Well, I arrived at San Diego for ETS on Wednesday afternoon. I heard papers from Dr. William Varner and Andrew Pitts from McMasters Divinity School. I have only talked with Andrew via facebook, so to be able to meet him in person was a blessing. What a scholar and amazing guy! I heard a lecture from Doug Moo and a session on Richard Bauckham book, which was ok. I had lunch with Rick Brannon from Logos Bible Software. That was the highlight of the day. He is a really smart fellow, who loves the Lord and his word. It has been fun rooming with Dr. Varner. We have laughed and joked and prayer together. This is a vacation like none other. I am have a really good time.
Today I got to hang out with Andrew and his friend Chad for awhile. I also listened to a paper by Stan Porter on the lexical importance of πιστις in the πιστις χριστου debate (thanks again to Andrew for helping me understand the gist of his Porter’s argument). Now I am sitting in my hotel room relaxing and reading some of the books (some as in quite a few!) I purchased. I will list them all in another post. Blessings to all!
