The Tyndale New Testament Study Group is part of the Tyndale Fellowship for biblical and theological research, based at Tyndale House in Cambridge, and including evangelical scholars from all over the world. I have succeeded John Nolland of Trinity Bristol as Chair of the group.
This year’s NT Study Group will be meeting on 8th to 10th July in Cambridge and will be focussing on the letter of James, though with some other papers as well. It looks like a very interesting programme; full details can be found on the Tyndale Fellowship website. Papers will include:
Professor Roland Deines (Nottingham) on ‘Can the Historical James Help us to Understand the Historical Jesus?’
Professor Richard Bauckham (St Andrews and Cambridge) on ‘Messianic Jewish Identity in James’
Professor Gary Habermas (Liberty University) on ‘The Nature of Early Christian Creedal Statements’
Dr Mariam Kamell Kovalishyn (Regent College, Vancouver) on ‘The Role of Elijah in the Letter of James’
Dr Nijay Gupta (George Fox Evangelical Seminary) on ‘Covenental Pisticism: Faith and Human Agency in Galatians’
And the Tyndale NT lecture will be given by Dr Grant Macaskill (St Andrews) on ‘Jesus, the New Testament, and Intellectual Humility’.
Do come and join us for part or all of the meeting. The study group is a great opportunity to engage with the best of evangelical scholarship, and to meet other scholars from around the world. My hope is that the group will develop further as a key support network for evangelical scholars over the next five year.
