Blending the Discipleship Directive with Post-Flood Priorities, with Examples of Animals Fitted to Fill Earth’s Biomes

(ICR Back to Genesis Lecture Series, ACSI-2021-52995)

  • Dates: September 16 & 23, 2021 (2 Thursdays)

  • Time: 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.

  • Venue: Institute for Creation Research, 1806 Royal Lane, Dallas, Texas 75229 (Classroom A)

  • Credit: 1.0 ACSI-approved CEU (Bible or Educational)

  • Instructor: Dr. James J. S. Johnson (ACSI-credentialed CEU provider 2153)


This PowerPoint-facilitated course is an interdisciplinary course that shows how the “be-fruitful-multiply-and-fill-the-earth” Genesis Mandate (of Genesis 9:1-7) blends with the disciple-making Great Commission (of Matthew 28:18-20).

Course objectives

  • To analyze and appreciate how God has directed Christians to participate in both the Genesis Mandate (of Genesis 9:1-7) and the Great Commission (of Matthew 28:18-20)—this study is an expansion on a theme presented in Dr. Jim Johnson’s “Fulfilling the Genesis Mandate While Helping the Poor” and his “Survival of the Fitted: God’s Providential Programming”—in conjunction with a review of related Old Testament and New Testament Scriptures, which includes an amazing amount of diverse topics;

  • To compare relevant examples of Biblical (and some extra-biblical) history and geography, to better appreciate how God providentially orchestrates important details of both timing and location, as He sovereignly superintends—and teaches—human history according to His wise purposes, illustrating Rom. 8:28, Gen. 50:20, Eph. 3:20; Psalms 78:4-7 & 118:17; etc.

  • To illustrate how to blend teaching Biblical truth with the study of biome ecology & biogeography, in light of the history of the Great Commission;

  • To show how studying details in Biblical texts, with the philological microscopy of Greek and Hebrew word studies, can enhance and enrich Bible study, e.g., by clarifying rich details;

  • To illustrate the valuable variety of God’s many animals, with special attention to their displays of continuous environmental tracking (as part of how God has designed and bioengineered them to be fitted for filling different and changing habitats in different biomes).
