Scholars have long disagreed about the originality of the text of John 7:53-8:11, which contains the story of the woman caught in adultery. Traditionally known as the Pericope Adulterae, this text has concerned various textual critics as to whether it should be included in the canon of Scripture. Furthermore, Bible translators have debated how to include it in their translations, and pastors have debated whether they should preach it as inspired Scripture. Please join us as we explore these issues with some of the leading scholars in this area. 

Is the woman caught in adultery passage:

  • Original to John's Gospel? Or is it a later interpolation?
  • Should it be proclaimed or proscribed?

These questions will be discussed at Pericope Adulterae.

Join us on April 25 - 26, 2014

The cost will be $30 per person & $20 for students.
