CBA Annual Meeting

Tomorrow I am participating in the annual meeting of the Catholic Biblical Association. This is my first time attending the conference, but I am anticipating a good time. I am giving a paper on "The lost sheep of the house of Israel" from Matthew's Gospel. This is the topic of my Ph.D. disseration so I am excited about test driving my hypothesis. As promised, I will blog on this next week.

I am also participating in a documentary produced by a company called Paulinst Productions. They are interviewing some NT scholars on the topics of Satan and Messianic prophecy. This is the first time I have done anything like this so I am more than alittle fearful. I am afraid I will not be erudite enough or worse say someting inaccurate or incorrect. I am, however, grateful for such an interesting opportunity. If you think about it, I would covet your prayers. Thanks.

Let us know when it comes out, and under what title!

[and it's "erudite"].

You'll love the CBA. It's been one of my favorites (when I've had time to go).

Catholic Scholars show great hospitality in my experience. The College Theology Society here in the U.S. (founded by Catholics and over 99% Catholic, although the bylaws allow others to join) has often held joint meetings with the National Association of Baptist Professors of Religion (NABPR, which also allows other to join) and I found those discussions and dialogues and even arguments so much more helpful than anything at the AAR where theology is marginalized.

I'll be praying for you to do well, be confident, and enjoy the whole thing. Peace.
