Theological Fellowship Presents Dr. Karen Jobes

When: Friday, April 4, 2014, 1 – 2:30 p.m.

Where: Founders Hall 342

Dr. Karen Jobes, Gerald F. Hawthorne Professor of New Testament Greek and Exegesis at Wheaton College, will be the featured speaker for Covenant Theological Fellowship’s spring Bantam Lecture.

Dr. Jobes is the author of Letters to the Church: A Survey of Hebrews and the General Epistles (Zondervan, 2011); 1 Peter in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series (Baker, 2005); Invitation to the Septuagint (Baker, 200), co-authored with Moises Silva; and other works. She served as the general editor of the Bringing the Bible to Life series for Zondervan from 2008 to 2010. Dr. Jobes has a special interest in the Septuagint (the ancient Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible) and how understanding the complexities of its use by New Testament writers is an essential part of New Testament exegesis, with implications for many topics related to biblical studies, such as language, history, hermeneutics, theology, and principles of Bible translation.
