Jerusalem-based scholar Gregory T. Tatum, O.P will be delivering a public talk tonight, Aug. 20, starting at 7 p.m. in the Grant Hall Theater at APU. Titled “Freedom of the Glorious Children of God,” the lecture considers themes of liberation and embodied glorification.
Tatum’s talk precedes his new fall 2013 course examining St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans, among letters whose authorship by the apostle is undisputed. The class extends Paul’s liberation message beyond the familiar concept of freedom from Mosaic Law.
Holder of a doctorate in New Testament and Christian Origins from Duke University, Tatum is a professor since 2006 at the internationally ranked Ecole Biblique et Archeologique Francais in Jerusalem.
