Richard Hays – “Turning the World Upside-Down…”

I had previously announced that Richard B Hays (Duke) will be giving the first annual CK BARRETT Lecture at the University of Durham on November 5.  Indeed, Barrett, who is now 91, is expected to be in attendance.  The title has now been announced: “Turning the World Upside-Down: Israel’s Scripture in Luke-Acts.”  Also, Hays will be giving the guest lecture in our weekly New Testament seminar two days earlier (Nov 3, my birthday) with the title: “Hidden in order to be Revealed: Jesus as the God of Israel in Mark’s Gospel.”
