SI Short Course

A Place At The Table

A Place at the Table, presented by Shofar Institute in February 2017, addresses some of the pressing social needs in South Africa through a thorough study of the Gospel of Luke. Presented by Theuns Jacobs (pastor of Shofar Cape Town, PhD in New Testament studies) together with Heinrich Titus, Dr. Nicola de Jager and Dr. Dieter von Fintel, this course will give you a rounded, thorough understanding of how to navigate the ideological differences between social groups in South Africa while equipping you in the Word. We have released a few free sessions here for anyone who’d be interested in getting a sneak peak of the course content.

We hope you enjoy these free sessions from this Short Course! If you’d like to purchase all the sessions, you can do so on our Online Store. The full course is a 10-part series including a comprehensive workbook. Presented by www.shofarinstitute.org.
