Abraham And Eliezer: The Name And Role Of Poor Lazarus In Luke 16:19-31, Keith L. Yoder 2018 University of Massachusetts

Abraham And Eliezer: The Name And Role Of Poor Lazarus In Luke 16:19-31, Keith L. Yoder

Keith L. Yoder

This is a rough draft presentation proposal for the March 2018 Annual Meeting of the Eastern Great Lakes Biblical Society. I will examine here two questions about Luke’s parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus. First, what is the origin of the beggar’s name “Lazarus”, and second, what precisely is his role, or literary function, in the storyline?  
I present here evidence from the Septuagint version of Genesis to support the proposal that Luke’s Lazarus is indeed Abraham’s Eliezer, “sent back from the dead”, to present the Rich Man an opportunity to show mercy, a test ...


Nature Of Sin, Dylan Halter 2018 Liberty University

Nature Of Sin, Dylan Halter

The Kabod

Sin is inescapable. Since the Fall, mankind has been doomed. God continuously provided His people an opportunity for repentance, but the cataclysmic effects of sin continued. Understanding the nature of sin is one of the most important doctrines for apologetics, evangelism, discipleship, and pastoral teachings. Upon firmly applying hermeneutics, historical tradition, theological exegesis, and practical applications, followers of the Way are more equipped to do the Will of the Lord. The serpent succeeded in the garden, but the Savior defeated death on the Cross, bringing about redemption and restoration for all of humanity.


Practical Prophecy, Dylan Halter 2018 Liberty University

Practical Prophecy, Dylan Halter

The Kabod

Prophets of the Old Testament provided the nation of Israel a direct line of communication with the Lord. Their job was to edify the nation, keeping their praise towards the Creator. However, Israel began to pull away from the Lord during the reign of the kings and the ensuing civil war. Their disobedience would continue through the post-exilic moments following the Babylonian invasion through idolatry, social injustice, and religious ritualism. Today, the Old Testament prophets speak to the same situations. This lethal triad transcends time and provides believers, both Jew and Gentile, an opportunity for repentance, redirection, and rededication to ...


Fine-Tuning The Hermeneutical Spiral, Arlyn S. Drew 2018 Andrews University

Fine-Tuning The Hermeneutical Spiral, Arlyn S. Drew

Seminary Scholarship Symposium

A hermeneutical spiral model illustrates the temporal process of inductive and deductive reasoning for interpretation. The Hermeneutical Spiral by Osborne describes a conical spiral that stretches from the ancient text to the modern world of the listener. Unfortunately, this model implies a trade-off of biblical authority for increasing relevance as it moves away from Scripture. To avoid this problem a viable hermeneutical model must allow Scripture to norm the whole process (Sola Scriptura). In addition, the worlds of meaning unpacked from the text (Tota Scriptura), the worlds of meaning of the interpreter (Prima Scriptura), and the fusion of those worlds ...


The Significance Of Theological Interpretation As Demonstrated In Case Study: Adam-Christ Typology And Categories Of Representation, Timothy J. Arena 2018 Andrews University

The Significance Of Theological Interpretation As Demonstrated In Case Study: Adam-Christ Typology And Categories Of Representation, Timothy J. Arena

Seminary Scholarship Symposium

To whom are the Scriptures directed? What is their ultimate source? In the study of any given passage of Scripture, how much importance, if any, should be attached to other passages of Scripture, written by different authors, for the purpose of understanding its meaning? Is typology a legitimate hermeneutical methodology, or does it inevitably twist the local meanings of passages away from their historical contexts? This poster will present an argument for the importance of the ways in which theological exegesis provides compelling answers for these questions, and will present a case study of the use of this method in ...


Hierarchy Or Mutuality In The Trinity? A Case Study On The Relationship Of The Son And The Holy Spirit In The New Testament, Matthew L. Tinkham Jr. 2018 Andrews University

Hierarchy Or Mutuality In The Trinity? A Case Study On The Relationship Of The Son And The Holy Spirit In The New Testament, Matthew L. Tinkham Jr.

Seminary Scholarship Symposium

Statement of the Problem: Over the last forty years, the Trinity has become a central topic of debate among evangelical theologians in all disciplines due to the popularization of a newer conception of the Trinity—referred to by many as eternal, functional subordination (EFS), but will hereafter be called “neo-subordinationism.” Neo-subordinationism affirms that the three persons of the Trinity—Father, Son and Spirit—are fully equal ontologically, but denies equality in terms of roles, functions, and authority. It asserts that there is a unilateral-hierarchical ordering pattern that is essential to the triune God in which the Son is exclusively subordinated ...
