New Testament Textual Criticism

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The NTTC Section welcomes papers on all aspects relating to the textual criticism of the New Testament for its two open panels, especially those which feature the exegesis of textual variants or the role of exegesis in textual criticism. The Section is also sponsoring an invited panel on a “post mortem” of the announcement of a “first-century” fragment of Mark and its publication as a second- to third-century papyrus in the Oxyrhynchus collection. The Section is also co-sponsoring two joint sessions in 2019: (1) with the Synoptic Gospels section for an invited review panel for Matthew D. C. Larsen’s new book The Gospels Before the Book; and (2) with the John’s Apocalypse Section for an invited session that will focus on text critical issues relating to John’s Apocalypse.
