Blog Dinner for NYC Full!

I am pleased  to say that the table for the blog dinner in NYC for August 27 is now full.  At this point I will start a waiting list, in the event that someone backs out, as often happens.   So let me know if you want to be on it.

And as other opportunities come up, I’ll be sure to post them.

Join Me In Egypt? Tour in October 2020!

 

I am (very) happy to announce that I will be giving lectures on a tour to Egypt on October 16-29, 2020.  It’s not too early to start planning!  On the contrary: the trip hasn’t been seriously advertised yet, and already four people have signed up!

The trip is sponsored by the University of North Carolina General Alumni Association, BUT — big point here! — you do not need to be an alumna/alumnus to come.   It’s going to be a terrific trip.  ...

Do You Need a Free Membership?

Thanks to the incredible ongoing generosity of members of the blog, I am happy to announce that there are still some free one-year memberships available.   These have been donated for a single purpose: to allow those who cannot afford the annual membership fee to participate on the blog for a year.   I will assign these memberships strictly on the honor system: if you truly cannot afford the membership fee, but very much want to have full access to the blog, ...

Last Minute (well, sort of): Another Blog Dinner Option. NYC, August 27

OK, this is a bit unexpected.  But I’m going to be in New York (Midtown Manhattan) for a few days (that part was expected) and it turns out I’ll have an evening free, August 27.  And so if anyone’s interested I can do a blog dinner.  Given the location, it might be kind of pricey, but … well, if you’re interested, wanna come?

As per my custom:  the table will be limited to eight, of which I will be one.  That ...

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

Blog Dinner, Washington DC. September 6, 2019

On Friday, September 6, 2019, at 7:00 pm, I will be hosting a Blog Dinner for blog members (members only, I’m afraid) at the Bistro Bis at the George Hotel in Washington D.C.   The table is limited to eight.  I’m one of them.  That means that seven spots are available.  First come first served:  please do NOT response here on the blog, but send me a private email, at behrman@email.unc.edu.

The occasion is the Smithsonian Associates Seminar I’m doing the next ...

My Current Research Projects, 7/2019

I often get asked what I’m doing in my personal research – both long term and, well, what is it I actually do during the day?   It’s all related to the blog, so I thought I’d devote a single post to it, just a kind of overview of the kinds of things I’m working on.  Right now, as it turns out, it’s a wide range.

Tomorrow I’m off to Marburg Germany (I’ve been in London for most of the summer, so ...

Sad News From Larry Hurtado

Many readers on the blog will know of Larry Hurtado, a prominent New Testament scholar who has been influential as one of the most regular and reliable bloggers on issues of relevance to the study of early Christianity.   Larry has announced that he is very ill and will no longer be able to participate in either scholarship or the promotion of early Christians studies to a broader reading audience.  This is very sad, especially for us who know ...

Would You Be Willing To Donate a Membership?

Twice a year on the blog, around mid-year and Christmas, I open up a possibility to help out people who really want to be on the blog but cannot afford the membership fees.  We are at that point!  So here is the semi-annual appeal for you to pitch in, as you feel moved.

We’ve been doing this for nearly six years.  It  all started off when two anonymous donors proposed that they provide some funds to pay for memberships for a ...
