Logos hosts Pastorum Live, June 5–6, in Chicago, IL. This is no ordinary conference. Pastorum features 21 evangelical scholars known for publishing academic commentaries, monographs, and Biblical language grammars.
This conference is like Disneyland for me, a seminary student and scholar-in-training. It would be impossible to do justice to each of the speakers and their topics here; therefore, let me highlight a few lectures that I am excited about.
Craig Keener: “Across Cultures, Across Centuries”
Professor of New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary, Craig Keener is the author of The Historical Jesus of the Gospels, Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts, and commentaries on the Gospel of Matthew, the Gospel of John, Romans, 1–2 Corinthians, and Revelation. More than any other scholar I have read, Dr. Keener illuminates the culture and text of the New Testament with his encyclopedic grasp of first-century Greco-Roman writings. I am excited to hear what he has to share with Pastorum attendees!
Nicholas Perrin: “Jesus, the Kingdom, and the Church”
Nicholas Perrin is the Franklin S. Dyrness professor of biblical studies at Wheaton. Dr. Perrin is an expert on the apocryphal Gospel of Thomas, having written a both a dissertation and a more popular work on the subject. Dr. Perrin’s latest book is entitled Jesus the Temple. I am looking forward to Dr. Perrin’s lecture, “Jesus, the Kingdom, and the Church.”
Mark Strauss: “Use and Abuse of Biblical Languages in Teaching and Preaching”
Mark Strauss is the professor of New Testament at Bethel Seminary. He is the author of Four Portraits, One Jesus and The Davidic Messiah in Luke-Acts: The Promise and Its Fulfillment in Lukan Christology. Dr. Strauss has been heavily involved with the NIV, serving as the vice chair of the Committee for Bible Translations as well as associate editor for the NIV Study Bible. With over 20 years of teaching experience, Dr. Strauss is more than capable of lecturing on the best practices for using Greek and Hebrew from the pulpit and lectern.
This is just a taste of what you can expect at Pastorum. If you look at the list of Pastorum Live speakers, you’ll see a hand-picked and diverse collection of experts who will help boost your understanding of the Bible from beginning to end.
