About this course

Approaching the doctrine of salvation through the lens of a divine council worldview will be a unique experience for everyone taking this course. Dr. Ronn Johnson will begin our study by carefully explaining the cosmology of the biblical world, noting how the ancient reader would have understood the relationships of God, rebellious spirits, and human beings. We will then move through the biblical story itself, identifying how familiar terms such as faith, idolatry, righteousness, judgment, and resurrection find expression in the narrative of human salvation. Along the way, we will explore the many Old Testament and New Testament examples of individuals becoming right with God. Our course will conclude by celebrating the ministry of Jesus Christ, the “pioneer and perfecter” (Hebrews 12:2) of our Christian faith, and answer the question still being asked by so many today: "What must I do to be saved?"
