A Wesleyan Understanding of the Authority of Scripture (Two Webinars)
Beginning with a historical perspective, Dr. Thomas Noble will consider the role given to Scripture in the New Testament church, in the patristic era, at the Reformation, during the Enlightenment, and in the nineteenth century. That will bring us to consider the Reformation/Evangelical view today, including the questions raised by historians, scientists, and by hermeneutics. The Wesleyan position in all this will then be explored more specifically, including what has been called ‘the Wesleyan Quadrilateral’ and how that should be properly understood.

Due to the depth of the content, it will require attending both one-hour webinars to cover all the material for this subject. When you register, select which date(s) you will be attending.

If you cannot attend one of the live events, you will receive a link to the recording within 48-72 hours as long as you are registered for that particular webinar session.
You can choose to attend one or more of the following webinars.
