TruthTalks: Pentecost and Babel

Hello all,

Last week Dr Christopher Peppler opened his post on Pentecost and Babel with the following:

“…the Tower of Babel sheds wonderful light on the glory of Pentecost. My last article covered two important aspects of the Day of Pentecost: The memorial of the birth of the church and the celebration of the day that the Holy Spirit inhabited the church as the presence of God among men. The additional aspect of Pentecost I introduce in this article comes from a comparison of the Tower of Babel disaster with the triumph of Pentecost.”

On Sunday he then expanded on this face to face (mask to mask) when he preached at Lonehill Village church.

Psalm 121 Says

(1) I lift up my eyes to the hills — where does my help come from? (2) My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. (3) He will not let your foot slip — he who watches over you will not slumber; (4) indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. (5) The LORD watches over you — the LORD is your shade at your right hand; (6) the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. (7) The LORD will keep you from all harm — he will watch over your life; (8) the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

In this TruthTalks Sermon, Dr Christopher Peppler goes into this passage and looks at its meaning and what WE can take from it and use in our lives today.

TruthTalks Sermon: Perspective

The Lord Jesus gave two insignificant disciples the bible study of all bible studies while they walked together from Jerusalem to Emmaus.

He gave them perspective on the historic things happening around them and filled them with hope and courage.
The perspective he gave them is what we need in these COVID-19 days.

This is the audio track from a videoed sermon broadcast to the Lonehill Village Church on May 17th 2020 from Luke 24:13-24. Listen and share because we all need a Jesus perspective in these troubling times.

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.
