Dr. Dean is a much sought after Bible teacher both in the United States and overseas. He serves on the adjunct faculty of Faith Evangelical Seminary and is the Chairman of the Governing Board for Chafer Theological Seminary.

Dr. Dean trained for the ministry at Dallas Theological Seminary where he earned a Th.M. in Hebrew and Old Testament Studies and later returned to pursue a Ph.D. in theological studies with an emphasis in Historical Theology.

Passage: 1 Peter 1:17-19
Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 1 sec
What is the place of works in a person’s life and what are these works? Listen to this lesson to learn that while salvation is a free gift, works done by believers under the filling of the Holy Spirit are rewarded in eternity. Find out the different judgments awaiting the human race and how unbelievers are judged on the basis of their works at the Great White Throne judgment. Hear how Old Testament believers were justified. When life gets tough and we are under adversity, we need to focus on the end game and the rewards that God has planned for believers.

Passage: Matthew 20:20-28
Duration: 51 mins 49 secs
Is following Jesus the same as believing in Jesus? Listen to this lesson to learn the differences between salvation and the rewards that may be earned by believers. See that you can lose rewards but you can never lose your salvation once you believe in Christ. Learn the meaning of the two categories of inheritance and see that there are consequences for believers at the Judgment Seat of Christ who do not confess their sins and walk by means of the Holy Spirit.

Passage: 1 Peter 1:17-19
Duration: 1 hr 24 mins 36 secs

Why does Peter tell Christians to conduct their life in fear when other Scriptures tell us not to fear? Listen to this lesson to understand why fear of the Lord is an important motivator to live our life in the light of the Judgment Seat of Christ. See that if you walk by means of the Spirit you produce rewardable works instead of sinful deeds. Understand that our evaluation is designed to show what has eternal value and that this involves our relationship with God and learning the Word of God.
