Theology 626-628d Themes of he OT and NT

The Old Testament and New Testaments considered as distinct revelations, understood in the light of the teachings of the Heavenly Doctrine. The focus is on helping students grasp the larger themes in the literal sense that are the basis for the spiritual meaning, so that they can better teach and lead from and through the Word. We are assuming a basic familiarity with the Old and New Testaments.

Since the Lord created heaven and earth, He is the supreme governor over all things.  His government is the activity of His love, by means of His wisdom, as He provides every individual human being the means to be connected to Him in a bond of love and wisdom.  The book, Divine Providence, outlines this provision, and clearly shows the relationship between Creator and creature.

The systematic teachings of the Writings about the Lord: His essential nature from eternity; His relationship with us before the advent; why He needed to “come”; what He accomplished (redemption), how He accomplished it (glorification of His human); the enduring effect of the glorified Divine Natural/Divine Human, and of the Lord’s presence /“proceeding” through it. More specifically, in considering His glorification process we look at His conception, heredity, and development in the human. We especially look at the nature of His temptations, which were the very means of His subjugating the hells.
