Old Testament scholar to speak Monday in Chautauqua

CHAUTAUQUA – The Rev. Kathie Kuhn, professor of Old Testament studies and dean of students at Hosanna Bible Training Center in Macedonia, Ohio, will speak Monday from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Hall of Philosophy in Chautauqua Institution. The Rev. Kuhn’s topic is “Experiencing the Table of the Lord in Passover Mysteries.”

One of the most dearly held sacraments of the Christian faith is The Table of the Lord, also known as The Eucharist, Holy Communion and The Lords Supper. It is cherished in the heart of every Christian, regardless of denomination, and rightfully so. Kuhn’s speech will reflect on the question, “Do we understand that it is at this Table that we see the antitypical fulfillment of the historical and typical Passover in the nation of Israel?” In this presentation, history and prophecy parallel each other; type and antitype remarkably correspond together. The Apostle Paul in one summarized verse proclaims, “For even Christ our Passover was sacrificed for us.”

Those attending will gaze on this breathtaking Passover panorama which is referred to as the first preaching of the Gospel of Christ. Come, look closely at the unmistakable, intricate details that impact both Testaments, examined through story, proclamation and visual elements.

An ordained minister, Kuhn is an international speaker and has served for 28 years as Associate Pastor of Faith Fellowship Church where she directs Pastoral Care, Small Group Ministries, Leadership, and Missions Departments. Kuhn is a graduate of Hosanna Bible Training Center in Macedonia, Ohio. She also graduated from Emerge Ministries’ three year pastoral training program.

More recently, Kuhn graduated from Ashland Theological Seminary’s Pastors of Excellence Program and now serves as a mentor as well as teacher in those ongoing national outreaches. Kuhn is currently authoring a manuscript on the Covenants of God, which has been her life’s work for three decades.

For more than 40 years, Kuhn has highly valued biblical education and delights in teaching God’s Word around the globe. She is spiritual director and mentor to many whose highest joy is seeing God heal hearts and change lives through formational prayer. Her students and friends repeatedly describe her ministry as transforming and life-changing.

Kuhn is a widowed mother of seven whose hobbies include gardening, reading and enjoying her 14 grandchildren.

All are welcome to attend Monday’s program sponsored by Chautauqua Christian Fellowship and co-sponsored by the Chautauqua Department of Religion. There is a fee to enter Chautauqua Institution and a parking fee. There is no extra charge to attend Kuhn’s program once inside Chautauqua Institution.
