The Holy Spirit is described in the New Testament as the ‘end times’ gift of God to his people, in fulfilment of Old Testament hope and promise, and as his empowering presence for his people in their life, ministry, and witness. But different writers emphasise the Spirit in different ways, and describes the Spirit’s role from various perspectives.
The theme for the Tyndale Fellowship New Testament Study Group in 2023 is The Holy Spirit in the New Testament, and we are meeting from Wednesday 5th to Friday 7th July 2023.
We welcome proposals of up to 200 words for papers on topics relating to the theme, which could include (but are not limited to):
- The depiction of the Spirit in particular NT text or group of texts;
- exploration of particular key texts relating the the Spirit;
- theological themes relation to the person and work of the Spirit across the NT;
- engagement with contemporary discussion of the Spirit arising from key NT texts;
- issues in the recent scholarship relating to the Spirit and the New Testament.
We are anticipating that, depending on the range of subjects covered, the papers might well form the core of a publication following the conference.
We also welcome proposals for papers on any NT topic for an open session. Paper titles and proposals should be sent to the group’s co-chair, Nick Moore ([email protected]), by Friday 16th December 2022.
We plan to publish the full programme in the new year.
