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

STM_BLC_BGC_2018_ParablesSeminarMar3

“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.

Sermon: The Bible Tells Me So – Leigh

Slide2

This week, as part of our ongoing series on the Reformation, Leigh shared a meditation on the theme, “Sola Scriptura“, or “Scripture Alone”.

Working from this week’s scripture lessons (Amos 5:6-7, 10-15Hebrews 4:12-16Mark 10:17-31), Leigh spoke about how declaring “Scripture Alone” as foundational to our faith meant encountering Jesus through the Bible and being transformed by that encounter.
