Requirements for Participation

Biblical Ethics

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Call for papers: This year we will have one methodological session (on the “Implicit Ethics” approach presented by Ruben Zimmermann) and two thematic sessions. We invite paper proposals for the two thematic sections: 1. Justice and Mercy; and 2. Law and Love. Potential presenters are expected to investigate the relationship between these complementary terms/concepts. This should not only include general suggestions regarding their respective relationships but also provide a discussion of specific biblical texts. Presenters are encouraged to look at similarities and differences between the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament or between one of the two Testaments and relevant extra-biblical material that sheds light on the subject.
