Blogging Through Winterim 2013

After church this morning I’m going to hop into my car and drive down to Van Nuys for a week long class at The Master’s Seminary. One of the perks of being alumni from TMS is that I can audit classes at the seminary for free, including their Winterim class offered each January. Winterim is a week long intensive class taught by a distinguished scholar on his field of study. This year, that scholar is Dr. Yarbrough of Wheaton College and the subject matter will be the Johannine epistles.

Here’s the description of the class and a summary of Dr. Yarbrough’s background:

ryarbroughDr. Yarbrough (M.A., Wheaton College Graduate School; Ph.D., University of Aberdeen) has been Professor of New Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO since 2010 and is the former chair of the New Testament department at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He has published extensively in the field of New Testament, including his recent volume on the Johannine Epistles in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament (2008) and his Pictorial Guide to the New Testament from Kregel (2010). Dr. Yarbrough is ordained in the Presbyterian Church of America, where he has served in local churches for many years. In addition to his academic and ministry pursuits, Dr. Yarbrough enjoys woodcutting, landscaping, running, and coaching baseball. He and his wife, Bernadine have two adult sons.

As I’ve done for the last couple of year’s, I’ll be blogging through the class each day sharing some of the richest insights from Dr. Yarbrough, so stay tuned this week for some special content on 1, 2 and 3 John.
