You can learn more about Dr. Gibson and his published works via the WTS website here.

In partnership with our friends at the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, this year’s conference/course will be on the theme “The Grand Sweep of Scripture: Intro to Biblical Theology.”

Come to the Blue Ridge mountains this winter and join Dr. Gibson as together we explore the covenantal nature of the Christian Bible from a biblical-theological perspective, learn to read and understand our Bibles better, and see the Holy Spirit-inspired themes, patterns, and developments across the whole sweep of the Scriptures!

The conference will take place 6:00-9:00 PM on Thursday (1/27), 6:00-9:00 PM on Friday (1/28) and 9:00-5:00 PM on Saturday (1/29).


Course Description:

The study of biblical theology includes: (1) the history, definition, task, method, and goal of biblical theology; (2) the attempt to identify the “center” of biblical theology as a way of understanding the relationship of the various parts to the whole; and (3) selected themes in biblical theology as those threads that make up the fabric of the biblical canon.


Location: Grace Church, Roanoke (2731 Edgewood St SW, Roanoke, VA 24015)
