Secret Festschrift for Douglas Moo Now Presented (Gupta)

Apparently yesterday (I was not there) at the Evangelical Theological Society Douglas Moo (Wheaton) was presented with a festschrift (honorific writing). The editors (Matt Harmon and Jay Smith) and contributors did a great job of keeping this secret because details are nowhere to be found on the internet! Moo is a good guy (with whom I disagree much!), and well-deserving of this honor.

From news on Facebook, here are some details I gathered.

Studies in the Pauline Epistles, ed. Harmon and Smith, published by Zondervan.

Craig Blomberg

Come Engage with Ross Wagner on Friday at IBR/SBL on LXX and NT (Gupta)

I know there is a lot going on on Friday of SBL, but the group of the Institute for Biblical Research that I co-chair has invited Dr. Ross Wagner (Duke) to speak on the topic of the Septuagint and the New Testament. Wagner is one of the leading experts in this area and his paper is entitled: “Sanctified by the Body of Christ: Greek Scriptures in the Christian Bible.” We have two excellent respondents lined up: Dr. Robert Wall and Dr. Telford Work. We have left plenty of time after papers for discussion and engagement. This is such an important topic – come one, come all!
