Lubbock Christian University hosted the 2019 Christian Scholars’ Conference. As usual, there were a number of stimulating papers given and discussed. Most of the plenary session video recordings are now also available, and I’m sharing here those most relevant for biblical studies.
Among these was John Fitzgerald’s lecture about Greco-Roman and early Christian advice about child rearing and family life. With some definite wit, Fitzgerald narrates the life of a fictional male Roman through the various stages that cause him to encounter the different kinds of contemporary advice available on the domestic situations he faces.
Brian Daley discusses the interpretation of Christ as God’s wisdom personified in the early Greek fathers.
