Unseen Realm 102

This is the second course of a two-course series where Dr. Heiser builds on the meta-narrative and supernatural concepts of Unseen Realm 101. He tackles those hard-to-understand verses and stories of the New Testament and shows you how they fit together in God’s bigger story. The course covers Chapters 22-42 of the The Unseen Realm: Recovering the supernatural Worldview of the Bible with the focus on examining the ancient context of Scripture and explaining how its supernatural worldview can help us grow in our understanding of God. Special attention is given to the following concepts:

  • Eschatological Son of Man
  • Believer's as sacred space
  • Cosmic geography in the Gospels
  • How Jesus' birth, life and ministry reverses the three rebellions
  • Spiritual warfare in light of the Great Commission

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Explain the supernatural-theological rationale in Israel's conquest of Canaan.
  • Discern how the divine council worldview provides a framework for the prophets’ ministry.
  • Explain the divine council context of Daniel 7 and the Son of Man and how that determines Christology and Old Testament Godhead theology.
  • Discern the cryptic nature of the ultimate mission of the Messiah in the first advent.
  • Describe how Christ's ministry targeted the three supernatural-human rebellions described in Genesis 1-11.
  • Explain how the Church, the Body of Christ, and its ordinances repurpose Old Testament concepts of sacred space, holy priesthood, and cosmic geography.
  • Discern how the divine council worldview impacts eschatology, the Day of the Lord, and the restoration of Eden on a new earth.
