Eckhard Schnabel hired as new Rockefeller Chair of NT at Gordon-Conwell

It was announced today that Eckhard Schnabel (Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) has been named Mary F Rockefeller Distinguished Prof of NT at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. This post was previously held by Scott Hafemann. I think he will fit in quite well at GCTS. The announcement is here.

Festschrift conference for Anthony Thiselton

Do you know about the tribute conference for Biblical scholar Anthony Thiselton at Nottingham, June 29, 2012? Speakers include Stanley Porter, Walter Moberly, Richard Briggs, Matthew Malcolm, James Dunn, Robert Morgan, Tom Greggs, and Thiselton himself. I wish I could be there!

My first interaction with Thiselton’s work was in seminary where Dr. Sean McDonough assigned us his massive NIGTC commentary on 1 Corinthians – rather overwhelming, but very good material. He also appears frequently in the Bibledex videos that I regularly use in my Scripture course.

If you are in the UK during this conference, it would certainly be worth the trip to Nottingham! By the way – it is also a celebration of his 75th birthday!
