Faculty Conference Preview: Johnson
In what way is the Bible a unified document? Come to our annual faculty conference on January 13th and 14th, 2012, to hear the lectures offered by our faculty. Dr. Dennis Johnson, former professor of New Testament, and now Professor of Practical Theology, as well as the author of numerous books, including Him We Proclaim: Preaching Christ From All the Scriptures, will address the unity of the Scriptures. Here's a preview of his lecture:
When the risen Christ appeared to his disciples and "interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself" (Luke 24:27), he revealed the climax of God's covenant of grace, the fulfillment of God's promises to Abraham, Israel, and David--the great shift in the history of redemption from shadow to substance, from ancient hope to the "last days" arrival and achievement of the Savior himself. The Christocentric interpretation of Scripture that Jesus taught his apostles had been anticipated in the Old Testament prophets and would find expression throughout the New Testament writings.
