Linguistics Circle at MDC resumes this Thursday, January 12, from 7-9pm in the Board Room at MDC. This month, PhD candidate (New Testament) Iain Sungmin Park will be presenting a paper entitled, “Prestige Religious Language of the Earliest Christianity: Indexical Cycle of the Jerusalem Church in Acts 1:6—6:6.” Utilizing Allan Bell’s “style” model, the paper argues that Greek was the prestige religious language of the Jerusalem church after Peter’s Pentecost sermon.

To access the paper, please visit forum.cblte.org. If you are not a member of the forum, please contact cblte@mcmaster.ca to join.

As usual, there is a pre-Circle dinner at 5pm on campus. Please RSVP for the dinner so that we know how many people will join. To RSVP or for any other questions, please contact Dr. Dave Yoon (yoond2@mcmaster.ca).
