The Formation of the Bible: A Major Debate Among Scholars” by Lee Martin McDonald, BA., B.D., Th.M., Ph.D.
Griset Lecture

7 p.m.
Wallace All Faiths Chapel

This lecture will focus on some of the most important issues related to the formation of the Bible, including many debatable topics such as definitions of Scripture and canon, and the relevant ancient artifacts such as catalogues of sacred scriptures, the content and text of ancient manuscripts. These and other issues are at the heart of the multiple variations in modern translations highlight the historical, theological, and sociological contexts of the formation of the Bible. This lecture will also clarify issues that regularly divide biblical scholars and raise questions among people of faith about the books included in the Bible and why some many more books were excluded. Such topics necessarily involve investigations of relevant ancient documents, when the processes of the formation was complete, and what significance this has for biblical faith (both Jewish and Christian). There will, of course, be an opportunity to interact with Dr. McDonald following his presentation.
