The BYU New Testament Commentary group announces that they will hold a conference on January 26, 2019, at the Hinckley Alumni Center at BYU, Provo, Utah.
The conference is “In the Beginning Were the Words: A Closer Look at Key New Testament Terms.” Presenters are Julie M. Smith, Brent Schmidt, John W. Welch, Richard D. Draper, Eric D. Huntsman, Michael D. Rhodes, John Gee, and S. Kent Brown. Virginia Pearce will conduct. They will discuss significant words in the New Testament, how meaning changed over time, and what these words can tell us about Jesus’ message. A description of the presentations is available here.

A detailed schedule with times of presentations will be posted at the BYU New Testament Commentary website in coming days.
