Last month, the Phoenix Seminary Text & Canon Institute was pleased to host its inaugural Sacred Words church conference. With over 500 who registered, attendees came from as far away as Illinois and Alabama to learn from respected evangelical scholars about how we got the Bible.
Christians and skeptics alike heard from Dr. Peter Gentry on the textual history of the Old Testament followed by talks from four breakout speakers that included Dr. Darian Lockett, Dr. Jeff Cate, Dr. Anthony Ferguson, and Timothy Mitchell. Saturday began with Dr. Stephen Dempster’s talk on the canon of the Old Testament followed by Dr. Daniel B. Wallace on the transmission of the New Testament. The event closed with a panel discussion with the plenary speakers and the Institute directors.
All the videos from the main auditorium are now online and can be viewed at Institute’s YouTube channel.
