Dr. Joel Okamoto, the Waldemar and Mary Griesbach Professor of Systematic Theology, recently taught “Theology of Scripture” at the graduate school of Seminário Concórdia in São Leopoldo, Brazil. The class included 21 students – all of whom are pastors from Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Paraguay. Lucas Becker, former Concordia Seminary exchange student, and George Felten, an M.A. student at Concordia Seminary, translated the class. Seminário Concórdia is the theological institution of the Igreja Evangélica Luterana do Brasil (IELB), a partner church of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.
