The Great Victory

The Great Victory

I had the privilege of preaching at our local church on Resurrection Sunday and I picked up on the victorious aspect of the Cross and the empty tomb.

It is quite easy to miss this aspect when we read the Gospel accounts but not when we read Paul’s letter to the Colossians.

My sermon was a partial exposition of Colossians 2:13-15 and I linked it to the portion of Revelation Chapter Twelve that I covered in my last post in the Revelation Revisited series. I think you will appreciate this message in a brief pause from the Revelation Revisited series this week, so please click on the play button below to hear the sermon. The another link is to the sermon notes in case you would like them as well.

Next week I will return to Revelation Chapter Twelve. Be blessed.

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.
