Current Topics in New Testament Studies
Good afternoon! Thank you very much for joining me today for this version of the SEBTS Ph.D. colloquium. The purpose of this colloquium is to introduce Ph.D. students and faculty to current issues in NT studies. At the program director’s request, and in consultation with him, I’ve identified 4 important current issues in the field of NT studies. In what follows, I will survey each of these in order to keep students and faculty outside of the NT area (and those in biblical studies as well) abreast of new developments. In the remainder of my lecture, I’ll offer succinct 8-10-minute summaries of each of the following issues: (1) Biblical Theology (BT), (2) gender issues and biblical manhood and womanhood, (3) Pauline studies, and (4) NT Greek. After my presentation, I will entertain questions as time permits.
Note: This lecture was delivered at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC on April 19, 2018 as part of their 2018 Ph.D. Colloquium series.
