The Institute of Lutheran Theology in partnership with Ingham Okoboji Lutheran Bible Camps is proud to announce its 2016 Summer Theological Conference - “The Psalms Christologically”. This three day conference will be held on June 6th - June 8th at the Ingham Okoboji Lutheran Bible Camp located on Iowa’s beautiful West Lake Okoboji.
This conference will take us into the Psalms and the richness they bring to Jesus’ significance and to our lives as Christians in the 21st century.The Psalms take up a significant amount of space in the Old Testament, and most scholars recognize the influence of the Psalms on the New Testament writers. As Luke 24:44 points out, the Psalms witness to Jesus and provide a deep well of rich material that can inform how we understand Jesus and our lives as people “in Christ.”
Speakers will include Kyle Fever, Ingham Okobojis’s Director of Beyond Ministries and ILT faculty member, Rev. Mark Hillmer. Both of these presentations will cover topics involving Jesus and his fulfillment of the Psalms as well as exploring the ways the New Testament use the Psalms as worship literature and how they can provide added dimensions to our expressions of Jesus’ significance, beyond the paradigm of prophecy and fulfillment.
The conference is held at Okoboji Lutheran Bible Camp in northwest Iowa. Okoboji is a wonderful place to get away for fellowship and enjoyment of the outdoors. The camp is a retreat-style camp provides comfortable and up-to-date hotel-style rooms, as well as cabins, and other amenities for conference-goers.
