Looking Forward to These SBL Sessions – Sun Nov 23 (Gupta)

Here are my picks for Sun Nov 23:

Notes:

(1) All are welcome to the IBR worship service – Mark Strauss is the preacher.

(2) 9AM session – Pauline Soteriology or Paul and Bultmann??? I can’t decide! I will probably go to the former because the later is being published as a book.

(3) 1PM session – I will be at the Gorman review session. But sad to miss hearing Wright in the Paul session.

(4) 4PM session – Please come to my paper on Pistis in 1 Thess!

GOCN Forum on Missional Hermeneutics
11/23/2014
4:00 PM to 6:30 PM
Room: Room 8 (Upper level) – San Diego Convention Center (CC)

Theme: Reflecting on Paul and Missional Hermeneutics: A Conversation with N. T. Wright
In “Paul and the Faithfulness of God,” N. T. Wright identifies three major motifs that characterize the heart of Paul’s theology, focusing on the one God of Israel, the people of God, and God’s future for the world. This dynamic interaction between theology, ecclesiology, and eschatology has been a major and recurring interest in the work of the GOCN Forum on Missional Hermeneutics as well. In this session, Wright will draw together themes from his treatment of Paul that focus upon and illumine specifically the sense of the mission in which the people of God are called to participate. How does this mission originate in the Bible’s portrayal of who God is and what God is up to? How does this mission reshape the way we think about what it means to be the people of God? And how does this mission shape the hope to which we are called? Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating panel discussion (featuring biblical scholars N. T. Wright, Sylvia Keesmaat, Michael J. Gorman, and James V. Brownson) and open conversation about the missiological dimensions of Paul’s theology in Wright’s work.
