Book of Acts
Bluffton university's annual Bible lecture
Dr. J. Alexander Sider, professor of religion at Bluffton University, will present the colloquium, "Purity, Proclamation and Peace in the Book of Acts," at 4 p.m. on Feb. 17, 2023, in Centennial Hall’s Stutzman Lecture Hall.
During the presentation, he’ll bring two arguments about the Book of Acts, one from British New Testament scholar C.H. Dodd and the other from Canadian Mennonite New Testament scholar Matthew Theisen, into conversation with each other. Sider will contrast the arguments and discuss how each contributes to our understanding of a central theme of Acts.
This is the annual Harry and Jean Yoder Scholar in Bible and Religion Lecture. The event is free and open to the public.
