Synoptic Gospels

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Study of the Synoptic Gospels is critical for a literate understanding of religious discussions and imperatives in today's world. Proposals from all perspectives and academic methods as they pertain to the synoptic gospels are welcome and will be scheduled in four categories: the first will focus on Mark, the second on Matthew, the third on Luke, and the last on the comparative analysis of two or more of the synoptics. While all topics are welcome, the subject of poverty in the synoptics is especially encouraged. Global issues of poverty are at a crisis state and the world of biblical scholarship needs to continue to be even more involved as advocates for a biblical literacy that places the impoverished and marginalized at center stage for study and action. Please indicate in your proposal which category your paper will fit best.
