DFW Conference on Reformed Theology


At the final Passover Feast of Jesus’ earthly ministry, the Lord said, “The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified” (John 12:23). That hour began with the triumphal entry into Jerusalem and concluded with his victory over death at the resurrection. The events of that Holy Week deserve careful consideration, for it was eight days that changed the world, bringing glory to God in Jesus Christ.

Join us at the inaugural DFW Conference on Reformed Theology as we contemplate five of the incidents of Jesus’ final hour as recorded in Matthew’s Gospel. Dr. John Fesko and Dr. James Renihan will preach about the Triumphal Entry, Jesus’ confrontations with his enemies, prayers and denials, crucifixion and resurrection.

Our goal is to remember and understand Jesus’ work, grow in faith and love because of it, and rejoice in His splendor. Will you seek His glory with us?


Dr. John V. Fesko is the Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi. Prior to joining RTS, Fesko served as the Academic Dean and Professor of Systematic Theology and Historical Theology at Westminster Seminary California (WSC). He has also labored as a church planter in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and as the minister of Geneva Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Marietta, Ga. John and his wife, Anneke, have three children.
