Dr. Hans Bayer, professor of New Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri, teaches on "How to Interpret the Parables in Mark" as a part of the Brown Bag Lunch series, hosted by The Journey, a local church planted by Covenant Seminary alumnus Darrin Patrick.
Dr. Lane G. Tipton, Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, PA, speaks about the heart of the Christian message. Christians must be careful not to mistake the gospel for the benefits of the gospel. While the benefits of the gospel, such as justification, adoption, and sanctification, are essential, we can misunderstand the gospel if we do not focus on the benefactor. The heart of the gospel is the person and work of Jesus Christ, who died and was raised for sinners.
