David Horrell at the Mainz Moral Meeting

I was privileged to have had supper with proff David Horrell, Ruben Zimmermann, Jan van der Watt etc in Mainz last night. Prof Horrell shared with me some fascinating aspects of his theological development since he finished his PhD in the early 1990's in Cambridge.
Today he participated in the Mainz Moral Meeting with a paper entitled "Soma as a Basis for Ethics in Paul". In it he compared Paul's use of the body metaphor in 1 Corinthians 12.12-31, with Dionysius' Roman Antiquities 6.86. As my research focuses on the implications of the bodily resurrection for moral behavior in 1 Corinthians, his paper was extremly important to me.

There are amazing churches in Mainz. The one to the left was built around 975 CE.

Fantasties om bietjie op te vang noudat ons terug is! Dankie vir die Tyndale-toer en Cambridge rondwys. Verlang na julle!
