Speaker Dr. Scott Keith
Dr. Scott Keith is Director of Operations and Scholarship for 1517 The Legacy Project, Adjunct Professor of Theology at Concordia University, Irvine. He is a Contributor to The Jagged Word, 1517 The Legacy Project and Christ Hold Fast. He is also the cohost of The Thinking Fellows podcast. He earned his doctorate from Foundation House Oxford, under the sponsorship of the Graduate Theological Foundation, studying under Dr. James A. Nestingen. Dr. Keith’s research focused on the doctrine of good works in the writings of Philip Melanchthon. His recent book, “Being Dad: Father as a Picture of God’s Grace”, explains how the graciousness and forgiveness that a good father pronounces in the home serves as a picture of God’s grace to prodigals everywhere. He is married to his wife Joy for over twenty years, has three children and two grandchildren.
The Authority of Scripture
Dr. Keith’s talks will deal with the authority and truth of scripture. This series of talks will examine these questions and try to discover what every day, yet hidden in plain sight, techniques we all use to determine if an idea is true or false. Then, we will apply these same methods to the Bible, and its teachings concerning Jesus Christ, in order to see how it and they hold up to scrutiny.”
