Denominations,  Individuals Interpret and Respond to the Authority of Scripture,  Missions and Modernism,  World Outreach; Science, Industry, Government Advance,  Ideologies and Liberalism, Men Trust in Human Nature and Human Achievement .
 
The New Testament. A study of all Paul’s Epistles, the General Epistles and the Prophetic book of Revelation.
 
Theology.  The word theology comes from two Greek words, theos (God) and logos (word).  From them we can see that theology is the study of God which, of course, includes his attributes.  This study will include many subdivisions  relative to theology.
 
Pneumatology. The word Pneumatology comes from two Greek words which mean "wind, air, spirit" and "word" - combining to mean "the study of the Holy Spirit." Pneumatology is the study of God the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity. It answers numerous important questions about the Holy Spirit: namely his Person and work.
 
Eschatology. This study will include all things pertaining to the last days as taught in Scripture including the Rapture of the Church, the battle of Armageddon, the Millennium, White throne judgement etc.
 
Homiletics. The term homiletics comes from the word homily, which basically means “a sermon.” Homiletics is the art of preparing sermons and preaching. Those who study homiletics seek to improve their skill at communicating the gospel and other biblical topics which sort under practical theology.
