Biblical Studies Carnival 45 is up at The Golden Rule. Lots of thought-provoking, informative, and sometimes controversial posts. Here’s a small sample:
Matt began a great series of scholar interviews including John Kloppenborg, Larry Hurtado and Andreas Köstenberger. Mike Bird interviews Kavin Rowe on his work on Luke-Acts. Rob Kashow had 10 questions for Daniel Wallace. Chris Tilling found a goldmine of conservative scholarship. Stephen Smuts links to a video with Chris Forbes on the references to Jesus in Josephus’ Antiquities, but the site also has a good interview with the late Martin Hengel. Nick Norelli links to a number of articles by Scott Hahn. Some scholars took a bit of a beating in August. Kevin Edgecomb argues that Wellhausen and other giants of German Liberal Protestant scholarship built on a rotten foundation of anti-Semitism. Shocking as it may sound, not everyone is fond of the good Bishop Wright. Paul Helm and Gerald Bray expressed their critiques, but the latter provoked some critical responses.
