I have learned a key to teaching truth and loving well is the word “and.” It is not possible to teach truth well without loving well and vice versa. It is our responsibility to invest time and effort diligently in knowing God and living His Word. This process produces changes that lead to loving the things that God loves; his church and those who do not know Him.
I learned that being like Jesus means getting your hands dirty outside the classroom. You cannot be a disciple of Jesus and only feed your mind. From Greek and Hebrew professors navigating through textual issues with the hearts of pastors, to counseling and pastoral professors teaching us how to love and care for people with the minds of theologians, I am indebted to the warm hearts and sharp minds of the DTS faculty.
Dr. Abraham Kuruvilla will speak at this year’s W.H. Griffith-Thomas Lecture Series.
