Building on the success of the Symposium on the Johannine Epistles, hosted by Mercer in 2010, and the conference on C.H. Dodd and Raymond E. Brown, hosted by St. Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore in 2013, the McAfee School of Theology at Mercer University is pleased to announce a conference on “John and Judaism,” that will begin with dinner on Wednesday, November 18, and end at noon on Friday, November 20.
Following the keynote address by Prof. Jan van der Watt on Wednesday evening, the conference will address three topics: (1) John as a Source for Understanding Judaism (Thursday morning), (2) aposynagogos? Reappraising John’s Relationship to Judaism (Thursday afternoon and evening); and (3) Reading John as Jews and Christians (Friday morning). Major papers will be presented by Craig R. Koester, Adele Reinhartz, Craig A. Evans, and Reimund Bieringer, and nine short papers, three on each topic, will fill out the program.
