Felix Arnott Memorial Lecture
Wednesday, 23 July 2014 (7.30–9.00pm)
One of the great questions of life is what will happen to us after we die. The answer, of course, is that we can’t know until it happens. What we can know, however, is what the writers of key books in the Bible thought. This lecture will explore the development of belief in life after death in the Bible and ask how this might help us today to explore this profoundly important question more fully.
Paula Gooder Seminar
Being the Body of Christ: Mind, Body, Spirit and Soul in the Writings of Paul
Many people assume that Paul the apostle was opposed to bodies and, in fact, anything physical. A swift exploration of his writings, however, suggests that this cannot be true, not least because Paul’s vision of life after death involves bodily resurrection and his primary metaphor for Christian community is that of being Christ’s body. This raises the question, therefore, of what Paul’s view of the mind, body, spirit and soul were and what we might learn from this today.
