Description


The speaker

Dr Crispin Fletcher-Louis is the Director of Whymanity: Research and Training (www.whymanity.com) and Visiting Fellow at the University of Gloucestershire. He is an internationally recognized biblical scholar, with an expertise in the historical context of the New Testament and is currently writing a four-volume book on Jesus and his divine identity (www.JesusMonotheism.com).

Teaching is delivered in a conversational, practically-focused format, and with worship and prayer.

Content

What does it mean that God decides to make humanity “in our image and according to our likeness” (Gen 1:26, 28)?

This event explores the biblical vision of God’s original purposes for humanity, drawing on some remarkable recent discoveries about the profound meaning of the Hebrew words of Genesis 1 and other Old Testament Texts.

The day will be a rich mixture of historical and literary scholarship, combined with practical reflections on the significance of one of the most challenging passages in our Scriptures.

Attendees typically leave this event with their hearts expanded and their minds stretched.

What others have said about this event

"It was beautiful! Highlights were ... Genesis 1 and God's image/idol especially Ezekiel 16"

"The understanding I now have of my identity as God's dwelling, and where I think this topic is headed has already altered the way I pray."

"It’s over 9 years since I first heard Crispin teaching in this area. It was a real eye-opener, helping me to understand the value to God of me as a being, as well as my work and the rest of my life." Tim Sture
