Deut ppt-015

  1. 1. “ aseity” of God Independent, Self-contained ( vs. derivative, dependent creature ) = Yahweh “ condescension” of God He “comes down” ( to our creature level ) in conversation and contract-making
  2. 3. Gen. 22:15-18 confirmation Gen. 17:1-14 the symbol Gen. 15:5-21 the signing Unconditional blessing by a superior to an inferior merely on the basis of the benefactor’s good will and loyalty of the beneficiary Gen. 12:1-3 the call Royal Grant Abrahamic Covenant

  4. 6. Providence of Testing Test 1 Test 4 Test 2 Test 3 + + - ? Am I going to trust the Lord with the consequences of a bad choice?? God changes not—still sovereignly, omnipotently loves!!
  5. 8. <ul><li>“ What distinguishes Yahweh so sharply from Baal is His intimate association with history . He was not bound to the cycle of the seasons but guided his people through history toward a goal. The decisive event was not the victory over the primeval dragon [of chaos] but the victory over the Egyptians. . . .” </li></ul><ul><li>A. S. Kapelrud, The Ras Shamra Discoveries and the Old Testament . p52 . </li></ul>
  6. 9. “ There is no such thing as revealed truth. There are truths of revelation, that is to say, propositions which express the results of correct thinking concerning revelation; but they are not themselves directly revealed.” – Liberal theologian William Temple
  7. 10. <ul><li>“ When we review the geographical data as a whole the details appear to be much too accurate to be due either to chance or to oral tradition. The account of the journeyings in chapters 1-3 is altogether realistic and quite unlike an introduction prefixed to a collection of old laws; it bears every sign of originality. The views described. . .of the Moabite country. . .must have been seen by human eyes; the antiquarian notes also belong to the period and are not the result of archaeological research .” </li></ul><ul><li>G. T. Manley, The Book of the Law: Studies in the Date of Deuteronomy , p 64. </li></ul>
