NT & Second Temple Judaism

Call for Papers: 2017

The NT and Second Temple Judaism Seminar will have three sessions in 2017, two invited and one open-call. There will be a session on current research in Qumran studies, with papers from Timothy Lim, Joan Taylor, and Benjamin Wold. We will also have a book review session on Matthew Novenson's The Grammar of Messianism (OUP, 2017) with panelists including Philip Alexander and Grant Macaskill. For the open-call session, we invite papers on any aspect of the study of NT and ancient Judaism, including but not limited to social history, material remains, Apocrypha, Pseudepigrapha, Qumran, Philo, Josephus, and the rabbis. Interested parties should email paper proposals to both co-chairs.
