Biblical Studies Colloquium with Bauckham

As many of you may know, Jim West and I moderate the popular Biblical Studies discussion list. At present there are almost 680 members, including quite a few well-known scholars. The discussions are usually lively and well-informed, and I personally learn a lot from the members.

And so I am delighted to announce that Richard Bauckham will be our guest on the upcoming online colloquium, to be hosted between May 20th and 26th. We will be discussing his book, Jesus and the Eyewitnesses, and invite you to join us.

Jim explains: “As in the past, we (the moderators) will collect two or three of the best questions posed by list members each day and pass them along to Professor Bauckham. He will respond and we will post his responses to the list”.

We are looking forward to this colloquium very much and hope that it generates a good bit of interesting dialogue.

In light of the upcoming colloquium, I will upload a (circa) 15 minute podcast summarising the main arguments of Bauckham’s book - for those who found my blog series on the book a tad too long!

Yo yo yo Chris!

Just a note to let you know Richard Bauckham is speaking at St And RTSF on Mon and the mp3 will probably be posted on the RTSF website... Can't remember the URL but will get back to you!

I'm glad this event on the Biblical Studies list-serv finally spurred me to join - it is long overdue!

Nice to hear from you, James! Great to see you have a blog! (I'm not sure how I missed this fact)
