NT Textual Criticism at the ETS Annual Meeting

This year the Annual Meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society is in Milwaukee (14-16 Nov 2012), with the general topic of 'Caring for Creation' and a wide (and interesting) selection of papers. I couldn't find anything on OT textual criticism, but in NT the following sessions and papers look interesting:

Abidan Paul Shah (Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary), Twenty Years since the “Orthodox Corruption” - A Survey of Responses and Developments

Doug Burleson (Freed-Hardeman University), Scribal Traits in Direct-Copy New Testament Manuscripts

Radu Gheorghita (Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary), The Scribal Habits in Handling the Old Testament Quotations Displayed in the Major Codices

John H. Niemelä (Rocky Mountain Bible College and Seminary), Early Publishing Technology: Scrolls versus Codices

Armin D. Baum (Freie Theologische Hochschule Gießen), Does the Pericope Adulterae (John 7:53-8:11) have Canonical Authority? An Interdenominational Approach

Tomas Bokedal (University of Aberdeen), Implications of Canonical Date for Scriptural Interpretation

David I. Yoon (McMaster Divinity College), Canonical Criteria: A Diachronic Analysis of the Early Church’s Recognition of the New Testament Canon

Benjamin Laird (University of Aberdeen), Hebrews and the Circulation of the Pauline Corpus in Early Christianity

Jonathan C. Borland (Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary), Identifying Real Orthodox Corruptions of Scripture: Some Guidelines based on Probable Orthodox Corruptions from the Gospel of Matthew

Paul Hartog (Faith Baptist Theological Seminary), 1 Corinthians 2:9 and Related Traditions in the  Apostolic Fathers

Troy A. Griffitts (Institut für Neutestamentliche Textforschung), Editing The Greek New Testament In A Digital Era

Maurice A. Robinson (Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary), De Facto Conjecture in the Main Text of NA27: A Further Consideration
Bill Warren (CNTTS), On the Road to Vaticanus: Another look at P4


  1. Please tell me more about that De Facto Corruption in the Main Text of NA27!

    Can we get an interview at ETC with MAR?

    Yours in Christ,

    James Snapp, Jr.

  2. I haven't seen a call for papers yet, but the ETS program book advertised that the 2013 Eastern Regional ETS meeting (March 1-2 at Liberty University/Seminary in Lynchburg, VA) will have the theme "The Text of the New Testament: It's Defense, Interpretation, and Significance," with Dan Wallace as the plenary speaker.

  3. I will also be attending ETS in Milwaukee. But, we cannot leave this one out either:

    Dr. Bill Warren (CNTTS), On the Road to Vaticanus: Another look at P4.

    Paul D. Anderson

  4. Thanks Paul,

    I missed that one - hidden in a general NT session.
