Weekly News

I summarized the news about Bible studies (Old Testament, Intertestamental period, New Testament) in the second week of April. I will be dealing with a number of items in the future, and each issue can be influenced by the interests of the author. The news may differ from the Korean blog.

 

▣ Special News
◎ On the Passion week, DTS released a discourse titled “Understanding the Passion Week.”

◎ An article about finding answers to the question “Who killed Jesus?” Was published on Zondervan’s blog.

▣ New Books
◎ Yoram Hazony’s <God and Politics in Esther> has been translated in South Korea. The author wrote <The Philosophy of Hebrew Scripture>. Translator is Professor Koowon Kim, and publisher is Hongsungsa.

◎ Professor Youngsam Chae (Baek Seok Univ.) published <Theology of the Catholic Epistles: The Church facing the World, its Crises and Strategies>. It is not easy to find works of domestic scholars about Catholic Epistles, andI hope that it will be very helpful for Korean Christian and theological studies.

 

▣ Book Introduction
◎ Professor Larry Hurtado wrote an article on his blog entitled “Early Christian Gospels: Their Production and Transmission”. More information on this book is available from the author, Scott D. Charlesworth, at Academia.
