Blog Dinner in D.C.: Full!

I am pleased and regret (at the same time) to say that the table for the blog dinner in D.C. in September is now full.  I have a waiting list that I have started, and have notified everyone who contacted me (both those at the table and those on the waiting list.)

But I’ll be doing others this coming year in a few other places!  Hopefully others can come to these

Last Minute (well, sort of): Another Blog Dinner Option. NYC, August 27
Blog Dinner, Washington DC. September 6, 2019

    Are you going to visit the museum of the bible? 😉

      Not this time. Seen it already, and that was enough for now.

    If you ever find yourself in Tulsa, OK without dinner plans I will gladly take you to dinner. I know this great restaurant near Oral Roberts University.

    Greetings Bart. Sorry I missed out on this. I follow your FB blog posts religiously (pun intended), but must have missed the one announcing the dinner. Perhaps another time.

    Any plans to visit the Dallas area in the next 12 months?

    I was reading recently some of what you have written about the factors critical scholars use to evaluate how likely something in the new testament is historical. How to determine, for example, Jesus almost definitely didn’t walk on water, but was almost certainly a disciple of John. Has anyone ever written a book that rates information in the NT from most to least likely to be historical? Since you’re counting the criteria and coming up with a number rating, it seems it would be possible to compile a relatively objective list — a standard model, like in math. And if that what the Jesus Seminar was trying to do, why did it fail?

      My sense is that most historians don’t think you can do a statistical / quantified analysis of historical certainty. There’s nothing objective about it, unlike, say, math or chemistry.

    Any chance of having a future blog dinner in Birmingham (that’s England, not Alabama, I’m afraid)?

      Ha! Not likely. I used to go to Birmingham on occasion, to visit scholars there. But not so much now. Maybe London down the road, though, since I’m here a good deal (still am, as we speak)

        That would be great (London). I will try and hold you to that.
