Northern Scholars Lecture in Edinburgh

Recently I was nominated by Prof. Larry Hurtado, Head of the School of Divinity at the University of Edinburgh, for a Northern Scholars scholarship. The nomination was met with approval by the Northern Scholars Committee.

Thus, on March 9, 2009 I will give a "Northern Scholars lecture" in Edinburgh (the date on this page is wrong).

The topic will be:

"The New Testament in the "Original" Greek: Westcott and Hort Revisited"

On the same day I will also deliver a paper in the research seminar.

The last (and first) time I was in Edinburgh was at the SBL International Meeting 2006, and that was a very nice experience. I remember there was a very fine exhibition of old Bible editions just outside Larry Hurtado's office. The door to the office was so huge that Goliath could have entered without having to bend his head.

Are you basing Goliath's height on the MT or on LXX/4QSam? -Jq
