International Biblical scholar Jacques Doukhan will present this year’s Heubach Lecture Saturday, February 19 at 5:00 P.M. at Pacific Union College’s Scales Chapel. The topic of Doukahn’s presentation will be “Affirming Creation: More than ‘not Evolution.’”

Doukhan is a professor of Hebrew and Old Testament exegesis at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary and director of the Institute for Jewish-Christian Studies at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Mich. He holds an M.A. in Hebrew language and literature from the Adventist Seminary in Collonges; a Ph.D. in the same field from the University of Strasbourg; a Th.D. in Biblical studies and systematic theology from Andrews University; and an M.A. in Egyptology from the University of Montpellier.

He has published ten books, including Genesis Creation Story: Its Literary Structure; Drinking at the Sources; Daniel, The Vision of the End; Hebrew for Theologians; Secrets of Daniel: A Jewish Prince in Exile; Secrets of Revelation: The Apocalypse Through Hebrew Eyes; Israel and the Church: Two Voices for the Same God; Mystery of Israel; and Ecclesiastes: All Is Vanity.

 The Heubach Lectureship Series was founded in 1998 to honor PUC religion professor Paul C. Heubach. The lectureship, which is funded by friends of the professor, aims to examine the great central truths of Christianity in light of the character of God by using simple language—“in terms understood where people live.” The goal for each lecture is to leave the listener with a clearer comprehension of God, and thus with more confidence in Him.
