Knowing Christ Conference

From the foreword by J.I. Packer:

The Puritans loved the Bible, and dug into it in depth. Also, they loved the Lord Jesus, who is of course the Bible’s focal figure; they circled round him, centred on him, studied minutely all that Scripture had to say about him, and constantly, conscientiously, exalted him in their preaching, praises, and prayers. Mark Jones, an established expert on many aspects of Puritan thought, also loves the Bible and its Christ, and the Puritans as expositors of both; and out of this triune love he has written a memorable unpacking of the truth about the Saviour according to the classic Reformed tradition, and the Puritans supremely. Knowing Christ is a book calculated to enrich our twenty-first-century souls, and one that it is an honour to introduce.

Morning Conference

In this brief morning conference, Dr Jones will be presenting two sessions unpacking some of the key truths about Christ from his book “Knowing Christ”.

  • Humiliation and exaltation in Christ’s life and ours
  • What does it mean to be Christ-centred?
