Non-Biblical Literature & the Bible [12-Part Blog Series by Doug Van Dorn]


Douglas Van Dorn
Douglas Van Dorn

Over at The Decablog, Pastor Doug Van Dorn finished up his series Non-Biblical Literature and the Bible.

Here is the series overview:

When I was first asked to do this series, it’s focus was to be only on Ancient Near Eastern [ANE] Literature and the Bible. But then I started thinking. Because there is an aversion that many have not only to ANE stuff, but even to ancient books closer to the Christian home, perhaps something more basic and broad would be more helpful.

So this is going to be a series of posts on non-biblical literature and how to think, well, “biblically” about it. It will focus on ancient literature, with individual posts given to the The_Good_The_Bad_and_The_UglyApocrypha, the Pseudepigrapha, other Second Temple Literature (Dead Sea Scrolls, Josephus and Philo, Mishna, Targums), the Apostolic Fathers, some of the Church Fathers, Gnostic Texts, Ancient Near Eastern Literature, and relevant Ancient World Literature (Part I and Part II).

Don’t know what a lot of this even is? Have no idea why you should care? Never fear. These posts will help give you some answers.

The final post (an annotated bibliography) to lead you to some good sources to help you begin your adventure. As this is a blog, we can only do the most basic of overviews. This is my attempt to whet your appetite to a whole world you never knew existed. And what an amazing world it is: The good, the bad, and the ugly!

Here is the series:

  1. Introduction Part I (The Bible)
  2. Introduction Part II (Objections and Suggestions)
  3. The Apocrypha
  4. The Pseudepigrapha
  5. Other Second Temple Literature (Dead Sea Scrolls, Josephus and Philo, Mishna, Targums)
  6. Apostolic Fathers
  7. Church Fathers
  8. Gnostic Texts
  9. Ancient Near Eastern Literature
  10. World Literature Part I, Part II

What is the Relationship of Anabaptists to Baptists? [Ask A Reformed Baptist]

Drowning of [Anabaptist] Maria von Monjou, 1552.
Drowning of [Anabaptist] Maria von Monjou, 1552.
A common question that comes up is, “What is the relationship of Anabaptists to Baptists?”

Paedobaptists will tell you Baptists are Anabaptists. and it doesn’t help  that some Arminian Dispensational (SBC) Baptists will trace their roots to Anabaptists.

On a surface-level view it would be easy to think they are one and the same – but a simple look at history and doctrine reveals otherwise.

Phil Johnson
Phil Johnson

From Phil Johnson’s, “The Anabaptists“:

Many Anabaptist ideas made invaluable contributions to the Reformation. For example, these five tenets might be identified as Anabaptist distinctives:

Sola Scriptura—Anabaptists were sometimes more consistent than the Magisterial Reformers in their insistence on biblical authority for certain practices in matters of church polity and worship.

Separation of Church and State—Anabaptists correctly saw the church as the assembly of the redeemed, antithetical to the world and sometimes antagonistic to society as a whole. For this reason they advocated separation of church and state.

Freedom of Conscience—because of the Anabaptists’ convictions about the role of the secular state, they believed that the ultimate remedy for heresy was excommunication. They steadfastly opposed the persecution that was so characteristic of their age. They denied that the state had a right to punish or execute anyone for religious beliefs or teachings. This was a revolutionary notion in the Reformation era.

Believers’ Baptism—The anabaptists were the among the first to point out the lack of explicit biblical support for infant baptism. Most of them made no issue of the mode of baptism, and practiced affusion (sprinkling), however, so they were not true baptists in the modern sense of the word.

Holiness of Life—Anabaptists gave much emphasis to spiritual experience, practical righteousness, and obedience to divine standards. They had no tolerance for those who claimed to be justified by faith while living unfaithful lives. Anabaptists pointed out that Scripture says, “Faith without works is dead” (Jas. 2:20).

On most of those points we would strongly agree with the Anabaptists’ thrust (though not necessarily with the extreme conclusions they sometimes came to).

Nevertheless, there is very good reason to approach the Anabaptist movement with a healthy dose of caution. While acknowledging our very real debt to the Anabaptists on the matters enumerated above, we must also recognize an unhealthy tendency in Anabaptist doctrine: Anabaptists rejected the Reformed understanding of justification by faith alone. They denied the forensic nature of justification and insisted that the only ground on which sinners can be acceptable to God is a “real” righteousness wrought within the justified person.

For further reading on Anabaptist theology see the recommended resources (links) on Phil Johnson’s site.

Also at Phil Johnson’s is Chris Traffanstedt’s piece, “A Primer on Baptist History: The True Baptist Trail“:

Burning of [Anabaptist] Anneken Hendriks, Amsterdam, 1571.

Anabaptist Influence

Most Baptists are fooled into thinking that we come from the Anabaptists just because the word “baptist” is found in their name. But we must use great caution here. We must explore who the Anabaptists really were and ask the all-important question: Are they truly representative of Baptist beliefs?Who are these people called “Anabaptist”? This group refers to a community of rebels during the Reformation period; they were considered to be the radical wing of the Reformation. Even within this group there were various views and camps. Two main separate camps can be identified: the “revolutionary Anabaptist” and the “evangelical Anabaptist.”[11] We really do not want to spend too much time on the revolutionary group for they hardly reflect a biblical approach to Christianity. They actually took on the form of a cult, holding to an extreme mystical experiential view and believing their leaders to be prophets (future-tellers). They were also quick to use violence to get their way.However, the “evangelical” Anabaptists were a movement of a different type. And it is from this group that many say the Baptist movement was born. Thus, we need to take some time to examine them. This group, first of all, rejected the orthodox Christian view of sin. Instead of holding to sin as a bondage both of the nature and actions of mankind, they held that sin was “a loss of capacity or a serious sickness.”[12] The Anabaptists, in following Rome’s view of justification, held that God makes us righteous and then accepts us on the basis of our righteousness. They also believed that Christ did not take His flesh from Mary but held to a heavenly origin for His flesh. When it came to the world, the Anabaptists believe we were to totally separate ourselves from it (although they did dip into it with a zealous evangelism on occasion). The Anabaptists rejected infant baptism and held to believer’s baptism, but their mode for the most part was sprinkling, not pouring or immersion. Their view of interpreting Scripture was that of just strict imitation which led to large movements of legalism.[13]When we look at the Anabaptists we must agree that there are some similarities with the early General Baptists, but overall these similarities are slight and not always relational. In the end, we must come to say that this group of Christians does not reflect the historical teaching of the Baptists. The large portion of Baptist history shows us that Baptists held to a strong position on sin, both in our nature and in our actions, not as just some mere sickness. Baptists have also held to a belief in the virgin birth and see that this is what points to the doctrine of the God-Man, not just some heavenly illusion. As well, Baptists have held strongly to the Reformation’s recovery of justification – that it is based upon Christ’s righteousness alone and not our righteousness because we have none. And finally, Baptists have always seen that the Scriptures are to be studied and applied to everyday life through the power of the Holy Spirit and are not to be followed just in blind imitation or by a leap of faith. So we must clearly reject, as history does, that the Baptist origins flow from the Anabaptists.

The fact of history is that three “Believer’s-Only” groups arose independently of each other and with a few similarities, but even more dissimilarities. The Continental Anabaptists (who did not immerse), the English General Baptists, and the English Particular Baptists.

So if Baptists are not the heirs to the Anabaptists, who are? The Amish, The Brethren, and the Mennonites.

In 2006 the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and in 2008 the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) apologized for the Lutheran persecution of Anabaptists. To whom did they apologize? SBC, or any Baptist group? No. They apologized to Mennonites. (see ELCA and LWF)

I’ll end with a quote from Erroll Hulse,

As Professors James McGoldrick [Baptist Successionism: A Crucial Question in Baptist History] and Michael Haykin [Kiffin, Knollys, & Keach: Rediscovering English Baptist Heritage] have shown, historical evidence is lacking to prove a connection between the Continental Anabaptists of the sixteenth century and the English Baptists.

Upcoming Book: ‘The Baptist Story: From English Sect to Global Movement’ by Haykin, Finn, & Chute

Baptist Story Book

The Baptist Story: From English Sect to Global Movement
by Anthony L. Chute, Nathan A. Finn, Michael A. G. Haykin


The Baptist Story is a narrative history of a diverse group of people spanning over four centuries, living among distinct cultures on separate continents, while finding their common identity in Christ and expressing their faith as Baptists. Baptist historians Anthony Chute, Nathan Finn, and Michael Haykin highlight the Baptist transition from a despised sect to a movement of global influence. Each chapter includes stories of people who made this history so fascinating. Although the emphasis is on the English-speaking world, The Baptist Story integrates stories of non-English speaking Baptists, ethnic minorities, women, and minority theological traditions, all within the context of historic, orthodox Christianity.

This volume provides more than just the essential events and necessary names to convey the grand history. It also addresses questions that students of Baptist history frequently ask, includes prayers and hymns of those who experienced hope and heartbreak, and directs the reader’s attention to the mission of the church as a whole. Written with an irenic tone and illustrated with photographs in every chapter, The Baptist Story is ideally suited for graduate or undergraduate courses, as well as group study in the local church.

Rediscovering the Church Fathers Who They Were and How They Shaped the Church by Michael Haykin
Rediscovering the Church Fathers: Who They Were and How They Shaped the Church

On episode 62 of our interview podcast we are replaying an interview from ReformedCast. Why? Because ReformedCast has now, “discontinu[ed] operations effective June 15, 2014. All MP3s will be removed at that time.”

We didn’t want these resources to disappear off the Internet so we asked the ReformedCast host, Scott Oakland, if we could republish the interviews he conducted over the past several years that fit our site/podcast scope. He graciously agreed! So, here is another, fitting, replay (we’ll add onto these every now and then throughout the year.)


From his August 8, 2011 post on this interview:

We will be joined by Dr. Michael A.G. Haykin, the author of “Rediscovering the Church Fathers: Who They Were and How They Shaped the Church.” Dr. Haykin is currently Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has authored The Spirit of God: The Exegesis of 1 and 2 Corinthians in the Pneumatomachian Controversy of the Fourth Century, Kiffin, Knollys and Keach: Rediscovering Our English Baptist Heritage, At the Pure Fountain of Thy Word’: Andrew Fuller as an ApologistJonathan Edwards: The Holy Spirit in Revival, and The God Who Draws Near: An Introduction to Biblical Spirituality. Dr. Haykin received his B.A. from the University of Toronto, an M.Rel. from Wycliffe College and Univ. of Toronto; Th.D., Wycliffe College and Univ. of Toronto.

Top Four Recommended Books on Baptism? Haykin Answers

Dr. Michael Haykin
Dr. Michael Haykin

Dr. Michael Haykin’s answer to, “If you were asked to pick four books on baptism, what would they be?”:

Well, first of all David Kingdon, Children of Abraham: A Reformed Baptist View of Baptism, The Covenant, and Children (Haywards Heath, Sussex: Carey Publications, 1973). It is out of print, but it the best twentieth-century study of baptism from a Reformed and Baptist perspective.


Paul K. Jewett, Infant Baptism and the Covenant of Grace (Grand Rapids: William B. Eerdmans Publ. Co., 1978) is a similar study and also well worth reading. […] There are older works, by authors like Alexander Carson, that are worthwhile, but these two are the best from the past century.


Then, for historical discussions of early Christian baptism I would recommend two small books: Hendrick F. Stander and Johannes P. Louw, Baptism in the Early Church (Leeds: Reformation Today Trust and the Association of Reformed Baptist Churches, 2004) is a gem,


And F.M. Buhler, Baptism: Three Aspects (Dundas, Ontario: Joshua Press, 2004) a much-overlooked piece that helpfully deals with the archaeological evidence pertaining to early Christian baptismal practice.

The Theology of John Calvin: Free Video Lectures [Mark Sarver]

John Calvin
John Calvin

More free video lectures from Reformed Baptist Seminary:

If Martin Luther was the catalyst of the Protestant Reformation, John Calvin was its consolidator. Calvin was both a commentator and also a systematic theologian. J. I. Packer has rightly appraised Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion (1536-1559) as “one of the wonders of the spiritual world–the world of doxology and devotion, of discipleship and discipline, of Word-through-Spirit illumination and transformation of individuals, of the Christ-centered mind and the Christ-honoring heart.” 


In the thirteen lectures below, historical theologian and pastor Mark Sarver, provides a sketch of Calvin’s life and labors as well as a survey of some of Calvin’s greatest theological contributions. 


These lectures constitute a portion of the lecture material for Reformed Baptist Seminary‘s course “Reformation Church.” For more information about taking the course for credit or just auditing the lectures, contact me at And enjoy!

Justin Taylor continues:

Professor Haykin also has a new book due out soon: Patrick of Ireland: His Life and Impact (Christian Focus, 2014). This is part of a series of short biographies and analyses from the early church.

Steve Weaver gives some more details on this series:

A new series of books featuring biographies of the early church fathers is being published by Christian Focus Publications of the United Kingdom. Noted Patristic scholar Michael A.G. Haykin is serving as the series editor. According to the publisher’s website:  ”this series relates the magnificent impact that these fathers of the early church made for our world today. They encountered challenges similar to ones that we face in our postmodern world, and they met them with extraordinary values that will encourage and inspire us today.”


Both these books are available in the UK. They will not be available in the US until May, but are available for pre-order now on Amazon:
