ABTS to Host Witherington for Scholar Series

News June 24, 2019

The Asia Biblical Theological Seminary community is abuzz with excitement about the upcoming Scholar Series in Bangkok, Thailand, featuring Dr. Ben Witherington III on New Testament Biblical Theology. Taking place at Bangkok Christian Guest House from July 17 to 30, 2019, Witherington will bring to life the New Testament through incisive historical and cultural analysis.

Witherington is the Jean R. Amos Professor of New Testament for Doctoral Studies at Asbury Theological Seminary. He has also taught at Ashland Theological Seminary, High Point College, Duke Divinity School and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He holds a Doctorate from University of Durham and a Master of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

A prolific writer, Witherington has written more than 40 books and six commentaries. The main textbooks used in this Scholar Series will be his two volume set entitled “New Testament Theology and Ethics.” The first volume looks at the individual witnesses, while the second examines the collective witness.

The New Testament, says Witherington, is “like a smallish choir. All are singing the same cantata, but each has an individual voice and is singing its own parts and notes. If we fail to pay attention to all the voices in the choir, we do not get the entire effect … If this first volume is about closely analyzing the sheet music left to us by which each musician’s part is delineated, the second volume will attempt to re-create what it might have sounded like had they ever gotten together and performed their scores to produce a single masterful cantata.”

What the New Testament authors have in mind, Witherington contends, is that all believers should be conformed in thought, word and deed to the image of Jesus Christ.

Registration

Registration takes place on a first-come, first-served basis. However, priority will be given to enrolled students from ABTS and credit students from other graduate-level institutions. Audit students are welcome to attend, as space allows.
