Redemptive-History Resource

I am happy to announce a new web source, Historia Salutis, for discussing the Bible and theology from a self-consciously reformed, redemptive-historical perspective in the tradition of the likes of Geerhardus Vos and Herman Ridderbos. In the first post, Camden Bucey explains the purpose of the blog and explanation of it subject matter:

Welcome to the latest addition to the Reformed Forum Network: Historia Salutis . This blog will be devoted to discussing topics in biblical theology in the tradition of Geerhardus Vos and Herman Ridderbos. I feel this will be a great addition to the content we deliver across the Reformed Forum and will generate interest from those wanting to study God’s plan of redemption through history.

What is Historia Salutis?

Broadly speaking, it is the history of God’s salvific activity for his people. Narrowly, it is the life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Given that Jesus’ work is the epitome of redemptive history, historia salutis is most often used in this narrow sense.

We’re planning to use this site to promote the study of the history of redemption. We will trace themes throughout Scripture, study protology, typology and eschatology, and provide links to useful materials throughout the web. Please subscribe to our feed in your RSS reader and comment away in order to provide helpful feedback.

This blog is part of the Reformed Forum, which is an excellent online resource for all things reformed. So far, I have read the post on Biblical Theology in the Psalms and Mountains in Redemptive-History (this article is especially helpful for those who heard my sermons from Micah 4). If these early articles are indicative of what is to come, then this should be exciting reading.
