From Dan Wallace:
New manuscripts digitized by the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM) have just been added to our searchable collection. These include 10 new manuscripts from the National Library of Greece in Athens, the site of our ongoing digitization project for 2015–16.
Chris Stevens has the latest article in the Journal of Greco-Roman Christianity and Judaism, “John 9.38-39a: A Scribal Interjection for Literary Reinforcement.”
Raymond Jachowski has the latest article in the Journal of Greco-Roman Christianity and Judaism, “The Death of Herod the Great and the Latin Josephus: Re-examining the Twenty-second Year of Tiberius.”
The folks at Lexham Press have kindly sent along a pre-release copy of Michael Heiser’s new book, Supernatural. Heiser holds a PhD in Hebrew Bible and Semitic Languages from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Supernatural is a follow-up to Heiser’s previous volume Unseen Realm (Lexham, 2015; see Supernatural, 9). Both continue following up on themes Heiser previously explored in his doctoral thesis on “The Divine Council in Late Canonical and Non-Canonical Second Temple Jewish Literature” (2004).
I’ve only just started reading around in the volumes. But, thus far, Heiser’s approach is palpably accessible, and he commendably stresses the importance of doing justice to the biblical text in a way that encourages readers to see and wrestle with what is on the pages in front of them.
I look forward to working through the volumes in more depth. Unseen Realm is already generally available. Supernatural officially releases on November 10, but it’s already available for (pre-)order.
Auctor is the postgraduate journal of the Royal Holloway (University of London) Classics department. Our aim is to provide a high quality peer-reviewed journal, where postgraduates at any stage in their career can publish notes or articles pertaining to the classical world. We do not discriminate and so not only welcome submissions in Classical literature, but also from archaeology to reception, and everything in-between.
On these pages you will find information regarding the latest call for papers and how to submit an article. You can also find out about our current editorial team and panel of reviewers. More will be added to the website as we put together our first issue, but for now please take a look around and get involved.
For more information, see the Auctor website.
