Jay Phelan to speak at Bethlehem Covenant Church in Minneapolis
Jay Phelan, Senior Professor of Theological Studies at North Park Theological Seminary, will be at Bethlehem Covenant Church for three gatherings this month.
- Friday, Feb. 21 from 7 to 9 p.m.
- Saturday, Feb. 22 from 9 a.m. to Noon
- Sunday, Feb. 23 for Adult Sunday School (9:50 a.m.) and Worship (11 a.m.).
Phelan served as President and Dean of North Park Seminary for 14 years. Previous positions also included Executive Director of Publications for the Evangelical Covenant Church.
The end times are often viewed as a strange or dangerous part of the Bible. Some seem to think only scholars or cranks could be interested in such an esoteric topic. Jay will argue that, far from being weird, eschatology (the study of last or ultimate things) is a profoundly practical discipline. Far from being marginal to the Christian faith, it is at the heart of our faith and practice.
“We’d like to invite you to be present and hear Dr. Phelan speak about the end times and how it shapes our behavior today,” a release from the church read. “Come and learn from a world-class scholar about the Christian hope.”
