A very full academic semester has come to a close. Just in time, I would say.
This past semester I have had the chance to explore the Bauer Thesis in the Orthodoxy and Heresy seminar as well as how the Biblical writers used earlier sources in my Biblical Intertextuality seminar. In this latter class, I specifically looked how Luke used the Minor Prophets in the composition of his narrative known today as Luke-Acts. The paper I wrote in this seminar will be presented at the Thomas H. Olbricht Christians Scholars Conference (http://www.lipscomb.edu/csc), June 7-9 at Lipscomb University in Nashville.
In addition to these two seminars, I attended a reading colloquium that covered Johannine scholarship, NT theology, and linguistics. The reading colloquiums at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary are a way to expose NT students to the important literature across the field of NT study. Needless to say, it involves stacks of books.
Consequently, I have not been able to contribute much to this blog. But now that summer is here, I should be able to find some time to add to these scholia.
