Reformation and the Old Testament

3 July - 5 July, 2017


Under this topic, we are examining two related themes - examples of Reformation which occur within the Old Testament and the ways in which the Old Testament was taken up in the Reformation as we celebrate the 500th Anniversary of Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses to the church door in Wittenberg. Through this, we hope to understand ways in which the Old Testament is itself a reforming document and also how it has and continues to reform the church today.
