SBL: The Sessions, Preliminary Schedule, if I don’t become a lemming

I will be attending only but a few days – Sunday and Monday. Just enough, really, to get a few sessions in and attend the 2nd Annual Biblioblogger dinner on Sunday night. I have a roommate who is too embarrassed to know me and asked me not to reveal who he or she is. (I’m trying to use more inclusive language, although, there are times that I really don’t know the gender of my roomie).

Anyway, there are plenty of sessions that I want to attend at the 9am-11:30 section, but that means I would have to leave my house at midnight. If I don’t make it for that….

I’ll start my day at 1pm. I most likely will attend P21-214 International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies (they are the ones who translated the New English Translation of the Septuagint).

Then, rushing from there, I’ll attend between 4-6:30 p21-318 Functions of Apocryphal and Pseudepographal Writings in Early Judaism and Early Christianity Section. The theme for this section is 1st Enoch.

Let’s just be honest here – Throw in Septuagint, Deuteronomy, Wisdom or Deuterocanonical and I’m there.

Monday morning’s going to be tough… but most likely, I’ll end up at Wisdom and Apocalypticism in Early Judaism and Early Christianity Section/Qumran Section.

And of course, without question (okay, so a lot because Larry Hurtado is presenting on early Jewish monotheism too) the Biblioblogger section – s22-209

I’ll end my time at SBL with the Markan Literary Sources Seminar, which will feature Adam Winn as a presenter.
