The Good, the True, and the Beautiful
Posted On May 08, 2017
Dr. Stephen Nichols explains why the college’s curriculum is shaped by the good, the true, and the beautiful.
When we think of the good, the true, and the beautiful we often think of Plato. It was Plato who told us that that triad and the pursuit of that triad is the noble life or the good life. When we think of those terms though, we really should be thinking about Scripture. Just consider this for a moment, do a search of “the good,” or words related to ethics, justice, or righteousness. Or think of words related to “true” and “truth,” or words related to beauty, that which is pure, or that which is lovely. These words and these concepts spill all over the pages of Scripture. They are central to who God is, and they are central to His work and to His will. So it should come as no surprise that these words are crucial to us at Reformation Bible College. These words, these concepts of the good, the true, and the beautiful shape our curriculum. We want our students to be grounded in ethics, to pursue that which is true, that which is certain. And we also want them to pursue that which is beautiful, that which has excellence. We don’t want our students to be pursuing the trivial and the temporary, we want our students to pursue the profound and the permanent. All so that the good, the true, and the beautiful shapes the curriculum here at Reformation Bible College.
