Biblical Studies Carnival September 2012

Tim Bulkeley over at Sansblogue has posted the September Carnival.  He includes a nice selection of links on a wide range of topics, and including a number of podcasts.  Tim has done an excellent job rounding up the more significant posts on the Coptic fragment which implied Jesus had a wife.  From the original announcement the blogosphere burning brightly, occasionally popping up in traditional media sites.

Another big deal this month was the start of The Jesus Blog, written by Anthony Le Donne and Chris Keith.  So far this has been an excellent resource written by high quality scholars.  I am expected even greater things from the blog future. Le Donne and Keith have a book and are involved in an upcoming seminar, “Jesus, Criteria, and the Demise of Authenticity,” sponsored by  United Theological Seminary and the University of Dayton, October 3-4, 2012.

The October Carnival will be hosted by the gang at BLT (Bible * Literature * Translation).  Abram K-J from Words on the Word is on tap for the December Carnival.

I am now the “keeper of the Carnival List.” If you want to host a Carnival, please contact me.  I am looking for a November host, and hosts for 2013.  Carnivals are a great way to attract attention to your site if you are new blogger, but more importantly it gives you a chance to highlight the best and the brightest in the world of bibliblogs.
