SBL San Diego

The program for the upcoming SBL conference has now been online (  One of the unfortunate scheduling issues is that even though the conference technically begins on Nov. 17, there are a good number of sessions on the 16th that I wasn’t aware of when I booked my flight.  One session, in particular, appears very promising, but I fear many will miss it because they, like I, assumed that the sessions would actually fall within the dates they advertised.  Note:

The Faith of Jesus Christ: Exegetical, Biblical and Theological Studies
12:30 PM to 5:30 PM
Room: 28 A – CCMichael Bird, Highland Theological College
The Faith of Jesus Christ: Problems and Prospects (15 min)
Joel Willitts, North Park University
The Saving Value of “Faithfulness” in Jewish Traditions (30 min)
Stanley Porter, McMaster Divinity College
Lexical and Semantic Reflections on Pistis (30 min)
Douglas Campbell, Duke University
The Faithfulness of Jesus Christ in Romans and Galatians (30 min)
Preston Sprinkle, Aberdeen University

Oh well.  Maybe someone out there can record the session and send me an MP3?? 🙂

  1. […] The program guide for the Society of Biblical Literature 2007 Annual Meeting is now available: here. I haven’t had a chance to plot out my schedule yet, but as usual there seems to be a number of good sessions. Of course, this year’s SBL will be held in beautiful San Diego, so at least we can expect some nice weather as well. This is also a good time to make plans for visiting In-N-Out, which has the best burgers of its kind. [HT: Nijay K Gupta] […]
