Submitted by on September 27, 2010 – 2:11 pmNo Comment

The 2010 Day of Exegetical Reflection at Concordia Seminary featured noted evangelical scholar Donald A. Carson. Dr. Carson presented two lectures on the Parables of Jesus, which were followed by comments from Concordia Seminary and Concordia University professors.

The Day of Exegetical Reflection provides on opportunity for participants to interact with scholars engaged in biblical studies from within a creedal and confessional perspective. Each year, participants hear from the faculty of Concordia Seminary and invited guest presenters who have produced significant and helpful studies on the Scriptures.
