I’ve just had great fun in the two-day online seminar on the use of the Old Testament in the New, chaired by Professor Susan Docherty. Normally, this annual seminar happens in person at St Deiniol’s Library, Hawarden in North Wales, but this year it took place online. The seminar is engaged in a project in looking at how the New Testament authors engage with characters from the Old Testament; this year there were a couple of papers on Elijah (including mine), and one on Abraham. Here are the slides from my talk; I’d welcome comments on them, as in due course I’ll want to revise this paper for publication.
