Another Semester in the Halls of Ivy

Yale’s fall semester began today. Although I may visit a few other courses during the two-week “shopping period,” my schedule will most likely consist of:

REL 654 Sibling Rivalries: Israel and “The Other” (Joel Kaminsky)
REL 687 Greek Exegesis: Hebrews (Harry Attridge)
REL 835 Iconography of Christian Art (Jaime Lara)

I’m particularly excited/terrified about Hebrews, given Dean Attridge’s status as a leading interpreter of this particular letter. In addition, I’m planning to audit Reading Knowledge of German (a necessity for NT studies, and one that will hopefully make me a more attractive PhD applicant!). Attention, Jim West… I’ll be directing all my German questions to you. 😉

    No problem lad. And your dad commented on my post about you! I think he should blog.

    That’s a good idea! I’ll pass it along.
