Speaker Dr Paul Barnett (AM)

Luke’s insight into discipleship  

Following Jesus to Jerusalem’ (based on Luke 9–19) 

Bishop Paul Barnett is a prolific author, theologian and historian.  He was Bishop of North Sydney for eleven years until 2001 and is an Emeritus faculty member of Moore Theological College and lectures at Regent College.   Paul completed a Bachelor of Divinity at Moore College and his twin interests are Christian ministry (clergy and lay) and the 'world' of the era of the New Testament. His passion is to connect the NT as it appeared in that 'world' with the ministry in and to the 'now world'. He has a lifelong interest in Christian origins, the NT in its times and careful exegesis of NT texts, based on the Greek text and has written a number of commentaries.  Bishop Paul will be leadings through some insights into discipleship from Luke’s gospel.  He was recently made a Member in the General Division of the order of Australia (AM) for significant service to the Anglican Church of Australia. We are very pleased Bishop Paul along with his wife Anita, will be with us for the weekend.
