Craig Blomberg in Birmingham!

One of my professors, Dr Craig Blomberg, will be in Birmingham this week (my hometown!) to lecture on parables at Beeson Divinity School.  See below for info:

Beeson Divinity School is pleased to welcome Dr. Craig Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of New Testament at Denver Seminary, who will present the twentieth annual Biblical Studies Lectures on our campus next week.  His theme for these lectures is “Interpreting and Proclaiming Jesus’ Parables in the Twenty-first Century.”  Dr. Blomberg will preach on Tuesday, April 14, and will lecture on Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., and again on Thursday at 11:00 a.m.  Each of these events will take place in Andrew Gerow Hodges Chapel.  Professor Blomberg received the Ph.D. in New Testament Studies at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland .  He has written or edited fifteen books including Contagious Holiness: Jesus’s Meals With Sinners; Neither Poverty or Riches: A Biblical Theology of Possessions; and From Pentecost to Patmos: An Introduction to Acts Through Revelation. Perhaps he is best known for his important study, The Historical Reliability of the Gospels, now recently revised in a twenty-first century edition.  You are warmly invited to meet Professor Blomberg and hear his lectures. Each session takes place in Hodges Chapel on the campus of Samford University and is open to the public at no charge. For more information, please email Lee Hansen or call (205) 726-2731.

    I’m happy to hear that Dr. Blomberg is coming to Beeson. I graduated from Beeson in 2000 and had a great experience there. I’m sure these will be great lectures on Jesus’ parables. My wife and I enjoyed living in Hoover (near the Galleria) and we still miss a lot of things about Birmingham. Thanks for the update!

    Hey Chris! Thanks for stopping by. I stopped by your site and really liked it. Did you study philosophy at Talbot? I almost went there for philosophy but came to Denver Seminary instead to study New Testament with Blomberg. Cheers!

    Hi Clinton,

    Yes, I did a Th.M. degree there with an emphasis in philosophy. I had an ethics class with Dr. Scott Rae back then and we used Dr. Blomberg’s book Neither Poverty nor Riches as one of our texts. I like what you guys are doing on your blog. Very interesting topics!
    Take care,
