Essentials of Reformed Doctrine: Lesson 19 (“Regeneration)

Essentials of Reformed Doctrine is a systematic doctrine class aimed at older teenagers, but adapted in Ireland for adults who want to learn all the doctrines of Christianity.

Lesson 19 is "Regeneration."

The main subjects covered in this Lesson are:

Part 1: Regeneration as the first step in the ordo salutis; the meaning and nature of regeneration (or the new birth); regeneration in the broader and narrower sense; the effects of regeneration.

Part 2: Regeneration as the sovereign work of God (against baptismal and decisional regeneration); the source of regeneration in the life of Jesus Christ.


The LRF runs an adult reformed doctrine class in which we work through the Essentials of Reformed Doctrine catechism booklet published by the PRCA. Below you will find the lesson outlines based on Lesson 16.

Each lesson outline comes as a handy PDF formatted to be printed as a single double-sided page with narrow margins.
