Event description

Description

This event is for any Christian looking to go deeper in their faith and gain a better understanding of theological themes in the Bible. During this event there will be an optional forum for those who wish to learn more about studying with WTC.

Speaker: Dr Matthew Lynch

Matt teaches Old Testament and serves as Academic Dean at WTC. He holds a BA in biblical studies from Cairn University, Philadelphia, an MA and ThM in Christian Studies and Old Testament from Regent College, Vancouver, and a PhD in Hebrew Bible from Emory University, Atlanta. He also co-hosts a podcast on biblical studies (onscript.study) and blogs at theologicalmisc.net. Matt is particularly interested in helping students grasp the theological and literary contours of the Old Testament, wrestle through its ethical and historical challenges, and understand its ongoing significance. Matt is married and has two children.

Speaker: Dr Jasper Knecht

Jasper teaches Christian doctrine at WTC. He grew up in the Netherlands, and completed his BA in Theology and Biblical Studies at the Evangelische Theologische Faculteit (Evangelical Theological Faculty) or ETF in Leuven, Belgium. He completed his MPhil and PhD in Systematic and Historical Theology at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. Jasper’s research focuses on the reception and propagation of 5th- and 6th- century conciliar, Christological theology in the early Medieval Church (the Carolingian Empire). His interests include the history of doctrine, and particularly the development of Christological thought in the Patristic era, Late Antiquity, and the Early Medieval Church. Jasper is married to Stefania and is a big fan of classical music. Besides his work at WTC, he works with a Christian think tank in Austria.
