Theology Conference in Huntsville



One of our sister churches in Huntsville will be hosting a theology conference this weekend.

The speaker is Dr. Miles Van Pelt, professor of Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary, in Jackson, MS.  He will be showing how the story of the Bible is structured around covenants, and how the gospel is the theme that unites all of Scripture.

More conference information, from the host church, is below.  This conference will be held at Westminster Presbyterian Church, which you can locate by visiting their website:

PUTTING THE BIBLE BACK TOGETHER AGAIN 
with Dr. Miles Van Pelt

In this conference, we will work to answer two basic but fundamental questions:  
  • What is the Bible about?
  • How does the Bible Work? 
The good news is that the Bible explicitly answers these two important questions.  There is no need to guess, we have only need to listen.

Acts 28:23-24 will serve as the launchpad for this conference - "From morning till evening he [Paul] expounded to them, testifying to the kingdom of God and trying to convince them about Jesus both from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets. Some were convinced by what he said, but others disbelieved." The Bible is a single book, authored by a single God, delivering the good news to his people about the person and the work of his Son.

Are you convinced?  
Do you disbelieve?  
Come and find out!
