I have received news that a paper, which I submitted to the SBL Pacific Coast 2016 regional meeting, has been accepted for presentation in the NT Gospels and Acts section. My paper is titled “The Certamen of Homer and Hesiod and the Gospels of the New Testament: A Comparison of Biographical Genre,” and is based on an earlier blog post that I wrote here. You can read a copy of the paper that I submitted to the regional meeting here.
I attended the SBL Pacific Coast regional meeting last year, and blogged about Dennis MacDonald’s presentation. It’s great to now be presenting a paper at the same meeting, on a topic related to Homer, nonetheless!
The regional meeting will take place next March at Claremont, which is very close to my house in Pasadena. I look forward to the professional feedback that I will get about my paper!
