I had a great time at ETS. It is always nice to re-connect with old friends and meet new ones. I read my paper at ETS on Romans 13, and it went well, I got some really good feedback. (Thanks for everyone who came to my paper and for all the much needed feedback!) ETS was at a much better venue this year, ironically we were in the hip Dupont Circle area of D.C. for ETS, and as a consequence there were some really good restaurants, and some nice pubs. Chimay on tap!
I only went to one group of papers at ETS, it was the Young Evangelical Scholars group, it was the best put together session I have ever been to at an ETS. If this is the future of ETS, then we are in good hands. I was really impressed with the presentation by J. Kameron Carter, and Shane Claiborn from the Simple Way had a lot to say that made me a bit conscious of my lack of imagination.
It was a good time overall, but since the Yadav brothers were missing it was not quite the same!
More to come on SBL...
