This is what we learned today:

Biblical Intro
  • There are 3 views of the millennium: post-millennialism, amillennialism, and premillennialism.
  • There are 7 years of tribulation before the establishment of the millennial kingdom.
  • The mystery kingdom is the Davidic kingdom that Jesus offered to the Jews but they rejected it. Because they rejected it, He postponed it and set up the church as the mystery kingdom until His coming which brings on the millennium.
  • There are 3 parts of the mystery kingdom: the last year of Jesus, the church, and the tribulation.

"Technically Jesus is not the king of the church. Technically He is not our king, but our husband in a figurative sense. He is the king of Israel and the king of the earth. We are His bride."
-- Emmons

Any volunteers to respond to that statement?

  • There are 57 hours for professional education. There are 48 for arts and sciences. There are 51 for Biblical Curriculum. That totals up to 156 hours to get 2 bachelor's.

  • I have taken and am in the process of taking:
  1. Old Testament 1
  2. Old Testament 2
  3. Four Gospels
  4. Doctrine 1
  5. Biblical Intro

  • I still need to take:
  1. Old Testament Poetics
  2. Prophetics 1
  3. Pauline Epistles 1
  4. Pauline Epistles 2
  5. General Epistles
  6. Prophetics 2
  7. Bible Elective (New Testament)
  8. Doctrine 2
  9. Doctrine 3
  10. Doctrine Elective
  11. Church History 1
  12. Church History 2

  • Dr Emmons did a "commercial" for studying in Jerusalem in our junior year to take care of our Doctrine and NT electives.

  • I am so glad we use the Hindu-Arabic way of counting.

Anatomy and Physiology
  • No wonder I'll never be in the medical field!

Four Gospels
  • It takes a whole 50 minutes for a class to come up with a definition for "parable."
  • It's a very tense, exciting class, but we never seem to get to the point.
  • Oliff is just strange. And he sings in class.

What I learned last night from Erin:

  • In Doctrine 3, you have to read Ryrie's book Dispensationalism and write a paper. According to Erin, "The book would be half the length if he stopped repeating himself."

This is fun. I just discovered how bullets work.

What I have to do this week:

  • Memorize Mark 1:1-3, 10:45; Philippians 2:5-11

  • Study for OT exam #1
  • Read Judges and Ruth again
  • Figure out if Mr Dunn's video camera can transfer video to my computer and then make a movie with Alexa
  • Get stuff ready to send to the Philippines
