This will be a stonkingly good conference!

I’m really looking forward to Friday and Saturday this week when we have our first St Mary’s University Centre for Social-Scientific Study of the Bible conference on ‘Evil in Second Temple Judaism and Early Christianity’—details here; you can still book to come!

I’m working on a paper on ‘Evil in Ephesus (Acts 19:8-40)’ which is looking at issues of the nature of evil, and how Luke sees evil being overcome, in Paul’s visit to the city. There are lots of interesting things going on—the full programme is here in pdf.

I’ll be blogging later in the week (and probably next week too) about the conference.
