Topic: Old Testament Theology Part 2
Instructor: Joe Fleener
Hosted by: Rolleston Baptist, Rolleston.
Many Christians are unfamiliar with the content of the Old Testament, let alone its historical setting and theological purpose for the covenant people of God. In part two of what is planned to be a three-part course we will look carefully at the Prophetic books (Isaiah-Malachi) of the English Old Testament canon. In doing so we will aim to gain a better grasp of their historical setting and God’s purpose in revealing Himself as He has in these books for His covenant people – both Old and New. History and Theology will come together as we bask in the glory of God’s timeless revelation of Himself to His people.

Location: Lemonwood Grove School, 14 Lemonwood Grove Drive. Time: 9.30am – 5.00pm. We would encourage those planning to come to confirm their intention and let us know the details of their flights into and out of Christchurch on that weekend. If anyone wants accommodation we will see what we can do. Please let me know of your plan to come so we can prepare for the printing of the session material, and the provision of lunch on the Saturday.
