Special TEE Course by Dr Peter O’Brien

In colaboration with Church Based Theological Education (CBTE), STM is pleased to announce a special Theological Education by Extension ( TEE) Course by Dr Peter O’Brien on "Justification in the Paul's Epistles."

This course will explore the development and presentation of the theme of justification in the letters written by the Apostle Paul. In view of recent scholastic studies that offer a “fresh interpretation” of the doctrine of justification, this course will be a timely reminder of the biblical view of how God justifies us while we were still enemies with him.

Dates: March 1 (Sat), 4 (Tue), 6 (Thu), 7 (Fri), 8 (Sat), 11 (Tue), 13 (Thu), and 14 (Fri)

Time: Tue, Thu and Fri: 8.00-10.30pm; Sat: 9.00am-5.00pm

Venue: First Baptist Church; Lot 8, Jalan Pantai 9/7, 46000 Petaling Jaya
