February 7-11, 2021
We are excited to announce the theme for the 85th annual Freed-Hardeman University Lectures (February 7-11, 2021), "He Went About Doing Good: The Compassion of Christ in Luke". The Gospel of Luke uniquely tells the story of Jesus the compassionate Christ as recalled by Peter’s summary of Jesus’ ministry in Acts 10:38. From the birth narrative of Jesus (Luke 1-2) through Luke’s record of His ascension (Luke 24:50-53) readers encounter the Spirit leading Jesus through His public ministry. Jesus’ powerful teaching (particularly in parables), miracles, and encounters with unique individuals, allow readers to see God’s will made evident in a way that invites readers to grow in their compassion towards one another and the marginalized as well. May we remember the compassion of our Savior in Luke as we desire to “do good” to others, especially those of the household of faith (Gal. 6:10).
The Lectureship committee and many other members of the FHU community work year round on the program. Kristi and I never cease to be amazed by the teamwork and devotion that is demonstrated by various administrators, faculty, staff, students, sponsors, and other team members who help to make this happen. We truly hope you will consider taking full advantage of every opportunity the FHU Lectureship offers. As we tentatively plan for the program in February, we are particularly excited about some new aspects of the Lectureship this year, while also looking forward to experiencing many of the traditional aspects of the program that have made it great year after year. It is our prayer that the 2021 Bible Lectureship will be a blessing and an encouragement to you.
