The Jewish-Christian Dialogue and Sacred Texts consultation is hosting an open session in Atlanta (Nov. 21-24, 2015). We invite students and scholars who are invested in Jewish and Christian wellbeing to submit abstracts on topics related to Jewish or Christian sacred texts.
Unit description: This unit explores issues related to the interpretation of sacred texts, with a view toward contemporary Jewish-Christian dialogue. It aims to foster biblical scholarship and pedagogy that is informed by and nurtures dialogue and to provide venues for discussion between the traditions on sacred scriptures.This session is not themed, but all presentations must relate to contemporary Jewish-Christian relations. Some of our previous papers have dealt with our difference(s) in representations, teaching strategies, hermeneutics, and distinctive contexts of sacred texts.
Call For Papers Closes: 3/5/2015
This session is always the highlight of my SBL experience.
