Daily Gleanings (14 June 2019)

Asbury Theological Seminary recorded recent a biblical studies seminar on the New Perspective on Paul. The primary faculty participants were Joseph Dongell, Ben Witherington, and Craig Keener.

The session flows through the two following recordings. The New Perspective discussion starts at approximately the 4:00-mark in the first recording.

Update: Unfortunately, the video embedding I attempted previously in this post didn’t work out as it had looked to. The links to the relevant pages on Vimeo’s website are:

Through June 16, Ben Witherington’s What’s in the Word: Rethinking the Socio-Rhetorical Character of the New Testament (Baylor, 2009) is available for free from Logos Bible Software.

In sum, “Expanding on the work in which he has been fruitfully engaged for over a quarter century, Witherington challenges the previously assured results of historical criticism and demonstrates chapter by chapter how the socio-rhetorical study shifts the paradigm.” The volume discusses concerns related to orality and canon, and includes several chapters treating particular texts or phrases within the New Testament.
