This year’s Society of Vineyard Scholars annual meeting was at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky.

Had a late night, so running a little late today. Make sure to follow the twitter hashtag #SVS2014 to stay up on people’s thoughts
11:06am… sitting in the “Hermeneutics: The Authority of God in Scripture” session. Listening to Corey Hackworth’s paper, “A Case for the Beatification of Texts.”
11:22am… David Sloan on “Jesus and Inerrancy.”
John 10:34-36 is a possible text to support inerrancy. “The Scriptures cannot be broken.”
Jesus’ position is very similar to modern inerrancy proponents.
Sloan appears to support a view similar to Kevin Vanhoozer’s well informed inerrancy. Love it.
11:31am… Beth Stovell, the biblical studies genius. Speaking on pneumatic hermeneutics. Seeks to acknowledge the Spirit’s role.
Kingdom is closely related to the Spirit.
Brad Blocksome. Great question.
Push back on Sloan. I still like Sloan’s argument.
Over the next few days I’ll be doing some “live blogging” during my time at the Society of Vineyard Scholars’ 2014 annual conference (download the program here). We’re blessed to have Craig Keener and Jack Levison as keynote speakers, along with a ton of excellent people presenting excellent papers. Plus, I get to moderate/facilitate/sit-and-listen/respond during a hermeneutics panel covering a Vineyard 5-step exegesis model. Should be fun!
