The kingdom of David apparently ended the Babylonian invasion. As a centralized organization, the kingdom ceased to exist temporarily, but, as a body, that is, how people survived, both in exile and in its spread across the world in the following centuries (Diaspora). With the advent of Jesus Christ, the kingdom began to revive and, in the millennium, will have its fullness.

The lie. - Challenge for theologians. 3 Persons in the Godhead? Would this be? Make sure ...
But to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things and for whom we live; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we by him. 1 Corinthians 8: 6. One Lord, one faith, one baptism; Ephesians 4: 5. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 2: 5. Now a mediator is not of one, but God is one. Galatians 3:20. There is one body and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; Ephesians 4: 4. He that descended is the same also that ascended far above all the heavens to fill all things. Ephesians 4:10. No one has ascended into heaven but he that came down from heaven, the Son of man which is in heaven. John 3:13. Jesus answered them, Verily, verily I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. John 8:58 The Trinitarian deceive you. What seems to lie? To say that Jesus has two natures? Or who acts in the place of Jesus today is a 3rd person separated from Him? They say they are the majority. We are in God ... Be with the truth is that we are the majority. We have nothing to fear. It is time to study the Bible. You search the Scriptures, because ye think ye have eternal life, and they are they which testify of me; John 5:39. Want to take Jesus's Plan of Salvation, assigning to another this right. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I with them. Matthew 18:20. I will not leave you orphans; come to you. John 14:18. Father, those you have given me I want, where I am, they also may be with me, that they may see my glory that you gave me; because you loved me before the foundation of the world. John 17:24. God has never been seen by someone. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he said. John 1:18. That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto your knowledge in the spirit of wisdom and revelation; Ephesians 1:17. I left the Father and have come into the world; again, I leave the world and go to the Father. John 16:28. Therefore, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ, Ephesians 3: 4. There is none who understands; There is none that seeketh after God. Romans 3:11. Because I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, Philippians 1:19. You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if the Spirit of God dwell in you. But if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. Romans 8: 9. Searching what, or what time of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ were to come, and the glory that should follow them. 1 Peter 1:11. Why not accept that Jesus has a dual nature. (Divine - Human). He is the humanity of God in our favor. Because we do not accept single person? Born of woman.
Why not accept that the Holy Spirit is a Divine attribute? For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world his eternal power and his divine nature, being understood and clearly seen from what has been made, so that men are without excuse; Romans 1:20. He proceeds from the Father and the Son. (Father and the Lamb), (Jehovah and Adonai). For in him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead; Colossians 2: 9. And having said this, he breathed on them and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit. John 20:22. God through the Spirit takes up the entire universe.
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and in truth. John 4:24. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit; For the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. 1 Corinthians 2:10. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. Romans 8:14. Because we are collectively fooled by various religions with the concept of trinity? (3 Deities). Where did this? See bible. Accept what is clear. If in doubt do not go. Cheap distorted, bad interpreted or translated can not set nosa faith. Study. Demand of the Trinitarians this level of presentation. Taste the spirit.

Hey, Vossian friends. I set up a Twitter account to share some golden nuggets of what Vos had to say. It's @biblicalvosisms. If you feel up to it, follow that account and retweet things. And if you mention that account in a Vos quote, I'll retweet it (if I feel up to it 😉). Let's spread this great biblical wisdom together!

We are at #5 in our group. There was some discussion on the tree of life and Gen 3:22. What does it mean that "he must not reach out, take from the tree of life, eat, and live forever?" Looking at the trees as sacraments then why would the unworthy partaker live forever?

The Vos Group is great, we are all (in our group) loving it!

Hey there Vos Group! I am loving this book, and am thankful that one of my pastors plans on meeting me to chat about it every couple of weeks or so. May our Father in heaven help us all to know him and make him known even more because of this study and fellowship.

Hey fellow members of the Vos Group,
I've been listening to the Vos group podcasts since the beginning, and have been listening to CTC pretty much from the beginning. Not being raised OPC, or PCA most of what I've learned through the program has been new to me. Loved reading "Jesus on Every Page", Nancy Guthrie's "Seeing Jesus in the OT" series, both of which were introduced to me through the podcast and have helped to inform me on the nature of biblical theology. So, um... I'm in Japan and as soon as I heard about the group I wanted to get the book. Long story short, I ran into a missionary who teaches at a local university who was giving away his books(looking to retire in the next few years). I happened to find this book in his shelves. What a blessing! $45 saved (ordering book plus international shipping).
Truth be told, I gotta read slowly because I'm a bit out of my depth with some of Vos' writing style. And though I'm surrounded by a decent size community of strong Christians (a rarity in Japan), very few hold to at least a reformed soteriology. I am a part of a local Japanese baptist church (it's all Japanese, though the pastor speaks English). In short, in this particular area of Biblical Theology, I'd be very appreciative of the support of others in furthering my understanding of this volume. The introduction alone was worth the read. Blessings, and look forward to hearing from you all.

Available now, new edition. 


First of all, thanks so much for creating this group. It has been extremely helpful so far! I’ve been chewing on the first two chapters and I wanted to get some input on one of Vos’ points from Ch.1:

“Biblical Theology imparts new life and freshness to the truth by showing it to us in its original historical setting. The Bible is not a dogmatic handbook but a historical book full of dramatic interest. Familiarity with the history of revelation will enable us to utilize all of this dramatic interest.” Vos, pg. 17(c)

Dr. Tipton comments, “the Bible is dogmatic truth, but it also reveals something that you not only believe and confess, but something in which you participate! … It’s a book of dramatic interest that has a redemptive concern, so that you confess the truths of Scripture and by virtue of your union with Christ you participate in the redemptive reality revealed in the Scripture. And that imparts, as Vos would say, ‘new life and freshness to the truth.’”

This concept of confessing/participating in God’s revelation by virtue of my union with Christ is really exciting to me!

My question is: How (or why) does familiarity with the history of revelation (BT?) enable one to utilize all of this dramatic interest contained in Scripture? And does anyone have any practical suggestions or advice for incorporating this into our “devotional” readings of Scripture?

Hello; During the discussion on the Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil Dr. Tipton pointed out that Adam was physically as the serpent tempted Eve.  Not that I disagree, I just wondered what biblical precedent we have that leads us to this (I assume correct) assumption.  Can anyone offer any passages that may  help me understand this idea?
