Requirements for Participation

Theology of the Hebrew Scriptures

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Theology of Hebrew Scriptures section will be running three sessions in 2008. We invite papers to an open session of Theology of Hebrew Scriptures. This session will give participants the opportunity to share new work of a distinctively theological nature on the Hebrew Scriptures. The second session will be the first of a 3 year series of conversations between Christian and Jewish biblical theologians on a pre-set selection of theological themes and topics. In 2008 we will have an invited panel that will help us consider how our respective communities understand the nature of covenant. Participants for this session are by invitation only. A third session will be an open session for which submissions exploring biblical theology (broadly defined) as it relates to disability, healthcare, and the body are encouraged. This session will be co-sponsored with the Disability Studies and Healthcare in the Bible and Near East section. Questions about these sessions should be addressed to either Juliana Claassens or Esther Hamori.
