Well, I’m on my way back home from ETS and SBL. The week is always fun (sort of my Bible geek recharge for the year), but this year it was more so because Trey was along. We took the Naked Bible Podcast on the road. We wound up interviewing nearly twenty scholars (8.5 hours of content) and holding a get-together with podcast listeners in the area — some of whom drive more than five hours to be at the event!
We’ll be posting the interviews in installments everyday this week. Trey took pictures of all the interviews and our time with listeners. You’ll see those with each installment.
Here’s a link to Part 1 of our conference interviews. Enjoy!
Mike, it was so great to see you and meet Trey and David. Thanks so much for making yourself available. It was a real treat.
yep; it was fun!
Anyone else hit pause and rewind when Randall Price just nonchalantly dropped into the middle of his interview, “Ya, you know… for 10 years I was the DIRECTOR OF EXCAVATIONS AT QUMRAN…” Say what?!?!?!
Great interview! Can’t wait to check out the rest! I’d be curious if lay participation in AAR/SBL/ETS increases over the years as a result your podcast.
well, he likely directed something that was happening at Qumran, but I follow.
Also, the interview with Dr. Carl Sanders and Thomas Hudgens is right up there with David Burnett’s interviews. I’m working on getting this podcast into the inbox of some seminary PhD’s we know (one accredited, one not so much)… the later “seminary” has already closed it’s Biblical languages courses as students just weren’t taking them “because I don’t need Greek or Hebrew for counseling.” You don’t need the Bible for Christian counseling?!?! But I digress. The head of languages at the former seminary in my area is who needs to hear this but he’s old school… Southwestern before the wall fell… very skeptical, very critical. If I can get him this paper that would help. I gave both him and his colleague a copy of UR and his colleague loved it! Never heard back from him though and he’ll want to see the math on something like this… Keep me posted on what happens to this paper as I’d like to get it to him.
I’ll ask Carl if I can post the paper. If you don’t see it, the answer was no (for whatever reason).
