Special Seminar — The Stories that Jesus told: Exploring the Challenge of the Parables of Jesus


“The Stories that Jesus told: Exploring the Challenge of the Parables of Jesus”

9AM – 1PM , Saturday 3 March 2018
at Bangsar Lutheran Church, Kuala Lumpur

Jesus is a master storyteller. But the parables he tells are more than interesting plotlines that captivate his audience. They reveal the character of God and his kingdom, announce the expectation God has for his people, and challenge the assumptions of the hearers in order to orientate their lives in the light of the coming of the kingdom. In this seminar, we will hear the parables afresh and learn the impact and challenge they have in our everyday discipleship during these trying times that we live in.

> Speaker: Rev Dr Lim Kar Yong
Kar Yong is a lecturer in New Testament Studies at Seminari Theoloji Malaysia (STM). He is also the Director of the Centre for Bible Engagement and the Director of Postgraduate Studies at STM. He is passionate about anything related to the New Testament — the Greek language, manuscript, archeology, geography, socio-economic environment, and the history of the New Testament era. He also finds time to research and write, and has authored three books and numerous essays.

Start your 40 day Lenten Journey with others at a reflective Ash Wednesday Service, 8pm, 14 February 2018 @ the Father’s House [Bangsar Lutheran Church], 23, Jalan Abdullah off Jalan Bangsar, 59000 KL.


O God, early in the morning I cry to you.

Help me to pray

And to concentrate my thoughts on you;

I cannot do this alone.

In me there is darkness,

But with you there is light;

I am lonely, but you do not leave me;

I am feeble in heart, but with you there is help;

I am restless, but with you there is peace.

In me there is bitterness, but with you there is patience;

I do not understand your ways,

But you know the way for me….

Restore me to liberty,

And enable me to live now

That I may answer before you and before men.

Lord whatever this day may bring,

Your name be praised.


Epiphany Sunday Sermon Series 2018

“The curious uncertainty that surrounds the feast of Epiphany is as old as the feast itself. We know that long before Christmas was celebrated, Epiphany was the highest holiday in the Eastern and Western churches. Its origins are obscure, but it is certain that since ancient times this day has brought to mind four different events: the birth of Christ, the baptism of Christ, the wedding at Cana, and the arrival of the Magi from the East…. Be that as it may, since the fourth century the church has left the birth of Christ out of the feast of Epiphany…. The removal of the birth of Christ from his baptismal day had great significance. In gnostic and heretical circles in the East, the idea arose that the baptismal day was actually the day of Christ’s birth as the Son of God…. But therein lay the possibility of a dangerous error, namely, a misunderstanding of God’s incarnation…. If God had not accepted Jesus as his Son until Jesus’ baptism, we would remain unredeemed. But if Jesus is the Son of God who from his conception and birth assumed our own flesh and blood, then and then alone is he true man and true God; only then can he help us; for then the “hour of salvation” for us has really come in his birth; then the birth of Christ is the salvation of all people.”

~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer
