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?"

What you'll learn

After completing this course, you'll be able to:

  • Describe the problem which stands behind the human need to “become saved” in the biblical story.

  • Identify how important concepts such as sin, faith, idolatry, sacrifice, and atonement function within the story of salvation.

  • Define how individuals were saved in the Old Testament and compare this to the offer of salvation in the New Testament.

  • Define the role that Jesus Christ plays in the attainment of our individual and corporate salvation.

His dissertation on the created gods of the Old Testament (“The Old Testament Background for Paul’s Principalities and Powers”) provided him the opportunity to research the divine council worldview of the Hebrew Bible and apply it to New Testament exegesis. Ronn has taught Bible and theology courses at the college level for over 20 years, has pastored two churches in the Minneapolis area for fifteen years, and enjoys hosting study trips to Israel. He and his wife Susan have three married children and five grandchildren. Ronn’s pastimes include working on his personal library and cheering for the Minnesota Vikings.

I read "Salvation By Allegiance Alone" a few years ago along with Dr Johnson's articles on Dr Heiser's blog. These started me on my path to a very similar set of thoughts that Dr Johnson articulated very well in this course. I'm going to replay this and study all the references several times but I can feel the "ring of truth" in the coherence with what Dr Heiser brought to my attention. I especially appreciated how the last modules answered my questions about what to share with unbelievers in telling them about the gospel.

Amazing Course

Terry Zeigler

This was an amazing course! It questioned my understanding of salvation, but also resolved issues about my own salvation. I really like Dr. Johnson's style of teaching. This is a must take course!!!

I couldn’t get enough from this course. The recommended study book was an eye opener also. Dr. Ronn Johnson delivers a wealth of information within each module. Watched the videos multiple multiple times times and always gleamed something I hadn’t caught from previous viewings. I highly recommended this course.

I am a pastor who has spent years doing what I sincerely love - the study of the Scriptures. But the instructor, Dr. Johnson, taught me truths that were below my surface knowledge of the doctrine of salvation. I made it a point to teach our congregation what the gospel of Yeshua really is -- the story of his life and career as Christ the king.
