Reaffirming Jesus’ Crucifixion: Insights from Muslim Scholars by Rudolph P. Boshoff

For centuries, the Qur’an has been interpreted to deny the crucifixion of Jesus, contradicting the New Testament's account. The key verse often cited is from Surah An-Nisa (4:157): "And [for] their saying, 'Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah.' And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are [...]

Dangers of the Hyper Grace Gospel by Rudolph P. Boshoff

Hyper grace theology, also known as "ultra grace" or "extreme grace," is a theological perspective that emphasizes an exaggerated understanding of God's grace to the extent that it may be seen as diminishing the importance of repentance, holiness, and righteous living. The term "hyper-grace" refers to a theological perspective that emphasizes an extreme or imbalanced view of God's grace. It often suggests that once a person is saved, they are exempt from the need for [...]

A Quick Synopsis of the first Seven Ecumenical Church Councils.

“City (Year) Decision". 1. Nicea (325) Rejected Arianism (the Son of God was the first creation of God the Father) and affirmed that the Son of God is of the same essence (homoousion) as the Father. Wrote the Nicene Creed. 2. Constantinople (381)  Rejected the teachings of the Macedonians, who denied the deity of the Holy Spirit. Expanded the Nicene Creed. 3.

An Outline of the New Testament Testimony to the Deity of Christ by Murray J. Harris.

This outline does not purport to be in any sense an exhaustive analysis of the NT witness to Christ's deity. Rather, it is a sketch of one approach rather than a traditional approach to this theme. Other complementary or supplementary approaches abound, such as the creative treatment of Jesus' implicit claim to deity in his parables by P. B. Payne or R. T. France's documentation from the Synoptic Gospels of Jesus' assumption of the role of Yahweh (Jesus 150-59). For a [...]

Jesus Isn’t God because He has a God? (John 20:17) by Rudolph P. Boshoff.

Recently, I viewed a YouTube clip of Dale Tuggy that says that Jesus was not God but merely a man because He referred to Himself as having a God.[1] Let me say that this passage shows John's absolute brilliance. Now, let me read the passage for you. Here is the passage he refers to:  “Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my [...]

Looking at Shabir Yusuf’s “Trinitarian Reality” by Rudolph P. Boshoff.

It is no secret that most Christians do not spend much time considering the Doctrine of the Trinity as a peculiar point of interest, nor do we spend much time trying to examine its implications and legitimacy. Well, I hope to give some glimmer of proximity when I speak and write on this topic, and hopefully, this is precisely what I am accomplishing in this article.  In a recent clip, it seems like Shabir’s objection starts [...]

Exploring Theological Personality: Classical Theism vs. Theistic Personalism by Rudolph P. Boshoff

In recent theological discussions, the concepts of classical theism and theistic personalism have gained prominence. Coined by Brian Davies in his book on the philosophy of religion, these terms represent contrasting views on the nature of God within Christian theology. What are some of the distinctions between classical theism and theistic personality? I will briefly sum up and examine their historical roots, key proponents, and the implications of their divergent perspectives. Classical theism traces its [...]

Debunking Divine Simplicity: A discussion between Mullins and Craig by Rudolph P. Boshoff

In a recent discussion between theologians Mullins and Craig, the topic of divine simplicity took center stage. Mullins emphasized the growing interest in this stronger doctrine, asserting that it's the theological concept du jour. The conversation delved into whether there is any biblical evidence supporting this idea. Divine simplicity posits that God lacks any composition or distinct parts. Craig, however, firmly asserts that there is no biblical foundation for this stronger doctrine. In fact, he [...]
