Special Topics
in New Testament Studies

      Here you will find a variety of articles, discussions or other treatments of New and Old Testament topics. Some stem from seminars or classwork at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Others are contributed from time to time from the work of pastors, educators and former students. Contributions will range from academic to homiletic, from casual thoughts to formal exposition, and can take the form of sermons, essays, poetry, informal notation and occasionally other forms as well.
