The second-to-final Linguistics Circle gathering for 2023-2024 will be on Thursday, March 7, 7-9pm, as we have Namhyo Kim (PhD student in New Testament), present his paper entitled “Creation Thematic Formation in the Gospel of John.” This paper will employ Jay Lemke’s concept of textual thematic formation to illustrate how the Gospel of John develops the thematic formation of “God’s work-finish-rest (Sabbath),” based on Genesis 2:1-3. To access and read the paper beforehand (highly recommended), it can be found in the CBLTE forum.

Anyone who is interested in joining is most welcome to join, either in person or online. As usual, there is a pre-Circle dinner gathering at 5pm. We will meet in Cullen Hall near the back doors (that face the centre of campus) and walk together to the Phoenix on campus.

As customary, our discussion will be held in the College board room, as well as on Zoom (link below) for those who are unable to join in person. To access and read the paper beforehand (highly recommended), it can be found the CBLTE forum. For any questions or comments, or access to the forum, please contact co-chairs Dr. Stanley Porter, Dr. Dave Yoon (yoond2@mcmaster.ca), or email CBLTE directly (cblte@mcmaster.ca). We look forward to another fruitful discussion about John’s thematic formation of Sabbath rest, a timely reminder during these final few weeks of the academic year.
