  1. 2019 New Testament Book Club on Facebook! If you’d like to have your mind blown and your faith deepened, I have good news for you. A group of us will be reading popular-level works by a British New Testament scholar, N.T. Wright. Suffice it to say that NT Wright is brilliant, witty, deeply Christian (Anglican), and uplifting even to those of different faiths like us. The books we’ll be reading will discuss the overarching theology of the Old and New Testaments, the story of Israel, the time period “between the testaments,” life in Ancient Rome and Israel, and fresh perspectives on Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection. The first book we’ll be reading is “Simply Jesus,” which serves as a good introduction to NT Wright’s thought and works. If you’d like to join the conversation, our group is “Mormons Talk | NT Bible Scholarship” https://www.facebook.com/groups/152515401862902
  2. Sorry! You are right, this is redundant. How do I delete this thread? If a mod wants to do it, that'd be great.
  3. Deleted. Duplicate of another post.
  4. A few years ago, William Hamblin wrote one of his final blog posts at Patheos about the absence (or demise?) of ancient BOM studies at BYU. Yet it seems to me that such a curriculum could be created outside of the confines of BYU, if sufficient desire existed in the ancient BOM studies community. Consider the following as an example of what might be done: an independent online "Academy" with recorded courses, readings, assignments, etc. Yes, it's not the same as a university, but its certainly better than nothing! The following catholic resource was my inspiration for this idea: https://catholicstudiesacademy.com So what courses would an ancient BOM studies curriculum have? What materials? Which professors? Share your thoughts!
  5. Sit down and stay calm. A free course on Judaism from Harvard will soon begin. Christianity and other religions to follow. https://online-learning.harvard.edu/course/judaism-through-its-scriptures?category[]=12 Incidentally, there are also fabulous courses on the Bible from Yale and Harvard at the following: http://courses.biblicalarchaeology.org/hebrewbible/ https://oyc.yale.edu/religious-studies/rlst-145 https://oyc.yale.edu/religious-studies/rlst-152 What are some high quality, online, and inexpensive resources that you've found to deepen your study of religion and scripture?
