In this minisode we examine what Arminius wrote concerning the knowledge of God with a specific focus on foreknowledge. To do this we will be reading through Private Disputation 17: “On The Understanding of God.” This episode will be the first in a three podcast series that will culminate in a full analysis of whether or not Open Theism could truly be called “Arminian.” It should be pretty clear after listening through this minisode that it shouldn’t be. Arminius has a very strong doctrine of Omniscience that is presented in this disputation. He also touches on the doctrine of “Middle Knowledge” and we get some help from Keith Stanglin and Thomas McCall from their book “Jacob Arminius: Theologian of Grace.”
