Christ’s words to his disciples at the last supper are a precious gift. They explain what discipleship will look like when Christ is gone, and how the disciples are to relate to God, one another, and a hostile world.
The first session will show how the discourse is structured around Jesus’ repeated phrase ‘these things I have said to you so that…’ and will show how this structure should govern our preaching of the discourse. The remaining sessions will be an exposition of the discourse following this structure, asking what Jesus’ intent was in speaking these words to his disciples, and thus what lessons we are to draw for discipleship for today.
(These sessions will not be overly technical, though you can read the full academic article on which this conference is based here)
