Join Drs. Saleska and Oberdeck as they discuss Jacob's next move in his ongoing family situation. He's worked for his father-in-law for a long time, and now the Lord asks him to return to his homeland. How can he leave Laban?
Dr. Saleska takes us through the tumultuous household of Jacob as he attends to the sisters, Leah and Rachel, whom he has married, and their two servants, all who provide him with twelve sons and one daughter.
Dr. Saleska explains in detail Abraham's comission given to Eliezar to find a wife for his son Isaac. This is not your ordinary romance story, at least not in the way we ordinarily think of romance today. Yet this is a love story!
Dr. Joel Elowsky provides background on Mark's African connection, and shares the life story of Cyprian of Carthage, Confessor and Martyr. Learn why the subject of martyrdom is particularly powerful for African Christians today.
Few are aware of the influence of Africa on early Christianity. Dr. Joel Elowsky of Concordia University Wisconsin introduces us to the influence and impact of Africa in the early church. Dr. Elowsky is the Research Director for the Center for Early African Christianity. Learn more about our theological roots through this series of presentations.
