Epiphanies of the Divine in the Septuagint and the New Testament: Mutual Perspectives

NCTL Learning and Conference Centre, Nottingham
14-16 May 2015

The Department of Theology and Religious Studies in collaboration with the Centre for Bible, Ethics and Theology (CBET) hosted the V. International Symposium of the Corpus Judaeo-Hellenisticum Novi Testamenti.

The Corpus aims to improve the understanding of individual New Testament writings as an integral part of the culture of Hellenistic Judaism. Drawing on a rich history of scholarship, the project seeks to provide an innovative tool that gives a single overview of the Jewish-Hellenistic parallels that have been put forward for the understanding of a given text in the New Testament.
