The regional meeting of the SBL and AAR (SECSOR) in Greenville was highly enjoyable. My friends, Dave Kiger and Stephen Lawson, gave excellent papers in their respective sections. Dr. Rollston’s joint session with Profs. Goodacre and Tabor was stimulating as well. I have heard rumors that all three presentations from that session will be uploaded to Bible & Interp, but for now you can get a taste of the proceedings here.

My own paper in the Gospels & Acts section was quite well received and the discussion at the end was enjoyable and helpful. You can read my paper by following the link to below.
