The Wesley Forum, offering insight into the history, theology and spirituality of John and Charles Wesley, is held annually at Evangelical Seminary during the spring semester. This year we are pleased to welcome as our special guest Bible scholar Ben Witherington, III, Amos Professor of New Testament for Doctoral Studies at Asbury Theological Seminary and doctoral faculty at St. Andrews University in Scotland.
Witherington is considered one of the top evangelical scholars in the world, and is an elected member of the prestigious SNTS, a society dedicated to New Testament studies. A popular lecturer, Witherington has presented seminars for churches, colleges and biblical meetings around the world. He has written over forty books, including The Jesus Quest and The Paul Quest, both of which were selected as top biblical studies works by Christianity Today. He is also a frequent guest on both radio and television.
During his visit to our Myerstown campus, Dr. Witherington will address the topic, The Image of God: Theology and Ethics in the Bible. Join us for a day of stimulating lectures and good fellowship.
