“The Spirit Speaks” in San Diego

Just got word that I’ll be reading my paper “The Spirit Speaks: Prosopological Exegesis and the Johannine Testimony Motif” at the Society of Biblical Literature annual meeting this fall in San Diego (Development of Early Christian Theology program unit). My goal in this paper is to examine the nature of OT citations assigned to the “person” of the Spirit in early Christian writers (especially Justin and Tertullian), and how certain Johannine ideas (cf. 1 John 5) were influential in this process by which Christianity came to take on a distinctively Trinitarian, and not just binitarian, view of God.

Hope to see some of you there! At least the weather in San Diego will be far better than what we had last year in Baltimore.
