Updated Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels coming in September 2013!

I was very excited to read that there is a second (revised/updated) edition of the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels coming from IVP in September 2013. These famous “black dictionaries” get tons of use by me on a constant basis. It will be nice to have an up-to-date version of the “DJG”!

What’s new about the second edition? You can read all about it in the interview with the editors contained in this newsletter.

Conference on Ecclesia and Ethics (May 18/25, all online)

I would like to bring to your attention an international Ecclesia (Church) and Ethics Conference/Webinar with NT Wright, Stanley Hauerwas, Shane Claiborne, Michael Gorman, Brian Rosner and several others: May 18 and 25. Get more info here!

This unique conference costs only $10 and the proceeds go directly to charity.

I am honored to be one of the “main speakers.” My topic will be provisionally entitled: “Did Saint Paul Take Up the Great Commission? Discipleship Transposed into a Pauline Key.”

By the way, they will also have something like “simultaneous paper” (like British NT Conference), so some of you may consider proposing a paper. See “Call for Papers” here.
