Kenneth Bailey lectures on Jesus as a theologian

So far this week I have been privileged to hear Kenneth Bailey (author of Poet and Peasant (Eerdmans), Through Peasants Eyes (Eerdmans), Jacob and the Prodigal (IVP), The Cross and the Prodigal (IVP), Finding the Lost: Cultural Keys to Luke 15 (Concordia), among others) lecture on 2 passages from Luke (7:36-50 and 4:16-31). It has been most worthwhile to hear this scholar of repute who has spent 40 years living and teaching NT in the Middle East unpack and shed some cultural light on some of these well-known passages. This post is merely to alert any who may be within reach of Broughty Ferry (just near Dundee) of this event’s happening. The details for the remainder of the week’s talks are as follows:

Where: St Mary’s Episcopal Church, Queen Street, Broughty Ferry, Scotland
Times: 7.30-8.30 pm

Wednesday 7 June – The wise and foolish builders (Isa. 28:14-18; Lk. 6:46-49)

Thursday 8 June – The good shepherd (Ps. 23; Jn 10)

Friday 9 June – The rich man and Lazarus (Lk. 16:19-31)

Saturday 10 June – The prodigal (Lk. 15:11-54)

Sunday 11 June – 11am service, St Mary’s Episcopal Church, Broughty Ferry

PS. As a father of a new born (who has been attending too), anyone that can get me out and keep me awake anytime after dinner is doing well.
