Dale Allison at Duke

Duke Divinity School has an annual lecture series on the New Testament in honour of Kenneth W. Clark. This year, the honoured guest is Dale Allison:

Kenneth W. Clark Lectures
Established in 1984, the Kenneth Willis Clark Lectureship Fund honors the life and work of Reverend Professor Kenneth Willis Clark, a Divinity School faculty member for 36 years. Each year this fund enables the Divinity School to offer a distinguished program with special emphasis on New Testament studies and textual criticism.

The Historical Jesus and the Theological Jesus

Dr. Dale C. Allison Jr., the 2008 Clark lecturer, is professor of New Testament exegesis and early Christianity at the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania.

Dale C. Allison Jr.’s areas of expertise include Second Temple Judaism. He is also the author of books on early Christian eschatology, the Gospel of Matthew, the so-called
Sayings Source of Q, the historical Jesus, and the Testament of Abraham.
(By the way, I didn't add that "so-called" in the bibliography!). I am happy to say that we have been able to rearrange my Historical Jesus class on Wednesday, which normally meets a little later, so that we can attend Prof. Allison's first lecture on the Wednesday. Alas, I will miss the second because I will be in London, but this looks like it will be an excellent lecture series and I encourage everyone who can to come along.
