In this minisode we will start looking at the views of Jacob Arminius on the Doctrine of Divine Providence. To help begin this investigation we read "Disputation 28: On the Providence of God" from the complete works of Jacob Arminius. After reading through the disputation there is a brief analysis of the disputation with help from Roger Olson, Keith Stanglin, and Thomas McCall. This minisode will be followed up by our next full episode that will be all about the doctrine of Divine Providence that will be released in early May. Please subscribe!

In this minisode we will be looking at the life of the Arminian pastor, statesman, and theologian: Johannes (Jan) Wtenbogaert. We will follow his life from his birth in Utrecht, his close friendship with Jacob Arminius, his studies at Geneva under Beza, his involvement in the Arminian controversy, his authorship of the Remonstrance of 1610, his exile to Belgium and France, and his death in the Hague at the age of eighty-seven. All the while we will be looking at background information on the Dutch Revolt, Arminian Controversy, and the Dutch Reformation. Sit back and join us for the adventures of Wtenbogaert.
