TQQ: Crisis in Antioch

  • Course Dates: Tue 15 May 2018, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

In the long term Paul’s tense relationship with the leadership in Jerusalem reached breaking point in a confrontation in his home church of Antioch.

The ramifications were wide-ranging and quite fundamental, and they leave us with two questions: What was Paul saying when he was trying to persuade gentiles to become Christians in any setting untouched by the controversies over the Jewish heritage? And what exactly did he mean by ‘righteousness by faith’ in a setting where that heritage was a critical issue? How do terms like ‘gift’ and ‘grace’ unlock doors into the profound theology associated with his name?

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).
