TruthTalks Sermon: Things we Don’t Know we Don’t Know

Top Image

When it comes to understanding the bible, we sometimes encounter things we don’t know we don’t know.

Because we do not live in early church times, we sometimes don’t appreciate the different cultural and religious contexts of scripture. It is hard for us to grasp the things that the people of Jesus’ day would have readily understood.

In this TruthTalk Dr Peppler gives an example from John 6:1-15 and then explains what we should do when we come to a part of the biblical text where we suspect that we just don’t know what we don’t know.

This sermon is both interesting and spiritually inspirational. If you want to share it with your friends and family then please do so by simply clicking on one or more of the social media icons at the foot of this post.

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.
