Scot McKnight (Jesus Creed) invited me to come this Monday to North Park University (Chicago), where he is a professor, to hear Dr. Donald Hagner lecture and then eat dinner with them as well as some NPU professors.
I showed up a little early for an absolutely riveting discussion on divorce (link shows short video) between Scot, Don, and Kermit Zarley (a former pro golfer who has funded the lecture series). Then Dr. Hagner delivered part one of his lecture series on "A Positive Theology of Judaism from the New Testament." Interesting and provocative. Learn more about the lecture series here, and here's Scot's short post on it.
It was an enjoyable day: I learned some new things, met some good people, and ate some great Italian food at Via Veneto.
