Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the program will begin at 9:00 a.m. Seven dollars will cover registration cost. Multnomah Theology Professor, Michael Gurney, is chairman of the Northwest ETS.



"This regional conference of the Evangelical Theological Society is a great opportunity for those interested in biblical and theological studies to participate in the ongoing academic conversation," Dr. Gurney said.


Marcus Borg (fellow of the Jesus Seminar, retired Professor of religion and culture at Oregon State University, and now is Canon-Theologian at Trinity Cathedral in Portland) and Craig Blomberg (Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary) will lead the plenary session by presenting papers followed by a dialogue on the topic of "The Search for the Historical Jesus: Two Views."
