Welcome to this Study Guide on Renewal Theology 2.

This unit builds on Renewal Theology I.  It develops the study of Christology, Anthropology, Pneumatology, and Soteriology. The simple words for these terms are: Christ, Humanity, Holy Spirit, and Salvation.  The notes attempt to interpret these major themes from the perspectives of a Pentecostal-Charismatic hermeneutic.   

As with Renewal Theology 1 the objectives are strongly linked with the notion that the learning of Theology comes out of ministry and practice.  Therefore, the student must be constantly aware of the need to raise the question: What does this point or principle or insight mean for life and ministry today? 

The topics have been prepared with a view to applications in Pastoral Ministry, Teaching, Mission and Evangelism situations. 

Again, the student should be mindful that the material is not primarily intended for academic learning.  However, mental exercise (one of our God-given functions) must become a willing servant under the tutoring of the Holy Spirit, so that the learning and the practising of Theology become a renewing experience.

The topics are grouped into four modules.

Module 1: Christology

Beginning with the idea of Divine Revelation and the need to have a transforming of interpreting the Scriptures we focus on the person of Christ.  Christ is seen as both God and Perfect Man.  The one person and two natures.  We consider His Birth, Life, Death, Resurrection and Exaltation.  Finally, we explore the truth of His rule and authority.

  1. Revelation and Navigation. A Transforming Hermeneutic
  2. Christ: God and Perfect Man. Two Natures. One Person
  3. Christ: Birth, Life, Death, Resurrection, Exaltation
  4. Christ: His Rule and Authority

Module 2: Anthropology

We now look at the theme of humanity, its creation, fall, and recreation.  We consider the notions of being complete in Christ by the grace of God and the power of the Holy Spirit.  We also discuss the problem of sin co-existing with righteousness.

  1.  A Biblical Anthropology: Humanity
  2.  The Human Fall: Consequences.
  3.  The New Humanity: Grace and Spirit-Filled

Module 3: Pneumatology

These topics look at Holy Spirit as Person both in the Old Testament and the New Testament.  We then consider the Holy Spirit as gift to all believers and then the baptism with the Spirit with fruit and gifts.  The module concludes with a focus on the activity of the Holy Spirit in the world as distinct but not separate from His activity in the church.

  1.  Holy Spirit as Person
  2.  Holy Spirit: Fruit and Gifts
  3.  Holy Spirit and the World

Module 4: Soteriology

You will study the origins of evil and sin, and against this background learn the meaning of the New Covenant.  Central to it all is the importance of Christ’s atonement out of which we define and describe what salvation really means.

  1. Soteriology: Evil and Sin
  2. New Covenant
  3. Atonement
  4.    Being Competent In Doing Theology

 

We all can learn more together about effective ministry. That learning is enhanced and expanded rapidly when we share our experiences and learning together. The ‘teacher’ usually shares from his or her experiences, but others can do also. So the more that our ministry education fosters mutuality, the more we can learn from one another.

We call this open education or open ministry education. It is open to everyone and everyone can be involved. It is not just for leaders. Our leaders can help us, but their main job is to equip the saints for the work of ministry for building up the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:12). We can do these things in classes, small groups, seminars, training courses and home or church groups.
