Seminary’s Gupta presents spring faculty lecture March 5

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

All are invited to the 2019 Spring Faculty Lecture on Tuesday, March 5, at 6 p.m. in Hoover 105. 

Nijay K.Gupta’s lecture, “People of Faith: Why the First Christians Called Themselves ‘Believers,'” will focus on why followers of Jesus adopted the label “believers” in reference to their identity, and even referred to their religion as “the faith.” What significance did this pose for them? Was it primarily about “beliefs,” or something more? Gupta will explore these important historical questions and also address the relevance this discussion has for Christian identity today.

Gupta is the recipient of the 2017-18 Faculty Achievement Award for Graduate Research and Scholarship and is an associate professor of New Testament at Portland Seminary. 

Come early, between 5 and 6 p.m., and check out the work of our Richter Student Scholars and Steinfeldt Peace Scholars at a symposium in the Hoover lobby. Students will present their research and peace projects in a conversational poster format. Refreshments will be served.

Questions? Contact Laurie Fair at lfair@georgefox.edu.
