Institut zur Erforschung des Urchristentums

Tonight, I will be presenting a paper at the Institut zur Erforschung des Urchristentums in the Theologicum in Tübingen, and all manner of highly learned listeners will attend. Hopefully.

I am also trusting that it will lead to some interesting and useful debate, especially as I have an hour to make the presentation, and an additional hour for discussion afterwards.

Naturally, I will keep an open mind - but the bottom-line is, of course, obviously, that my argument is and will remain absolutely correct and beyond reproach …

Hope that goes well for you . . . If I hear of German rioting in Tübingen on national news, I'll pray for you.

To include a Blackadderism: considering that your debating opponents will be obese, sausage scoffing, beer guzzling, short-green-pants-wearing-thigh-slapping Germans you have little to fear. Of course, the Teutonic reputation for brutality is well know. Their operas go for 3 days and they have no word for "fluffy"!

I want a copy of the paper. By jiminy if anyone can find a hole in it its me!

Or maybe i'll just print it out and use my hole punch on it. Either way there will be holes.

Hey, I'd also like to read that paper.

Unless it's in German. Sadly the three years that I studied German in highschool did nothing to prepare me for theological German. Damn.

Hi Chris,
Cool blog. Looking forward to having a good look through it. I hope your paper went well. Let us know how it was.

What a lot of fun that was! And Prof. Lichtenberger was a real encouragement. Honestly, there are few things I enjoy as much as an intelligent debate - especially if I’m not on the ‘oops didn’t think of that rather serious problem’ end of things. Which I thankfully wasn’t. Times like that help to keep one motivated and focused in study.

So no riots this time TB. I’ll present a paper on ‘2007 As the Definite Advent of the Lord’ next time to provoke a bit more controversy.

Mike – I know its sad, but I laugh every time Blackadder is quoted. Although, I have some troubling news for you: I was listening to this very Blackadder quote recently while watching the DVD with Anja, and she went and burst my bubble. There apparently is a German word for ‘fluffy’. Flauschig. Of course all the stuff about brutality, evil operas, beer and sausages remains absolutely true.

Jim – you are actually welcome to read the paper. Try it. *throws down the gauntlet* Go on! Try to find one single problem, just one single problem. If you succeed, I’ll give you …

… a mug (and I’ll cry)

(same goes for you, Dan [it’s in English]. Though you don’t get a mug! P.S., I loved your last post!)

Hi Lyn, I’m not sure what that means, so I’ll go have a look …

Thanks for stopping by Rory – the themes of our blog have some good overlap I think.

Okay, email the paper to me -- Glad you like the post, it seems not everybody was entirely happy with what I had to say.

Oh well.
