A Very Particular God

Speciel Guest: Dr Jason Byassee, Vancouver School of Theology

Sunday, December 3rd

We have all heard that God is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent and transcendently cosmic. Then how and why might God love a particular people? What if God is particular? In this talk, Dr Byassee will argue that God is Jewish, Catholic, and Pentecostal. Modernity has tried to frame humanity in universalistic terms—we are all equal, modernity insists. But the church is a people called out from all nations to be part of a Jewish body. What does that have to say about how we should think about cultures, race, gender—about humanity?
