Tomorrow evening 2/7 at 7:30pm EST we hold the third lecture of a 10-week series on the Biblical basis for the theology we call the Providential Preservation of Scripture. Lecture 3 is part 2 of a study on that much maligned portion of Scripture found in Psalm 12:6-7, the passage we were informed of by Dr. Ward et al, does not teach Scripture’s providential preservation. Indeed, according to contemporary evangelical scholarship no one can find a single scholar who argues that this passage teaches Scripture’s providential preservation. Last week we examined syntactical issues of Hebrew gender and number discontinuity. Tomorrow evening, we will consider the testimony of English versions and how this passage was translated. Don’t miss the discussion of Psalm 12 to the doctrine of providential preservation tomorrow evening, 2/7, 7:30 EST.
Series 2, Lecture 3: Does Psalm 12:6-7 teach Scripture’s Providential Preservation considered throughout the Reformation Era English Bible Tradition.
