    Will you be posting the text of your lectures on your blog? I hope so.

  2. Craig says:

    Will these lectures be recorded and available for downloading for those of us unable to attend?

  3. MJG says:

    I’ll probably post, after all are over, and I’ll look into whether the lectures will be recorded for downloading.

    Mike,

    In relation to your paper on justification:

    My hunch is that you have read Thomas W. Gillespie, “‘Faith’ as a Christological Title to in Paul” in Andreas Schuele and Gunter Thomas, eds, *Who is Jesus Christ for us Today? Pathways to Contemporary Christology* (Louisville: Westminster John Knox, 2009): 50-60.

    He discusses Rom 4:16-25 (and Galatians 3), asserting “that keeping the promise to Abraham . . . would require nothing less than a demonstration of resurrection power” (p. 54).

    “The crucial point is that this circle of belief includes Christ, who, like Abraham, believed in the promise as yet unfulfilled. Only the trust issue for Christ the seed was not the threat posed by aging reproductive organs, as with Abraham, but rather the menace of death itself to the heir of the promised blessing of the nations” (p.54).

    –John
