NYTS 2010 Bible Conference to be held on Nov. 18th

On Thursday, November 18th, the New York Theological Seminary 2010 Bible Conference will take place. The primary purpose of this conference is to seek to ask what it means to say, "God spoke through Moses."

At the conference, in-depth discussion of the traditional notion of the Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch will be undertaken. According to event organizers, they plan to ask the question: Was the Bible a mosaic rather than Mosaic? While the role of Moses in the Bible is debated, it is clear that churches have accepted the expression "God spoke through Moses." The conference will dwell on the richness of this statement.

Conference speakers include, among others, Leslie D. Callahan, St. Paul's Baptist Church, PA; Thomas Boomershine, Union Theological Seminary; Mary Callaway, Fordham University; Randall Pannel, Regent University; Moshe Kline, an independent Talmudic scholar; and Ellen Frankel, of the Jewish Publication Society.

The New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to multiculturalism, diversity, social justice and religious tolerance. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every background, for careers in ministry.
