SECTION II THE AGES AND DISPENSATIONS
These have been listed in various ways (cp. pp. 28-38).
In Philadelphia College of Bible we suggest the following:

SCRIPTURE AGE DISPENSATION
Gen. 1:28-3:6 Edenic Innocency
Gen. 3:7-8:14 Antediluvian Moral Responsibility (Conscience)
Gen. 8:15-11:26 Postdiluvian Human Rule (Government)
Gen 11:27-Ex. 18:27 Patriarchal Promise
Ex. 19 - Acts1 Israelitish Law
Acts 2 - Rev. 3 Church Grace
Rev. 4-19 Judgment Expectancy
Rev. 20:1-15; 21:9-22:5 Millennium or Kingdom Divine Rule (Christ's reign)


Under each AGE / DISPENSATION the following points will be noted:

1. The key personage(s)
2. The extent of the period
3. The general Scripture portion
4. The characteristic or state of man during its course
5. The special responsibility instituted by God
6. The failure of man under the test
7. The resultant judgment
8. The gracious intervention of God

The Lessons of the Ages will give successive proof:
        1.     That man is self-willed and unbelieving;
        2.     That, despite his boast of getting better and better, he is incorrigibly evil;
        3.     That he has failed under every conceivable test; and
        4.     That, apart from God's gracious provisions, he can never become righteous, never glorifying to God.
