Mount Zion Reformed Presbyterian Church will be holding a conference in early October on the subject of Covenant Theology. I thought I would post the information on the conference for those in the Greater Moncton area who might be interested in attending. The speaker this year is D. Patrick Ramsey. Here are the details:
Announcing Mt. Zion’s
Biblical Summit and Fall Festival Oct. 4-6 2013
“The Structure of Redemption: Covenant Theology and its Applications”
The bible tells the true story of God’s very good creation, the rebellion and fall of man, the redemption of a people through Jesus Christ, and finally a great renewal and glorification of the world together with his people. This is the big picture, but the plot structure of the bible is undergirded and moved along by God through covenants. You might say that covenants are the framework upon which the story of Scripture and our understanding of it depends. Understanding the covenants of the bible in themselves and in relation to how they move God’s plan of salvation along towards its fulfillment in Christ is therefore incredibly important. To the extent that we understand this framework rightly we are better able to understand what God has done in history for our Salvation as revealed in the Scriptures and its application to us as individuals, families, and churches. To the extent that we misread this covenant framework we open ourselves up to great misunderstandings of God’s revelation in Scripture and its application to our lives.
In order that we might all better understand, apply, and be built up by the Scriptures the Leadership and members of Mt. Zion Presbyterian Church would like to invite you to join us and Pastor D. Patrick Ramsey for the 2013 Biblical Summit being held in conjunction with our Fall Festival.
