Studying the Bible

How the bible is written

 

When it comes to Christian studies, there are a lot of terms to keep track of. It can be easy to confuse all the words you hear, especially when you don’t know exactly what they all mean. 

When you see the words “biblical studies” and “theology,” you might think they are the same thing.

 So, what is the difference?

Theology is the study of God while Biblical studies is the study of the Bible itself.  But there are ways in which you study God and ways to study the Bible

Theology is broader than religious studies but more focussed than philosophy, theology is a unique subject that looks at the world around us through the lens of religion

Christian theology is the study of Christian belief and practice. Such study concentrates primarily upon the texts of the Old Testament and the New Testament as well as on Christian tradition. Christian theologians use biblical exegesis, they analysing and discussing  texts.

When you use the lens of Biblical studies, you will study the Bible book by book. Theology takes a more topical approach. It divides the Bible into common themes or categories to better understand the overall message. 

Biblical studies examine the Bible’s scriptures and the cultures where these scriptures have originated, and provides instruction based on this research.

 

Definition of terms

 

From the Greek biblios, bibliology is the study of the book, or more specifically, the study of the Bible. It is vital to have a solid Bibliopoly, because if we don’t approach the Bible properly, then we have no real authority to speak on any of the other areas of systematic theology.

 

Before we look at the books of the Bible, let’s see where the word “Bible” comes from. It is originally from the Greek word “biblos” which was the name assigned to the outer coat of a papyrus reed in Egypt during the eleventh century B.C. The plural form of “biblos” is “biblia” which word the Christians by the second century A.D. were using to describe their writings. The Latin picked up the word, using the same spelling and it was then transliterated into French maintaining the Greek spelling. The English word came from the Old French, changing its ending making the word Bible

 

Paul in training his young protégée Timothy told him. “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” ~2 Timothy 3:16-17

 

Systematic theology, or systematics, is a discipline of Christian theology that formulates an orderly, rational, and coherent account of the doctrines of the Christian faith. It addresses issues such as what the Bible teaches about certain topics or what is true about God and His universe. It also builds on Biblical disciplines, church history, as well as Biblical and historical theology. Systematic theology shares itself with other disciplines such as constructive theology, dogmatics, ethics, apologetics, and philosophy of religion.

 

What is Doctrine 

A Christian doctrine is what the entire Bible has to say on one particular subject. Therefore, we speak of such things as the “doctrine” of Christ, the “doctrine” of God, and the “doctrine” of the church. This refers to what Christians believe about these subjects based upon the teaching of the Bible.

 

What is apologetics?

 

Christian apologetics is the intellectual defence of the truth of the Christian religion. The word apologetics itself stems from the Greek word apologia, which means simply an answer given in reply. Christian apologetics in discussion will most likely end up as a debate.
