Upcoming Erasmus Conference at Houston Baptist University: February 25-27

The 2016 Theology Conference at Houston Baptist University in Houston, Texas will be held on February 25-27, 2016.  The theme is Ad Fontes, Ad Futura:  Erasmus' Bible and the Impact of Scripture.  The conference is co-sponsored by the Dunham Bible Museum.  The conference theme is in recognition of the 500th anniversary of the publication of Erasmus' Novum Testamentum, which provided the first print edition of the Greek New Testament (1516).  This edition became the mother of the Textus Receptus tradition.

Keynote speakers are Timothy George, Daniel B. Wallace, Craig A. Evans, and Herman Selderhuis.

DV, I will also be presenting a paper at the conference on "John Calvin and Text Criticism."  I look forward to attending the conference and will plan to post some reports on the blog.

Hey Pastor Jeff,

Glad to hear you're coming to the Free Republic of Texas! I don't know that I can swing going to the conference, but I'd love to make the drive to hear you speak as well as get some time to sit down and fellowship with you over a meal or something.

God Bless!

Good to hear from you and looking forward to visiting the Lone Star state. Don't know how far you are from Houston, but I would be glad to join you for a meal if we can arrange it. I plan to attend the whole conference. My paper will be in the 2:30 pm session on Friday afternoon (2.26). HBU has now posted a more detailed schedule so you can see all the sessions and topics. I'll try to post this to the blog also.

Grace, JTR
