The Henry Center for Theological Understanding welcomes Michael Glerup, Executive Director of the Center for Early African Christianity at Eastern University.
On Wednesday, March 16, at 1:00 PM in the ATO Chapel of TEDS, Dr. Glerup will be delivering a lecture entitled:
“Visions and Veils: Reading Moses with the Early Church”
Come and join us — the lecture is free to all.
See below for a summary:
Moses, a key figure in the story of salvation and a friend of God and spoke to him “face to face,” was a humble man and a powerful intercessor for Israel, yet he was rejected and maligned by his community. The apostles and later interpreters – steeped in scripture and encouraged by Jesus – mined Moses’ life for insight into the Christian life and faith. In this lecture we will investigate with the early exegetes, particularly those from the African continent, the key events of Moses’ life and explore their implications for pastoral ministry, Christian formation, and the mission of the church.
