Eastwood Uniting Church


More Details:

Today, as in every field of endeavour, there is intense research into the Bible and religion.  Yet how long does it take for ideas being debated passionately by experts to reach the pews?  Here is a chance to savour some of those debates while still fresh.

Eastwood Uniting Church has invited Dr Jeff Aernie, Lecturer in New Testament, at United Theological College to speak on  current research topics.

Dr Jeff Aernie, will address current research on:

  • Grappling with Grace –the idea of “gift/grace” in the NT and thinking about the connection between salvation and virtue; and
  • Reading the NT in Context – how the NT engages with ideas and topics prevalent in the ancient world, with a particular focus on the Dead Sea Scrolls.

There will be ample opportunity for questions and discussion following the talks.

Both sessions will be held at the Eastwood Uniting Church, 16 Lakeside Road. There is parking beneath the building and in the street.

For those coming directly from work, the building is adjacent to Eastwood Railway Station (Northern Line).  Eastwood has many eateries with a variety of cuisine.
