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.

The introductory material is about worldview in general term, including its definition, necessity, elements, worldview in Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, and Humanities, the  structure of its justification, and  the distinctiveness of Christian worldview in special term. Since Christian theology in its dogmatic system is the substance of  the Christian worldview, students will be introduced, in this introductory part, to theology and its significance in building and shaping Christian worldview. The foundational role of the Holy Scripture for theology and worldview will also be explained in terms of its revelational characteristic in the context of its organic interrelationship with other organs of revelation, its infallibility, its historical reliability, its canonization, its interpretation, and its function as the epistemic principium for conveying the knowledge of God and creation. The knowledge of God, which is rooted in the Holy Scripture, as the substance of Christian understanding of all things, will be elaborated in terms of its possibility, its certainy, its content which is consisted of His existence, His being, His attributes: communicable and incommunicable, His Triunity,  His decrees, and His works of creation and providence, and its metaphysical and epistemic implications.The main thrust of the elaboration is on the knowledge of God that may lead to a deeper personal relationship with him for a better understanding and practice of his will.
