Dr. Yongbom Lee

My name is Yongbom Lee. I am originally from Seoul, South Korea, but I spent most of my adult life in the United States. I graduated from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI, USA for my B.A. in Ancient Civilizations and Biblical Studies (1999) and M.A. in Classical Greek (2001). I also graduated from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA, USA, for my M.Div. (2006), where I met my lovely wife. I received a Ph.D. in Theology from the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom (2010). I am married to Dr. Diana Dodson Lee, who is teaching in 2015–16 Spanish at Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA, USA. I am a pastor, a teacher, and a scholar. Studying and teaching the Bible always has been my passion and calling from God. I am grateful for the privilege to teach students at UPH as a theology lecturer in 2015–16. I am excited to study together God’s Word and see how it is going to transform all of us as we let the Spirit of God work in our lives.

A survey of the Old Testament that will trace its significant teachings with respect to their historical and cultural backgrounds. It will provide a historical perspective of the people of God in the OT. The formation of its canon and proofs of its historical integrity will be discussed in order to establish its authority as the Word of God. The main focus will be on the purpose of God for creating humanity, the event of the fall of Adam that resulted to sin and suffering, and the plan of salvation the LORD promised and accomplished in the history of Israel. The fulfillment of the promise in the New Testament will be introduced briefly in this study.

A study of the New Testament, tracing its teachings with respect to the historical and cultural backgrounds and literary genre. It will cover topics such as the reliability of NT documents, why there are four gospels, the different but not contradictory portraits of Jesus and his ministry culminating on the cross, the origin of the church and the theological and ethical issues it faced as presented in the book of Acts and the epistles. Implications of all these topics will be drawn for spiritual and professional life.
