Professor Julian Evans – A talk on God’s Trees (click here for more details)Sunday | 16:30 - 17:15 , Duration: 00:45
God’s Trees - Trees, forests and wood in the Bible An inspiring talk simply like no other, certainly not dry botany!
The 45 minute presentation takes seven very contrasting topics around the general theme of trees in the Bible:
1: Zaccheus and the sycamore-fig tree,
2: The curious incident where Moses purified bitter water,
3: Importing cedar of Lebanon for Solomon's great temple,
4: The worship of foreign gods 'under every spreading tree',
5: What we learn from the recently discovered 1st century fishing boat in Galilee,
6: The crown of thorns,
7: the wood of the Cross.
Forest scientist and author Professor Julian Evans weaves in something of his Christian faith as well as delivering an engaging presentation.
Audience response, whether Christian or secular, has been very encouraging.
