3 for 3: THIRD Paper accepted for SBL in Atlanta

See  HERE and HERE for the other two.

Ok, this is getting crazy!  First, yes I am patently aware I am only allowed to do two papers.  To be honest, I never expected all 3 to be accepted.  But, news came today from Konrad Schmid that my paper on Gen 32-33 (which I presented at the regional meeting two weeks ago; see abstract HERE) was accepted for the Pentateuch program unit.  I am quite pleased, and surprised . . . not because of the quality of my paper but because methodologically it is not about Pentateuchal composition.

I have yet to make my final decision as to which two I will do; there is no question that I will present in the Theology of the Hebrew Scriptures section.  At present I am strongly leaning toward withdrawing the Isaiah paper and presenting in the Pentateuch section.  That is a fine, and important, group of folk with whom I would be fortunate to be involved.

How about others?  Have you had papers accepted?  If so, what is the title, and what unit?

    My paper was NOT accepted into the Hebrew Scriptures and Cognate Literature program unit. Still haven’t heard back on my second paper. It is in the same group I was in last year, so I suspect that I have a decent chance of getting in.
