The Lord is Risen – He is Risen Indeed! (The road to Emmaus encounter)

Extracts from an article published in the 2019-2020 Haddington House Journal by Dr. Manfred W. Kohl about the road to Emmaus encounter.

…. The Lord went with the two travelers, guiding them into all truth. He presented a comprehensive view of all Messianic prophesies and their fulfillment. Jesus thus declared that he was the heart of the Old Testament Scripture.

… he was the substance of every Old Testament sacrifice ordained in the Messianic law…

… he was the true deliverer and king…
… he was the coming prophet, the true high priest… … he was, and he is, the key to all of Scripture….

Reflection and Application

Jesus demonstrates that he is closer to his people than they will ever know; he has time to listen…

Jesus demonstrates that he is able to fill us with his presence if we are empty vessels…

Jesus demonstrates that he himself is the key to all Scripture; when he speaks our hearts are on fire…

Jesus demonstrates that he is the first, the last, the living one; there is none like him…

Jesus demonstrates that prayer/blessing and breaking/sharing are inseparable – biblical stewardship…

Jesus demonstrates that to know him means to serve him faithfully and with integrity…

Jesus demonstrates that life with him is everything, and he invites you and me to participate…

And it all began with a simple dialogical prayer.

Soli Deo Gloria.

Amen

Haddington House Spring 2019 Newsletter

Dear Friends,

We are in Africa as we send out this Spring Newsletter but wanted to send it out now as so much seems to be happening. May you be blessed as you read and pray that the work of the Lord’s Kingdom may continue to advance. The Lord has shown His mercy in so many ways. We look forward to sharing these testimonies starting next month.

Yours in the Lord, Jack Whytock, Director

Haddington House Fall 2018 Newsletter now out *updated*

… updated Oct. 26, 2018 to fix link to Newsletter.

Click here for the Fall 2018 Newsletter.

Dear Friends,

It has been a busy summer and autumn thus far due to travels throughout North America (and also in the UK) to speak with many about the ongoing need for theological training (15 churches in total). Many congregations have been most welcoming and have affirmed their partnership in this very important ministry of the Word of God. One focus of discussion has been on the call for indigenous theological education and a call to co-labour with the global church. There have been a few good smiles concerning the analogy I have been using about raising children. Special thanks to Donnie Frizell for a good discussion about that! Also, thank you to all who have been so kind and welcoming. Along the way, there was also opportunity to speak at and participate in two conferences, and that was most stimulating.

 

You will notice with this newsletter that we have retooled our Haddington House logo in an effort to update a little. Next year is our 25th year and we are busy thinking about that.

 

Our newsletter this autumn focuses on introducing the 2018 Journal, the book project which is being worked on right now – Voices of Thanksgiving, updates on projects at one of the overseas partners— Dumisani Theological Institute, and the fall teaching schedule (which is very limited this year as many of you will know) and an update about Nancy. I will not be teaching the master’s courses at Africa Reformation Theological Seminary, Kampala, Uganda this year but am planning to teach there in November, 2019. Thanks to Dr. Charles Jackson for taking my courses there this year at ARTS so that I can be home more with Nancy while she is not able to travel to Africa. Good things are happening at ARTS; it is so encouraging to see this seminary advancing the Kingdom by training many in the Word.

 

Yours in the Lord, Jack Whytock, Director
