Trembath Lecture

The Trembath Endowment has been a special blessing to Christ College at Concordia University, enabling senior theology professors to have time for more in-depth research, study, and writing. This new knowledge and perspective is then passed on to our students, society, and the church. The Trembath lecture is one way in which the fruits of faculty research are made available to students, colleagues, and other interested parties.

Christ College, Concordia University Irvine, gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the Harry and Caroline Trembath endowment for the Professorship in Confessional Theology.

The Parabolic Universe: Learning from Jesus how to Interpret His Material Creation

Description: Typical studies of parables have a very narrow definition of what qualifies as a parable. The Bible's own definition of a parable is broad, including practically everything in God's creation. This lecture explores the principle of parables, interpretive lessons, and broad possibilities for application.
