Indeed, this semester I'm taking a class on Archaeology of the New Testament world. My professor is Dr. Laura Mazow whose doktorvater was none other than....you guessed it....William Dever. Soon, I too will be asking questions like, "Did God have a Cousin Whom He Refused to Talk to at Parties?" I hope the guild won't think less of me.
I'm actually very much looking forward to the class as I'm painfully unaware of archaeology and its relation to NT studies.
I'm also taking a class with Dr. Jonathan Reid who did his doctoral work under Heiko Oberman. Oberman's book, "Luther: Man Between God and the Devil" is very informative.
