Check out the Vose Online Open Day hosted by my Seminary! You can check in at select times on Thursday May 28th (Perth time) to chat with particular staff and faculty members, take a virtual tour of the campus, watch my lecture about the identify and function of the “disciple whom Jesus loved” in the Gospel of John, watch short videos promoting different units scheduled in the upcoming semester, or learn more about the various degrees (e.g., Certificates, Diplomas, Associate Degrees, Bachelors, Masters, PhD) that we offer through the Australian College of Theology (ACT) or the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector. You can complete a whole degree, or audit specific classes, from the comfort of your own home online. If you are pursuing a vocation in the church or in the academy or just desire to learn more about the Bible or Christian theology and ministry, you should join us online for the open day.
There are only five weeks left in my semester, plus a few weeks of grading after that, and then I will return to regular blogging. Until then, I would like to occasionally post a few things that I am doing at Vose Seminary. I recently wrote a more pastoral blog post on their website entitled “The Value of a Sabbath Rest.” It offers a brief overview of the institution of the Sabbath in the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament and a pastoral application about how we would all benefit (physically, psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually) from taking time for Sabbath rests over this season. I hope that you enjoy the post.
