Book Now For the Oak Hill Annual School of Theology

Oak Hill Annual School of Theology
With former Principal Dr David Peterson
Wednesday 18 May 2011
10am–4pm at Oak Hill College

Transformed by God:
The New Covenant Applied

The annual School of Theology is an opportunity to take a day out to hear inspiring biblical teaching and do some theological reflection on key issues for ministry. This year, David Peterson, former Principal of Oak Hill, is speaking on the theme of Transformed by God. He will be linking the Old Testament promises of God for lives that are genuinely renewed and changed, to their fulfilment in the New Testament.

The lectures take as their starting point the new covenant oracle in Jeremiah 31:31-34. In those verses, the prophet promises a definitive forgiveness of sins, a transformed heart, and a knowledge of God surpassing anything previously experienced in Israel. In various ways, the New Testament proclaims the fulfillment of these promises in the Lord Jesus Christ and offers the hope of renewal and change to all who come to him.

David will first examine the oracle in the context of Jeremiah's other messages of hope. Turning to Luke- Acts, he will then show how Israel is renewed and Gentiles come to share in the blessings promised by Jeremiah. Hebrews sees the promises fulfilled in the high-priestly work of Jesus the Messiah, making it possible for a new pattern of acceptable worship to be established.

Finally, Paul's teaching about the ministry of the New Covenant in 2 Corinthians 3 will introduce a study of the way gospel and Spirit together bring transformation to believers.

Refreshments and a buffet lunch are included as part of the day.

And if you're an Evangelical Anglican within cooee of London, you jolly well ought to be there. (That was me, not Oak Hill.)
