James Voelz’s annual Kingsbury Lecture
Last year, at his second annual Jack Dean Kingsbury chair lecture, Professor Voelz spoke about Jesus standing in for us as the “atonement” for many (Mark 10:45) in the face of divine wrath against sin, and rescuing us from Satan’s power. In a continuation of the salvation theme, and to achieve a focus on the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, his third annual lecture will focus on salvation coming to us, what that looks like, and how that is accomplished. He will do so by considering in detail Mark 10:17-31, under the theme, “Who is Able to be Saved?” Dr. James W. Voelz, the Dr. Jack Dean Kingsbury Professor of New Testament Theology, will present this annual lecture on Monday, 7:00-8:30pm in Wyneken Hall.
