.Old Testament Studies

Dr. Utley has provided his Bible study material in several media formats.

Most of the videos were done when Dr. Utley has been pastor or interim pastor.

The audio lessons are longer and more detailed. Most of them were done at Trinity Baptist Church in Lubbock, Texas between 1976-1985.

The written commentaries were mostly done while Dr. Utley was Professor of Hermeneutics at East Texas Baptist University between 1987-2003. He finished the whole Bible in 2019. They represent his latest theological thoughts.

Biblical interpretation Seminar

Biblical interpretation is a rational and spiritual process that attempts to understand an ancient inspired writer in such a way that the message from God may be understood and applied in our day.

We must be consistent and fair to the text and not be influenced by our personal or denominational biases. We are all historically conditioned. None of us are objective, neutral interpreters. This seminar offers a careful rational process containing four interpretive principles structured to help us overcome our biases.

First Principle

The first principle is to note the historical setting in which a biblical book was written and the particular historical occasion for its authorship (or when it was edited). The original author had a purpose and a message to communicate. The text cannot mean something to us that it never meant to the original, ancient, inspired author. His intent—not our historical, emotional, cultural, personal or denominational need—is the key.

Second Principle

The second principle is to identify the literary units. Every biblical book is a unified document. Interpreters have no right to isolate one aspect of truth by excluding others. Therefore, we must strive to understand the purpose of the whole biblical book before we interpret the individual literary units. The individual parts—chapters, paragraphs, or verses—cannot mean what the whole unit does not mean.

Third Principle

The third principle is to read the Bible in different translations in order to grasp the widest possible range of meaning (semantic field) that biblical words or phrases may have. Often a phrase or word can be understood in several ways.

Fourth Principle

The fourth principle is to note the literary genre. Original inspired authors chose to record their messages in different forms (e.g., historical narrative, historical drama, poetry, prophecy, gospel [parable], letter, apocalyptic). These different forms have special keys to interpretation (see Gordon Fee and Doug Stuart, How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth, D. Brent Sandy and Ronald L. Giese, Jr., Cracking Old Testament Codes, or Robert Stein, Playing by the Rules).

Seminaries and Colleges:

Whitefield Theological Seminary
WTS was developed during a six year period of research in the field of higher education. During the research, various academic and practical programs were evaluated. The result was the birth of Whitefield Theological Seminary in 1980. It offers graduate degrees in theological studies, as well as postgraduate degrees such as Ph.D and Th.D. The seminary is committed to the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms (1647). Graduates include Dr. RC Sproul, Dr. RC Sproul Jr., Dr. Greg Bahnsen, Dr. Nigel Lee, Dr. Kenneth Gentry and Dr. George Grant. Soon to be released is Whitefield Media.

Reformed Theological Seminary
In less than thirty years RTS became one of the ten largest seminaries in the United States with an enrollment of approximately 1900 on three campuses, or approximately two per cent of the total enrollment in theological education in the United States and Canada. RTS has become the leading evangelical seminary in the southeastern United States.

Log College and Seminary
Originally established as The North American Reformed Seminary in 2008, The Log College & Seminary seeks to continue the mission, vision, and values of the original Log College and expand its reach as the twenty-first century continuation of this historic institution.  Completely free, completely online, and completely Reformed, LCS offers undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees implementing the old Puritan apprenticeship model for ministry preparation.  An ARTS affiliate institution, LCS affirms the Westminster Standards and is one of only a few seminaries to offer a program in nouthetic counseling.

Westminster Theological Seminary
Westminster Theological Seminary prepares leaders for ministry, developing graduates with a depth of understanding of God’s Word and a heartfelt desire to use that knowledge in God’s service. A Westminster education starts with the Bible. Grounded in the Reformed tradition, Westminster teaches that the Christian religion is true, and that in-depth study of the Bible and its historical contexts will reveal this truth, building a bedrock foundation for Christian ministry.

Covenant Theological Seminary
At Covenant, our purpose is to train servants of the triune God. We seek to help you sharpen your mind, develop the skills entrusted to you, and be changed by the transforming grace of God. Covenant Seminary is the place to dig deep into the Scriptures and to prepare for the overflow of ministry that results from a grateful heart. With the Apostle Paul, we “pray that you being rooted and established in love may … grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ” (Ephesians 3:17-18). We invite you to study with us and to come to know the Covenant Seminary community as a place to nurture relationships that will prepare you, by God’s grace, to change the world. As a community of faculty, staff, and students, our goal is to see God’s servants trained for a lifetime of ministry.

City Seminary of Sacramento
The goals of City Seminary of Sacramento are twofold; to provide a classical theological seminary education for ministerial candidates, and to offer continuing theological education for those already active in the ministry.

Northwest Theological Seminary
Northwest Theological Seminary is the culmination of a concerted effort to bring a new Reformed theological seminary to the Pacific Northwest. The specific emphases is biblical theology in the tradition of Geerhardus Vos; presuppositional apologetics in the tradition of Cornelius Van Til; and orthodox confessionalism in the classic Calvinistic tradition.

Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary
Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary is passionately committed to the authority of Scripture. Now in its 15th year, GPTS has maintained its identity as an Old School Presbyterian seminary. Recognizing that fewer men who graduate from the College or University are prepared for a classical seminary education, we have introduced our Propædeutic, or foundations, year. During this year, in addition to the Bible Survey courses, Introduction to Reformed Theology, and the beginning Greek and Hebrew courses, we teach Logic, Rhetoric, and the History of Philosophy. These courses enable men to profit more fully from the remainder of our curriculum. They also train our students to be more careful thinkers and articulate speakers.

Knox Theological Seminary
Knox has forged an unusually effective blend of strong academics and practical ministry to thoroughly prepare leaders of the 21st century. Our vision for ministry emphasizes the application of true, biblical Christianity to all aspects of our culture and our world. We equip you in a personal, mentoring environment to have a real impact in both the church and the world….except that they have jettisoned the Westminster Confession and are no longer truly Reformed.

Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary was born in May of 1995, with classes officially commencing in August, 1995. Students of the Heritage Netherlands Reformed Congregations and the Free Reformed Churches attend for their theological training; students outside of these denominations are accepted on the basis of adherence to the Three Forms of Unity or the Westminster Standards, and meeting the basic admissions requirements. Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary is distinctive because of its Reformed, experiential emphasis and its academy model of education. Ministry in the church of Jesus Christ—whether it be preaching, teaching, counseling, or administration—must be theologically informed. Therefore, our seminary strives to fully equip students for a variety of forms of gospel ministry, always remembering that the Holy Spirit’s unction and blessing is requisite to make men “able ministers of the New Testament.”

Mid-America Reformed Seminary
Mid-America’s mission is to prepare pastors as faithful servants of the Word and sacrament in the heritage of Reformed and Presbyterian Churches. Mid-America’s curriculum is calculated to assist in the intellectual and spiritual development of our students. We believe a thorough knowledge of, and submission to God’s Word, together with a solid grounding in its essential doctrines, is requisite to a God-glorifying and fruitful ministry.

Redeemer College
At Redeemer, you will find that we are a very supportive community, dedicated to your academic excellence and spiritual growth. Choose to experience a university environment rooted in a Christian perspective, and committed to helping you develop your unique gifts and discover all that God created you to be. With 70 different majors and minors to choose from, a dynamic campus life, and many opportunities to serve in the community, you will be equipped with the education and experience you need to positively impact our world.

Calvin Theological Seminary
All education at Calvin Theological Seminary is grounded in Scripture and unified in a Reformed theological perspective.

Covenant College
We are a community committed to the Bible as the inerrant Word of God, and everything we do is grounded in our Reformed theology and worldview.

Geneva College
Geneva College provides an array of academic options and opportunities rooted in liberal arts and science. Professors with wide-ranging experience and expertise will expand your mind, challenging you to learn more about yourself and the world around you. Of course we offer strong academics and plenty of fun activities to enhance the classroom experience, but we never lose sight of our mission to provide Christ-centered education.
