2022 Southeast Meeting Overview

2022 Southeast Region Meeting Information

John 3:16 and Biblical Theology

The BJU Seminary faculty and staff are delighted to welcome ETS members and guests to our campus for the Southeast Regional meeting March 25th and 26th, 2022. We are also excited to have Andreas Köstenberger as our keynote speaker.

Dr. Köstenberger has recently completed a new biblical theology for Crossway entitled, Biblical Theology and God’s Love for the World, based on the gospel message of John 3:16. He will be addressing us concerning a methodology for doing biblical theology, as well as presenting some of the key points from his work on this volume.

There will also be a casual Q&A time after the Friday evening meal and keynote address entitled, “Kaffee with Köstenberger.” This will be a great time not only to direct questions to our speaker but also for faculty and students from various schools to connect and make new acquaintances.

As usual, we also invite faculty and student papers. We are especially interested in papers on the subject of biblical theology and the gospel, but papers on other topics are welcome too.

Deadline for paper submission, January 31, 2022.
