Dr. George Guthrie Lecture: Grasping the Beauty of the Old Testament in the New

'He Opened Their Minds to Understand the Scripture’: Grasping the Beauty of the Old Testament in the New

In partnership with Regent College and their Alumni Office, we are excited to host Dr. George Guthrie for an evening lecture exploring the myriad ways that the authors of the New Testament drew from the Old Testament: quotes, allusions, echoes (faint allusions), references to key people, etc., as well as how later rabbis understood such things. Join us as Dr. Guthrie helps us to appreciate the Scripture-soaked imaginations of the New Testament authors and how their readings of the Old Testament shaped their authorship of the Gospels, the book of Acts and the epistles.

Click here to register!

To all area Regent College Alumni: You’re invited to a meet & greet with one of Regent’s newest faculty members, Dr. George Guthrie. Dr. Guthrie will be hosting a stand-up reception for all alumni and friends of the College at 6 pm before he presents his evening public lecture on Wednesday, July 31st at 7pm. You’ll have the chance to connect with Dr. Guthrie, reconnect with old friends, and hear a brief update on life at the College. We hope you can make it, and please share this invite with fellow alumni in the area.

Carolina Way immediately smoothed my transition to college, as I was introduced to 100 people that all desired to pursue their faith in college. It was great to have a group of people right off the bat that I knew and could talk to and hang out with. It truly was the best way to kick off my college experience.

What Does Faith Have To Do With The Practice of Medicine?

The practices of medicine and attending to those who are sick have long been engaged by the Christian tradition. But what does it look like to faithfully live into a vocation in health care today? What does moral formation look like during medical school? How do Christians wisely navigate the challenges of modern medicine in a way that bears witness to and participates in the healing ministry of Christ?

Educational Inequality and the Christian Response

LUNCH WITH PHILIP JAMES (UNC ALUM) OF THE MEMPHIS TEACHER RESIDENCY

Educational inequality has been called "the civil rights issue of our time" by both President Bush and President Obama.  What is the nature of this inequality?  And what might a faithful Christian response to it be?
