There is much talk in the church today about "inheritance". From healing and the ending of injustices to great revival and financial prosperity, what some have haphazardly or intentionally called the "inheritance" of the believer either falls far short or is completely set against the Bible's description of our inheritance. Put simply, we have mistaken our childhood $5/week 'allowance' for an opulent estate and ownership of the family business.

A day is coming when God will dwell among men on the earth again (Revelation 21:3), when there is no more death, sorrow, crying...

In light of the Day of the LORD being near, patient, enduring faith in God, His Messiah, and the restoration of all things is the foundation of the church's mission in this age. The church is called to faithfully witness to Jesus and the judgment to come, which is essentially amnestic in nature, as we represent the kindness and longsuffering of the Lord towards the wicked.

This amnestic witness is best typified in martyrdom, which the church must embrace wholeheartedly at the end of the age as wickedness comes to its fullest expression. The scriptures plainly declare that...

Jesus said that the "gospel of the kingdom" would be preached before the end of the age (Matthew 24:14), but in the West, "the kingdom" is ambiguous, spiritual, "supernatural", and "invading".

Most modern believers base their understanding of "the kingdom" on an unbiblical worldview, dichotomizing "natural" and "supernatural". However, the scriptures speak clearly of "the kingdom of God" being the hope, anchor, and reward of the righteous.

In Session 6 of the Biblical Theology Seminar, John Harrigan brings clarity to the confusion that an unbiblical worldview has...

The resurrection of the body is a doctrine held by the normal churchgoer in the West, but is mostly retained in rhetoric and not believed with unyielding certainty as it was in the early church. Most believe in a resurrection, but believe in an ethereal, "heavenward" resurrection where we will play a harp on a cloud in a never-ending worship service.

The resurrection of the body and the restoration of the earth to its original glory is the hope of every believer. The Holy Spirit is the "down payment" of our resurrection and testifies to the coming Day through signs, wonders, and...

Modern Western Christian theology has developed in tandem with the Western worldview, which incorrectly divides existence into two distinct realms - "natural" and "supernatural". Because of this unbiblical dichotomy, two streams of thought have developed regarding salvation and sovereignty - that God is "saving souls for an ethereal heaven" (float on a cloud and play a harp), and/or God is attempting to regain dominion over the world through the church (transforming society and taking dominion).

In session 3 of the Biblical Theology Seminar, John Harrigan teaches on the...

A worldview is the way we look at the world, how we interpret the events that happen within the world, and what our function in the world is. Modern Western Christians have a worldview that is significantly different from the worldview described in the Bible and understood by the biblical authors.

In this session, John Harrigan walks through Genesis 1 and describes the worldview of the Bible, comparing and contrasting it to the modern Western worldview based on Greek philosophy.

Because one's worldview affects the way scripture is interpreted, this session is highly...
