TQQ: Living in Hope

  • Course Dates: Tue 19 June, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Some think that Paul has been done no favours by those who found the centre of his thought in either ‘justification by faith’ or ‘in Christ’ rather than ‘waiting for God’s Son from heaven’.

There is plenty of grist to the mill of hope in Pauline faith, so we will sketch in some of the ways in which living hopefully defines the future and even touches the present. Resurrection thinking comes into play once again, as well as some surprising thoughts about the destiny of Israel. Paul’s surprising (to some) but careful argument in his great letter to the Christians in Rome will bring this topic to a climax and a conclusion.

Advance booking not required, simply come along on the evening. For further information about Theology Quest and Questions, visit our TQQ page or contact Alison Ogden (aogden@sarum.ac.uk; 01722 424826) or David Catchpole (drc@sarum.ac.uk).
