Biblical Hermeneutics

February 14th - May 16th, 2018

About the Class: Biblical Hermeneutics

This spring we will continue the High Pointe Institute by studying Biblical Hermeneutics, a class that will cover the formation of the canon and the principles necessary for proper biblical interpretation. Special attention will be given to the hermeneutical triad of history, literature, and theology. There is no cost for the class, but participants are encouraged to buy their own books (the syllabus with the book list can be found here). All men and women are encouraged to participate. The class will meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:00pm and will run from February 14 through May 16 (except for March 7 and April 11).

Intro to Biblical Counseling

February 14th - May 16th, 2018

Introduction to Biblical Counseling is a basic introduction to biblical counseling theory and techniques. Attention is focused on how the Scriptures and theology form the foundation and substance for Christian counseling. Biblical concepts for understanding people and their problems, heart worship, guilt, a biblical view of self, the biblical method of change, and the proper handling of crisis situations are addressed.

Theology Conference - Christ From Beginning to End

April 28th, 2018

Conference Description

How we see Christ and how we read the Bible are directly related. And while many people are encouraged to know that the Bible is about Christ, they end up discouraged when they can't explain how the Bible's various parts relate to him. Some attempt to force the pieces of the Bible together, making superficial jumps to Jesus. Others give up trying to understand the Bible altogether, losing confidence in God's Word.

So, how can we read the Bible in such way as to grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ on every page of Scripture? We need a full reading of Scripture, one that reads the Bible according to its nature, its structure, and its own agenda.

On Saturday, April 28 High Pointe will be hosting Dr. Steve Wellum to speak on this topic from his new book, "Christ from Beginning to End." All are invited to join!



Event Timing

Saturday, April 28, 2018 (9:00 am - 5:00 pm) *detailed schedule below


Dr. Wellum came to Southern Seminary from Associated Canadian Theological Schools and Northwest Baptist Theological College and Seminary where he had taught theology since 1996. He has also served as a senior pastor and interim pastor in South Dakota and Kentucky as well as a conference speaker at various engagements in the U.S., Canada, and the United Kingdom. Wellum has written numerous journal articles and book reviews for various publications including the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, The Southern Baptist Journal of Theology, and the Reformation and Revival Journal. In addition, he has written articles and book chapters in Believer’s Baptism, Reclaiming the Center, Beyond the Bounds, The Compromised Church, and the Holman Bible Dictionary. He is a member of the Evangelical Theological Society and the Evangelical Philosophical Society.
