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.
This year’s NT Study Group will be meeting at Tyndale House from 27th to 29th June 2018 (one week earlier than in previous years). The study group is a great opportunity to engage with the best of evangelical scholarship, and to meet other scholars from around the world. One of those attending last year commented:
I thoroughly recommend the conference as an opportunity to do serious biblical reflection in a faith-filled context.
(You can read his full reflection here).
