The World and The Age, Part 1

#0817 – March 31, 2013

The opening of this series handles introductory material, in particular a reminder that, as God moved holy men to write His Word, they did so with their own language and vocabulary. Having established this, the teaching focuses on the word kosmos, usually translated “world”. This word is used not of the planet, but of the order, the systems of the world. At times, particularly in the writings of John, it carries the further implication that these systems are basically evil.

The remainder of the teaching is devoted to explaining why the world is a place that, in its most basic purposes, is opposed to the purposes of God. [Tom Burke]
