Justification in Paul’s Epistles

A world class scholar will be in Malaysia, sharing on a burning issue "justification by faith" that Luther claims is the article of faith on which the church either stands or falls...

Course: Justification in Paul’s Epistles
Lecturer: Dr. Peter O’Brien

Description: Justification is the doctrine where a sinner is declared righteous before God on the basis of the righteousness of Christ and his atoning work on the Cross. This course will explore the development and presentation of justification in the letters written by the Apostle Paul. In view of recent scholastic studies that offer a “fresh interpretation” of the doctrine of justification, this course will be a timely reminder of the biblical view of how God justifies us while we were still enemies with Him.

Dates: 1 Mar (Sat), 4 Mar (Tue), 6 Mar (Thu), 8 Mar (Sat), 11 Mar (Tue), 13 Mar (Thu) & 14 Mar (Fri)

Time: Weekday classes meet from 8.00 pm to 10.30 pm. Weekend classes meet from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm

Location: First Baptist Church, Lot 8 Jalan Pantai 9/7, Petaling Jaya, 46000 Selangor
