Thought I would join Brian Leport and announce that my paper was accepted for the upcoming HBU Theology Conference. My paper’s title is “‘Before I was Born’ – Paul’s Calling and the Question of Time in Galatians”.
I find the question of time interesting in general and have written several posts on Paul and time (Ann Jervis and T.F. Torrance). This paper examines the metaphorical nature of time in Paul’s autobiographical narrative in Galatians 1:11-17 and seeks to demonstrate how Paul’s calling provides a conceptual structure for his use of time in Galatians 3-4.
It should be a fun conference, I hope to see you there.
