"These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all
readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so." - Acts 17:11
12 years ago, Asish met similar Berean Christians in Bangalore, India who taught him to study and search the
Bible to find out whether these things were so. Since then he has an intense desire to study and correctly interpret
scripture to bring glory to God. He upholds 2 Timothy 3:16 and finds the entire Bible as divinely inspired and
profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
In 2010, he moved to the Pacific Northwest and has been working for Microsoft as a Software Engineer ever
since. Besides computers, he enjoys going on long rides on his bicycle and enjoys taking photographs of the
beautiful Pacific Northwest.
He and his wife (Niru) are blessed with two young children. He along with his family fellowship with the saints
at Northgate Gospel Chapel, Seattle where he teaches the Bible periodically, co-leads the Men's meeting and the
2019 Conference Topics
1. "I am of Paul...I am of Apollos" (1 Corinthians 3:4)
Paul warns Corinthians of sectarianism yet today many of us are guilty of following certain
preachers and thus likely to adopt their interpretation of Bible which in turn leads to strife and divisions. In
this session, we will look at some examples of how these bias towards certain ideologies have led to incorrect
interpretation of certain scriptures and some practical ways to prevent bias when studying the Bible.
2. "and the scripture cannot be broken" (John 10:35)
Jesus quoted the Old Testament invariably in His preaching and emphasized on how the Old
Testament witnesses of Him. Paul, Peter and the author of Hebrews did not hesitate to use Old Testament types to
explain the new and have under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit drawn from the Old Testament for our benefit.
So, we will examine some of these Old Testament quotations and derive principles that will help in our understanding
and interpretation of Scripture.
