This is why we can’t have nice, biblical things

Apparently this advertisement was sent to students and faculty at BYU who are in some way connected to the study of HB/NT.

“You are invited to attend a public lecture this Wednesday by Margaret Barker, the well-known British founder of the Temple Studies group in London. The title of her lecture on deification is “The Lord is One.” This presentation will be held in the Varsity Theater, in the Wilkinson Student Center at 4:00 pm, Wednesday, November 9.

After her presentation, Andrew Skinner, Daniel Peterson, and David Larsen will offer responses, followed by Q&A on the topics of theosis and temple studies. All are welcome to attend this event sponsored by BYU Studies and the Academy for Temple Studies.”

 

Sigh.
