Keller Discussion Response I

        In part I, Tim Keller discusses some objections to the truth of Christianity, saying that the truth of Christianity is reasonable and existential. He says that Christian truth is reasonable because he thinks Christian argument and truth is overall strong, and that Christian truth is existential which because of this strong experience of God’s existence. In my opinion, even though Christian truth can be supported by abundant external evidence and we Christians can experience the existence of God, Christian truth is only based on the internal evidence which is rooted in Scripture, the word of the triune God. In addition, the existence of God can only be proved by God himself. 继续阅读 »

Chang Lecture Response I

         In the lecture, Joanny Chang focuses on the topic of Confucian ethics, and she discusses the development of Confucianism in ancient China chronologically. I will demonstrate that strictly speaking, Confucianism is not a religion, and then I will critique the worldview of Confucianists. To begin with, as for me, even though the system of Confucianism seems religious (and superficially speaking of Confucianism, it even has some notions in common with Christianity, such as the notion and the consciousness of heaven as believed by kings of the Zhou dynasty), 继续阅读 »

【ST 101】神学导论:Digest 3

课程:【ST 101】Prolegomena 神学导论
教授:Dr. David Garner
学期:2016 Fall
成绩:99% (A)

E. J. Young, Thy Word is Truth (Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1957), Chapters 3, 5 (pp. 65–82, 113–138)
           In chapter 3, Young demonstrates that the Bible is also written by human authors. At the very beginning, Young refutes the false understanding of the doctrine of inspiration. Then, Young says that according to the Bible, the human authors are the instruments of God who speaks his word through the authors. Then, he states, human authors are both holy men and sinful men, and according to the New Testament, the authors are real men. However, Young points out that God also prepares the human authors in their daily lives so that they can complete the writing tasks, and that this is the providential work of God. 继续阅读 »

Comparison and Contrast on Canon

        When it comes to the topic of canon, the perspective of the Kruger passage from “Canon Revisited”1 is the opposite of that of the McDonald passage2 

        Kruger’s reasons are to support the thesis that the authority of the canon only depends on the canon itself. First, Kruger refutes the claim that the canon is determined by the community. As Kruger has mentioned, human involvement does not eliminate the possibility that God acts (internal evidence) in the development of the canon, and the development of the canon is not based on the human construction, but only based on the ultimate authority of 继续阅读 »

Herman Bavinck, Reformed Dogmatics (ed. by John Bolt; transl. by John Vriend; Grand Rapids: Baker, 2003), 1:353–85.
         In this passage, Bavinck refutes naturalism (rationalism) and Roman Catholic supernaturalism, which are two ways that wrongly interpret the meaning of the doctrine of revelation. In the first place, Bavinck uses the reformational view to prove Roman Catholic supernaturalism to be erroneous. In the second place, Bavinck points out the scriptural interpretation of revelation as a contrast to rationalistic naturalism.
         To begin with, Bavinck argues that Roman Catholic supernaturalism misinterprets the difference between the natural and the supernatural. Then Bavinck gives nuances to the two terms, saying that nature tends to be a more broad meaning that it encompasses the range of all the visible and invisible world, which draws a distinction between the natural and the supernatural. 继续阅读 »

【CH 221】早期教会史:Online Lectures Summary

课程:【CH 221】Ancient Church 早期教会史
教授:Dr. Carl Trueman
学期:2016 Fall
成绩:Pass/Fail 计算

         In the first lecture, Dr. Trueman focuses on the topic of the doctrine of inerrancy of the Bible. He points out three notions. The first notion is inscripturation. Inscripturation is the idea that God’s revelation can itself be expressed adequately in a verbal form, and Scripture itself points to the phenomenon that nothing is more fundamental to God’s identity than the fact that he speaks. There are three elements to this point: church government, or the structure of the church; the rule of faith; and Scripture, which is the standard and the foundation.Second, the notion of inspiration refers to Scripture as inspired and spoken by the Spirit. As Dr. Trueman stated, the Apostolic Fathers believed the dictation theory of inerrancy. They put the Scripture in relation to the existence of God. 继续阅读 »

成绩:97% (A)

Geerhardus Vos, Biblical Theology of the Old and New Testaments (Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1994), 3–26.
          In chapter one, Vos discusses what Biblical Theology is and how he does Biblical Theology. Vos defines Biblical Theology as “the process of the self-revelation of God deposited in the Bible” (Vos, 5). First, Vos discusses the relationship between the revelation-process and the redemptive process, saying that they co-exist, yet the revelation-process ceases earlier than the redemptive process. By distinguishing the “objective and central” (Vos, 6) aspect and the “subjective and individual” (Vos, 6) aspect of redemption, Vos thinks that now revelation is only in relation to the “objective and central” (Vos, 6) redemptive process because the revelation in Scripture has ceased, yet the revelation in Scripture also largely affects the “subjective and individual” (Vos, 6) redemption. Second, Vos connects act revelation and word revelation. 继续阅读 »

传说中的 WTS 希腊语免修考试体验谈

与其说是一场考试,还不如说是一次体验,我喜欢各种好玩的体验,总觉得有些事没有经历过,人生就不圆满。于是,我在9月2号上午11点,就体验了一次传说中的希腊语免修考试,在考试的前一天晚上,我的失眠症又犯了,还没有褪黑素,就失眠到 5 点左右才睡着,加上他官网上写的是 9 点开始考,但给我发的邮件是 11 点,我不确定到底几点,所以我 8 点多就去学校了,后来考试的时候都快脑死亡了。

今天是美国法定假日劳动节,但是敬业的柯柔叔叔(Brandon Crowe)还是给我发邮件说我的希腊语 2 的免修考试过了。说实话,等这个成绩等的挺着急的,虽然9月2日考完到现在(9月5日),掐头算尾一共才四天。但是让我着急的是, 9月8号就开学了,我学费还没交呢,为什么没交呢?因为我如果不把 NT 011(希腊文1)选上,强大的 WTS 的计算机选课系统就不让我选新约导论 I(NT 101)这门课,所以学校让我象征性地把 NT 011 选上,等我希腊文免修考试过了之后再把这门课给我删下去。多少门课就对应多少学分,多少学分就对应多少学费,所以说这个免修考试的成绩不出来,我就交不了学费,所以我就着急。明天我就可以去交学费了。

【阅读报告】列王记

课程:旧约历史书与神学
教师:王俊豪牧师
学期:2015年秋季

Exegetical Problem

P.Satterthwaite 和 G. McConville 从两个方面来探讨列王记的文学鉴别议题。首先是列王记的文体。列王记的大部分经文都是叙事文体,而且明显是选择性的叙事,用叙事类比的方法、有许多公式化的语言,这些公式语言的用语,值得猜想有多少来自列王记的资料来源,不过这些公式语言也是很有创意的。其次是关于来源、成书日期、作者、编辑这几方面。值得探讨的是,列王记并未确切明文提到这几个方面,给出的信息非常少。这两位作者足足用六页的篇幅来探讨各种资料来源、可能性。有列王记本身的资料来源,其他可能的资料来源,以及其他的传统。只不过都不太具体。后来又提到,历史鉴别学用来源鉴别、形式鉴别、编修鉴别等方法来尝试更准确地解答这些疑难问题,大多都发现列王记有不一致的地方,并且举了一些学者的观点。 继续阅读 »
