2018 Biblical Languages Colloquium, April 20
Asbury Theological Seminary’s Eta Beta Rho and Gamma Rho Kappa host the 2018 Biblical Languages Colloquium, April 20, with special guest Dr. Kevin J. Youngblood, Associate Professor of Biblical Studies at Harding University. The Colloquium promotes the discussion and consideration of the benefits of biblical languages in the work of scholars and church leaders.
The colloquium fulfills the honor societies’ mission to foster an appreciation for biblical language, literature and culture, as well as insight into the ways a scholar and minister utilizes biblical languages in ministry.
The event is free and open to the public, but primarily targeted to students required to take Greek or Hebrew as part of their course work or community members who use biblical languages as part of their ministries.
