Catholic Epistles

In by Catherine McDowell

The Catholic Epistles research group focuses on the historical figures of James, Peter, John, and Jude along with their often neglected letters. The research group will explore the degree to which these historical figures and their writings constitute a “non-Pauline” center of gravity both historically and theologically within the New Testament and the early church and will consider how a canonical reading of the Catholic Epistles influences the way we interpret and apply these letters.

For our first three years, the Catholic Epistles research group will be focusing on the historical Peter–Peter in history and tradition, Petrine theology, etc. Our inaugural meeting in 2023 will feature a book panel considering Gene Green’s Vox Petri: A Theology of Peter. Our goal is for our discussion over Dr. Green’s book to set the agenda for and encourage interest in our focus on Peter. For more information, please contact Darian Lockett ([email protected]).
