Bible Term: Theology

At its simplest, theology is the study of God.

Specifically, Christian theology is a look at the elements of the Christian faith as revealed by Jesus and portrayed in the Bible.

Key verse about theology: “Then the Jews were perplexed. They said, ‘How did this man become learned [so versed in the Scriptures and theology] without formal training?'” (John 7:15, AMP).

A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 1,000-page website to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and many books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
