My Paper Proposal for 2009 SBL International Meeting Accepted


In less than 3 days after I submitted my paper proposal for the 2009 SBL International Meeting for the Paul and Pauline Literature Programme unit, I received an email from the Chair of the Programme Unit that my paper proposal has been accepted.

For this year, I hope to work on Romans 13:1-7. Let's see how this will develop over the next few months. This year's SBL paper is the second in the series of papers that I am developing in the area of contextual hermeneutics, and hopefully over the years, these paper will culminate into a collected essays on contextual hermeneutics that will be my 4th book project.

Whether I will eventually make it to SBL International Meeting in Rome is another issue. For now, I am glad my paper has been accepted and this gives me the inspiration to work on it.

Hi Paul,
Thanks for wishes. I don't think it has anything to do with last year's paper at Auckland... :-)
