If you are joining us on Zoom, please download Dr Orr’s notes here.
Dr Peter Orr is Lecturer in New Testament at Moore College in Sydney. He is married to Emma and they have four sons. He grew up in Northern Ireland and was converted through a combination of reading the NT and attending a Billy Graham meeting. “My early, clear experience of the power of God’s word has given me a deep conviction of the importance of Bible teaching. After university in England, I was a missionary for two years in Galaţi in Romania in the early 1990s. I studied at Moore in the mid-2000s before returning to the UK to complete a PhD at Durham University. We then moved to Melbourne where I taught at a Bible college before returning to Moore in 2014. As a family we enjoy serving together at All Saints Petersham as well as holidays at the beach. I enjoy reading biographies and fiction and listening to the music of the Gloaming.” His research interests include: the nature of the exalted Christ; work in the New Testament; and gentleness as a Christian virtue. Dr Orr is an engaging speaker and it is a great privilege to welcome him for this year’s Annual Trinity Lecture.
