Spring 2015 Discussion Series: Ethics, Interpretation, and Influence

The Scripture Project is pleased to announce our theme for the Spring 2015 semester: Ethics, Interpretation, and Influence. We will be conversing about a variety of ethical issues related to the interpretation and application of Scripture in variegated biblical texts, and how these texts are (or are not) applied in different hermeneutical frameworks. All of our meetings this semester will occur on Thursdays from 12PM–1PM in different rooms in the Alumni Memorial Union. Please see below for the dates, presenter, topic, and location:

February 5th: Gary Klump: “Inspiration and Affirmation: What does the Old Testament actually teach?”; AMU 380

 February 19th: Paul Pasquesi; “What is a ‘Sodomite’ to an Israelite?: Hospitality, Sexuality, and Rape in Genesis 18-19, Judges 19, and Ezekiel 16”; AMU 252
