TS534/LF548 Theology and Practice of Humility (3 Credits)

17-26 May 2017 (starts on Wednesday, ends on the following Friday), 9.00 am-5.00 pm

What is biblical humility and how could we have it? God’s Word commands us to have humility: “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up” (James 4:10). When Dr Abraham Joseph wrote his PhD dissertation on “A Christian Theology of Humility,” he found that biblical humility is different than what we consider as “humility.” You will explore these and many more practical implications of having biblical humility for marriage, health, family, ministry and Christian life.
