Scripture and Doctrine Seminar

Historically doctrine has developed as the church needed to give an account of what it believed and to protect itself from heresy. SADS explores the move from Scripture to the formulation of doctrine, and how doctrine and tradition illuminate our reading of the Bible.


SADS focuses on the intersection of Scripture and Doctrine. Insofar as doctrine captures the message of the Bible it also provides an indispensable lens through which to read Scripture and informs our faithful witness to Christ in His world.

The Committee

Geoffrey Fulkerson (Dordt University; chair), Luke Stamps (Oklahoma Baptist University), Steve Harris (Elim Church, Saskatoon, SK), and Benjamin Quinn (SEBTS).

Scripture-Based Models for Preaching

What can Scripture itself teach us about preaching? How did biblical authors appropriate Scripture in their own preaching? What can we learn from portions of Scripture that were intended to urge certain ways of thinking to lead to right ways of living, such as Proverbs? This seminar explores these questions and others. The focus is not on homiletics per se, but rather models for preaching that emerge organically from Scripture itself.
