How are you enjoying the Hebrews bible study? What have you learned? Has anything been put on your heart during this time that you can share with us?


Session 8 is available on YouTube from 12h00 Tuesday 5th April 2022: click this link to go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr_OkZm53OM. It is also the second last in this study, so be sure to join us for this, and the final one next week.

This session covers Hebrews Chapters 11 and 12 and it contains an important analysis of the concept of ‘faith’. What faith is and what it is not is something that has confused individuals and entire church groups.

Chapter 11 starts with: “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see”. How do YOU experience faith?

  1. I am certain that you were to ask a Sunday school class, “what is Faith?” you will get a multitude of definitions of what Faith is, and am certain as well that they will border on theological, intellectual and even emotional definition. From humbling experience, for me, Faith is the “Right” standing with God and knowing the infallible and righteous Character of God. It is knowing that the Sovereign God our Father ALWAYS knows best and what is best for us His children; indeed if we acknowledge (child-like -total dependency on Him) and accept that He is God our Omniscient Father. So , whatever we ask in Faith (For All I Trust In Him) in Christ, His Word living in us and led by His Spirit, we must then accept that no matter how earnestly we ask from Him (in His Will) and believe in Him, God has the ultimate prerogative to give or withhold as it pleases Him.
    We must never confuse presumption with Faith and it also matters not, how much we shout, name and claim and repeat God’s promises in His Word to ourselves and to each other if ‘We don’t believe in Him’, we will shout until we are blue in the face and without breath- and we will deserve that.
    Downloaded all the audio Hebrew sessions and blessed by them. Thanks again for the message.

About Me

My name is Christopher Peppler and I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1947. While working in the financial sector I achieved a number of business qualifications from the Institute of Bankers, Damelin Management School, and The University of the Witwatersrand Business School. After over 20 years as a banker, I followed God’s calling and joined the ministry full time. After becoming a pastor of what is now a quite considerable church, I  earned an undergraduate theological qualification from the Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa and post-graduate degrees from two United States institutions. I was also awarded the Doctor of Theology in Systematic Theology from the University of Zululand in 2000.

Four years before that I established the South African Theological Seminary (SATS), which today is represented in over 70 countries and has more than 2 500 active students enrolled with it. I presently play an role supervising Masters and Doctoral students.

I am a passionate champion of the Christocentric or Christ-centred Principle, an approach to biblical interpretation and theological construction that emphasises the centrality of Jesus

I have been happily married to Patricia since the age of 20, have two children, Lance and Karen, a daughter-in-law Tracey, and granddaughters Jessica and Kirsten. I have now retired from both church and seminary leadership and devote my time to writing, discipling, and the classical guitar.
