IRVING, Texas (October 4, 2021) – Biblical Scholar Ben Witherington III, Amos Professor of New Testament for Doctoral Studies at Asbury Theological Seminary, will be the keynote speaker at B. H. Carroll Theological Institute’s Fall Colloquy November 15-16.
This colloquy, funded through the generous support of Frank and Pauline Patterson, will be held at University Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas, adjacent to Texas Christian University. The colloquy is a semi-annual gathering for scholarly discussion.
Witherington will speak on “Facets of New Testament Theology: Three Conversations.” Those conversations include titles such as “A Singular Jesus in a Pluralistic Culture,” “The Rhetoric of Romans: Retelling Adam’s Tale,” and “On Dispensing with Dispensationalism.”
These lectures are drawn from Witherington’s continued research and his previous publications. He has written more than 50 books, including The Christology of Jesus (Fortress, 1997), Paul’s Letter to the Romans (Eerdmans, 2004), and The Problem with Evangelical Theology (Baylor, 2005). He is also a frequent contributor to the Patheos website and contributes to numerous scholarly journals and other publications.
Witherington is widely known as a leading New Testament scholar, serving with both Asbury and St. Andrews University in Scotland. He has also taught at Ashland Theological Seminary, Vanderbilt University, Duke Divinity School, and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He has lectured throughout the United States and in England, Estonia, Russia, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Australia.
