SBL Bests

If everyone who attended SBL were rating their "bests", of course, they'd all be different. Regardless, here are my "SBL Bests". If you attended, why not share your bests too. If you do this, let me know so I can add a link to your post here.

Best Overall Session: Diversity In Earliest Christianity (James Dunn, Jeffrey Peterson, Marcus Bockmuehl, Jerry Sumney, Jennifer Knust)

Best Paper (content): Jerry Sumney "The Death of Christ & Paul's Opponents in Earliest Christianity"

Best Paper (presenter): James McGrath: "Mark's Missing Ending"

Best / Most Memorable Quote: "We must remember that Paul didn't invent Christ-centered faith but rather, he entered it."

Can you think of any other topics or items you'd add to the list?


  1. Thanks for this. I'll try to do better with the content next time! :) lol

  2. Ahh, I didn't mean for you to take it that way (I hope your smiley face and lol were recognition of that). Your paper, content-wise, was certainly one of the best I heard. Keep up the good work.

  3. I did get your meaning, and am glad you got mine!
