History of Biblical Interpretation 
3:30 PM to 5:30 PM
Plaza Court 5 (Plaza Tower - Concourse Level) - Sheraton Downtown (SD)

The History of Biblical Interpretation group focuses on recovering and examining the work of past male and female biblical interpreters with the aim of better understanding the methodologies, themes, and historical trajectories in the interpretation of biblical texts. This year, our theme is “Reading Paul in the Reformation.” We have invited three experts to give 20-minute presentations on male and female interpreters during the Reformation which will provide fodder for a robust time of discussion to follow. Inquiries about the session can be directed to Marion Taylor ([email protected]) or Andrew Witt ([email protected]), or visit the IBR website under the Research Groups tab (https://www.ibr-bbr.org/ )
