Spirit, Scripture & Sending by Amos Yong

St Mellitus College, London

The work of the Spirit of God has been associated with witness to Jesus Christ since the Day of Pentecost, even as the book that tells of that story, the Acts of the Apostles, has also been known as the Acts of the Holy Spirit. Yet how else ought we to understand what since the Council of Nicea we have called the “person” of the Holy Spirit in light of the broad witness of scripture? How does what we are told about the divine ruach of the Hebrew Bible and the hagios pneuma of the New Testament help us to understand the redemptive work of the breath of God that hovered over the primordial waters? 

On Monday 26 June Prof. Amos Yong will speak on the subject of 'Spirit, Scripture & Sending: Trinitarian Missiology in Canonical Perspective' as part of our McDonald Lecture Series 2017. This lecture explores the mission of God to save the world in light of the comings and goings of the divine Spirit intimated through the pages of scripture.
