PRESENTER: Jackson Painter, Ph.D.
WEBINAR DATE & TIME - Wednesday, November 13th at 4:30 - 6:30pm PST
TOPIC - Hey Jude: A Fresh Approach to Interpreting the NT Book of Jude
DESCRIPTION - This 2-hr webinar focuses on the Bible book of Jude. What is the epistle of Jude about? Most interpreters see it as a response to "Christian" false teaching and lax ethics. By contrast, Greek New Testament expert, Jackson Painter, Ph.D., argues that the message of Jude was written to help the early church respond to persecution, including the martyrdom of Jesus' brother, James. If you're interested to take an introductory crash course for one evening on the letter of Jude, then sign up to be guided interactively by Dr. Painter as he walks us through Jude, showing us an interpretive approach that honors the full text, appears to make more sense of it, and better fits the first century Jewish character of this twenty-five-verse long letter. The desired outcome of this teaching is for you to be inspired to respond to hard times with the endurance of love.
