July 29 – August 1, 2019
Trinity Theological College, Level 4 Chapel, 490 Upper Bukit Timah Rd, Singapore 678093
Trinity Theological College will be holding its biennial Trinity Lectures in July.
This year’s topic: “St Paul on the Absence and Presence of Jesus.”
Christians believe that Jesus is present with them in the Spirit or through the spiritual realm.
This realm is often thought of in relation to a simple dualistic ontology, where reality is split into visible matter and invisible spirit. Since this invisible realm is always enveloping us, any talk of Jesus’ presence should be quite simple and straightforward.
Unfortunately, this notion does not give credit to the rich and profound teaching of the New Testament.
The fifth biennial Trinity Lectures addresses this topic so that believers may be enriched in our understanding of how Jesus is present with the body. The aim to help Christians walk as better witnesses of the faith.
This year’s speaker, Professor Markus Bockmuehl, the Dean Ireland’s Professor of Biblical Exegesis at Oxford University, a widely published New Testament scholar, is especially known for his research on Paul and Peter.
Date: Monday-Thursday, July 29-August 1, 2019, 7.30pm-9pm
