    The Cities of Refuge – Dr. John Smith (Old Testament)

    Why did the Lord give his people these cities?  Where were they?  And why could an accused murderer only go free after the high priest died?

    Sermon Session – Dr. Arjan de Visser (Ministry & Mission)

    Would you like an impression of what happens during the weekly “preaching practice” class, or Sermon Session, as we call it? A student will present the introduction, as well as theme and division of his sermon proposal.  After this the professor will evaluate and point how he should improve.

    Thesis Defence FriSaturday – Dr. Jason Van Vliet (Dogmatics)

    Every Friday students engage in a (usually) vigorous debate about the finer points of doctrine.  Today two students will be on the hot seat.  You, too, can join the debate… even though it’s Saturday.

    The Guanabara Confession – Dr. Theodore Van Raalte (Ecclesiology)

    Imagine you are a 21-year-old knife-maker, and one of the first Reformed believers to reach the Americas. Could you write a confession of faith, under the threat of death? Come and hear this true story.
