Bible Chapel Seminar: Hope in the Darkest Hour
Purpose: To offer instruction at BCDH aimed at pastors and teachers but open to any with a desire for Biblical instruction at a more complex level. To assist Bible preachers and teachers by providing on-going training in Biblical Theology of a kind not currently available in commentaries. In my personal seminary training, I never had a course that taught me how the Scriptures work, especially how the inspired authors use narrative to teach theology. What I have learned over the last 15-20 years of study I desire earnestly to share with others who are responsible for teaching the Word of God.
Topic: Hope in the Darkest Hour
The books of 1 & 2 Kings follow the history of the kingdom of Israel from its glory days under Solomon to its eventual collapse. Yet the royal history is merely the backdrop for the book’s message. 1 & 2 Kings aims to address hearts that feel let down by God, to help them understand their circumstances, to show them where hope is to be found, and to ground their confidence in the word of God. Those who attend this seminar will discover the message of 1 & 2 Kings and how it is relevant for believers today, especially those who struggle to believe the promises of God.
Instructor: Dr. Christopher Jero teaches Old Testament courses through Columbia International University (Columbia, SC) and Mars Hill Academy (Mason, OH). Dr. Jero holds an M.A. in Old Testament from Columbia International University and a Ph.D. in Hebrew and Cognate Languages from Hebrew Union College. He has written and lectured on the subject of interpreting biblical narrative and has recently published on the topic of narrative interpretation in the Bulletin for Biblical Review. Dr. Jero’s desire is to serve the Church of Jesus Christ by assisting Christian leaders and their congregations to interpret Scripture and to recognize its clear call on the life of all people.
