Posted on 22 February 2012

In terms of the memorandum of agreement that was closed in May 2011 between UP and the Presbyterian Theological Seminary (PTS) - the theological school of the Cameroon Christian University - Prof Ernest van Eck visited Kumba from 4 to 11 February 2012, during which time he presented a module in New Testament studies, which forms part of the MTh programme.

The module focused on the interpretation of the parables of Jesus. Students were informed about the interpretation history of the parables of Jesus as well as the latest exegetical approaches and methods used with these interpretations.

According to the six MTh students of the 2012 class of the PTS, this module opened their eyes to new interpretations of the parables which will help them immensely to teach the parables of Jesus in a Cameroonian context.
