Summer Biblical Studies 2015
An advance notice for those who might be interested in a spell of high-quality biblical study in summer 2015: The Vacation Term for Biblical Study will be held in Robinson College, Cambridge over two weeks, 2-7 and 9-14 August 2015.
I’ve participated in previous years a couple of times and have been impressed with the quality of this general-public programme: typically, lectures by senior scholars on subjects in which they are expert, plus opportunities to take up or improve Greek and/or Hebrew, and reading sessions in the Greek NT and Hebrew OT led by the lecturers.
There are two one-week sessions. So one can take either session or both. And I reiterate that the programme is set up especially for “adult” learners who simply want a high-quality teaching but not for degree-credit.
Plus, there is free time most afternoons to do some sight-seeing in Cambridge, punt along on the river Cam, walk to a nearby village for a pint, or . . . whatever.
