TruthTalks: Introduction to Captivated by Jesus

Last week we started the “Captivated by Jesus” series. Below is the audio version of the post.

For those of you not yet along for the ride, get on board as this is a 12-week series, with Dr Christopher Peppler sharing his thoughts on different “attributes” of Jesus and then relating a personal story on where he has seen Jesus show this “attribute” in his life.  The other part of this series consists of Lance (Chris’s son) interviewing Christian thought leaders from around the world on their thoughts on Jesus and his position in the church.

So step up and subscribe to the podcast HERE or simply click the play button below to listen to it. We are looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this generational discussion which should give plenty of food for thought and nourishment for the soul.

As always, please share with those who need to hear it, help us get the word out, because Truth… IS the Word.

TruthTalks: Jesus’ Letter to us Bergamites

Top Image

Last week, Dr Christopher Peppler wrote THIS POST about how Revelation 2 and 3 record seven letters that Jesus dictated to seven existing churches in Turkey. One of those letters was to Pergamum (AKA Bergame) and applies equally to us. Jesus outlines the conditions he found in the church of Pergamum and it is a reality that we need to look at in our churches, and ourselves, to this day.

Listen to Dr Peppler as he expands on some of the infiltration tactics being used today to weaken the church, and how to defeat them. This was a sermon shot from his home and if you prefer to watch it you can do so HERE.

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.
