The Tyndale New Testament Study Group looking at the Later Pauline Epistles will be taking place online this year, from
Wednesday 23rd to Friday 25th June.
We have a great line-up of international speakers offering some fascinating papers, and the sessions will be timed to allow attendance from different time zones around the world.
The cost for the whole of the conference is only £25; for an additional £10 you can attend other Tyndale study groups; and the annual Tyndale lectures from the different groups are free to access.
The Tyndale lecture on the New Testament will be given by Dr Elizabeth Shively on The Textual Construction of Early Christian Identity in Cognitive Perspective: Philemon as a Test Case.
Dr Elizabeth Shively (BA, MDiv, ThM, PhD, FHEA) is Senior Lecturer in New Testament Studies, Director of Teaching, School of Divinity, St Mary’s College, University of St Andrews. Dr Shively came to St Andrews in 2012, having previously taught at Wheaton College, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Candler School of Theology, and having served six years in pastoral ministry.
