BNTC Durham 2008
The 2008 British NT Conference in Durham has been announced. The main papers are as folows:
Professor John M. G. Barclay
'Two Versions of Grace: Romans 9-11 and the Wisdom of Solomon'
Professor Loveday Alexander
'The Myth of the Imprisoned God: Classical Intertextualities in the Acts of the Apostles'
Professor Dale Martin
'Angels, Demons and Paul'
Dr Eddie Adams
'The Earliest Christian Meeting Places'
One thing that has puzzled a few people (myself included) is the number of main speakers. Usually there three but, clearly, the BNTC are advertising four. Nijay Gupta has pointed out why this is: the short papers are being dropped this year (just for this year?).
The seminars groups are as follows:
Book of Acts
Hermeneutics: Theory & Practice
Social World of the NT
NT & Second Temple Judaism
New Testament: Use and Influence
The Catholic Epistles
Book of Revelation
I'm still co-chairing the Jesus session and while I won't give anything away just yet, I think I can fairly say that it is looking like it is going to be a seriously good session with some very impressive speakers. But you'll just have to wait and see won't you...?
