  1. The Savoy Platform 1658 Examining a Puritan document Puritanism: History and Theology

  2. Examining a Puritan document • Read carefully what it says • Notice what it DOESN’T say • Notice the date… think about the historical context • Draw conclusions on the TYPE of church that it is formulating Puritanism: History and Theology

  3. Jesus is the head of the church • Authority (King Jesus…and not King Charles!) • The Word of God is supreme (and not the Pope!) • Obedience to the instructions of the Word (and not the laws of the land?) Puritanism: History and Theology

  4. The calling of a Puritan minister • Called by Christ • Called by church • Set apart • Declare the word of God • public worship • Authority to rule…. A king Puritanism: History and Theology

  5. Types of leadership • Pastors • Teachers • Elders • Deacons Puritanism: History and Theology

  6. Leadership in the church • Appointment of leaders by the Holy Spirit • Through fasting and prayer • Through the Laying on of hands • Through a)“suffrage” b) “acceptation” and c) “separation unto prayer” Puritanism: History and Theology

  7. Notes 1 • Note the Calvinism of Article 2 (“Called out of the world…given to him by his father”) • What about the Holy Spirit in relation to appointments? • “Suffrage” (Art 11) They emphasise Acts 1 (casting lots) but not Acts 13 (“Set apart Paul and Barnabas” Puritanism: History and Theology

  8. Notes 2 • Why no mention of “bishops” (“overseers”)? • Are pastors, teachers etc offices or functions? • What about apostles, prophets and evangelists? Puritanism: History and Theology
