Regional Conference with Vaughan Roberts
We are all convinced that the big theme of the Bible is Jesus Christ and his work of salvation. However, there are many parts of the Bible that on first glance don’t seem to have much to do with Jesus. So whether you are a pastor preparing a sermon, or a church member preparing a Bible passage for a home group, youth group, or Sunday school, there are some very significant questions to ask. How does this passage fit into the big story of God’s salvation plan for the world? What does it have to do with Jesus? We often struggle in answering these questions.
In his book God’s Big Picture: Tracing the Story-line of the Bible, Vaughan Roberts explains how in every part of the Bible we see God advancing his plan. In two sessions at this Langham Regional Conference, Vaughan will give us an overview of the big story of the Bible. He will give us helpful tools on how to communicate each part of the Bible in a way that’s focused on Jesus and his grace. This short conference will be very useful for everyone serving in their church, because whenever the Bible is explained it’s important that Jesus is presented clearly in all his glory. This is a core conviction of Langham Austria. The conference will close with an expository sermon on Daniel 1, in which Vaughan will demonstrate in practice the principles he has explained in the lectures.
