Two Didsbury Lecturers this year!
October 23rd-26th, at 7:30pm
JB Maclagan Chapel, NTC
We are excited to announce that Professor Philip Alexander and Canon Professor Loveday Alexander will present their papers on ‘Priesthood and Sacrifice in the Epistle to the Hebrews’. This is the first time the Lectures will be shared through the week and we are looking forward to a dynamic and stimulating discourse.
Philip Alexander is Emeritus Professor of Post-Biblical Jewish Literature at The University of Manchester. Loveday Alexander is Canon Professor of Biblical Studies at the University of Sheffield, and a former Canon Theologian of both Chester and Chichester Cathedrals.
Both speakers are widely published and respected in their fields of study. Publications include The Mystical Texts (Companion to the Dead Sea Scrolls) (2005), The Preface to Luke’s Gospel: Literary Convention and Social Context in Luke 1:1-4 and Acts 1:1 (2005).
In 1979 the College instituted an annual lecture series, the Didsbury Lectures. Each year a series of four lectures is given by a leading scholar or theologian standing within the historic Christian faith. This distinguished lecture series is published by Wipf & Stock.
