Keys for Understanding Scripture (and your world)

  • Typologies in scripture:  Not allegories, simple, representative, true historic narrative with representative and prophetic value.
  • The fallen nature of man:  His fear, insecurity, sinfulness, restlessness, corrupting affect on the world.
  • The faithful remnant:  A faithful minority always endures fulfilling God’s purposes. 
  • The line of Christ:  The promise endures, tracing the physical line all the way to Jesus Christ. 

Applications

  • Stay faithful until the end.
  • Do not be carried away by the cares of the world.
  • Understand the nature of our gospel audience.
