We speak with Dr. Alan Shelby, Dean of LFBI, about the historical roots of a dispensational view of Scripture. Dr. Shelby emphasizes the key of right division in understanding the Bible, with Dispensationalism holding the right hermeneutic for a literal interpretation of the Scriptures. He highlights how Dispensationalism, which evaluates the truths of Scripture written to ourselves and others, differs from other methods of interpretation which require man-made constructions and misinterpretations of God's truth. He explores the early modern roots and heritage of current Dispensational thought, as well as the historical roots of Premillennialism (the return of Christ before the Millennium). He traces these roots back to the very disciples of the twelve apostles, marking the connection of a fellowship of believers through God's Word that has lasted through history.
