RPTS TO HOST FIFTH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON WESTMINSTER CONFESSION – PROFS FROM VARIOUS SEMINARIES ADDRESS CHRIST’S CONTINUAL OFFICE OF PROPHET IN THE CHURCH THROUGH PREACHING
(Pittsburgh, Pa.) – June 16, 2008 – The Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary (RPTS) will host its fifth annual Westminster Confession into the 21st Century: An International Conference on the Work of the Westminster Assembly June 27 and 28 on its Point Breeze campus, 7418 Penn Ave. Professors from various seminaries will address current issues relating to the theology and influence of the Westminster Confession, the major summary confession of beliefs for most Reformed and Presbyterian churches.
This year’s event will feature the first installment of a 3-year series focusing on the three offices of Jesus Christ: Prophet, Priest, and King. The 2008 conference will focus on how Christ’s prophetic office continues today in the church through preaching.
Speakers and their topics are:
Dr. Dennis E. Johnson, professor of practical theology for Westminster Seminary California, on “Preaching Christ from All of Scripture”; Dr. Dennis J. Prutow, professor of homiletics and pastoral theology for RPTS, on “God’s Purposeful Power in Preaching”; Dr. Wayne R. Spear, professor emeritus of systematic theology for RPTS, on “The Westminster Assembly and Preaching”; Rev. Anthony Selvaggio, visiting professor of New Testament studies for RPTS, on “Preaching Advice from the ‘Sermon’ to the Hebrews”; Dr. Richard C. Gamble, professor of systematic theology for RPTS, on “Calvin the Preacher”; and Dr. Joel R. Beeke, president and professor of systematic theology and homiletics for Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, on “The Puritans and Preaching”.
Registrants will have the opportunity to interact with these scholars through question and answer sessions following each lecture, and during informal discussion at break times. The conference is open to anyone interested.
Cost is $50. The optional Saturday lunch is an additional $6. Everyone in attendance will receive a free copy of Biblical Baptism, by Frederick S. Leahy from Crown & Covenant Publications, and a free copy of four pre-conference talks given at the 2007 Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology on the topic The Word: Above All Earthly Powers care of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals.
