As recorded in the Old Testament, the practice of male circumcision was established as a sign of covenant - sealed in male flesh - between God and Abraham. Yet, the Council of Jerusalem did not require the ancient rite as a mark of faith for male, Gentile converts to Christianity. This recording examines the covenant of circumcision, its cultural implications in the first century, and the New Testament's radical departure from the practice. The significance of the church's abandonment of the ritual and the implications of this fact for both male and female followers of Christ will also be explored.

A Question Mark Over My Head: Learning From the Narratives of Female Theologians in the Evangelical Academy. This lecture presents the findings of a qualitative study of women in evangelicalism, using the Evangelical Theological Society's 2014 annual meeting as the research site.

This session also presents possible future steps for action for those who are interested in the evangelical academy and church.
The status quo typically favors one ground over another.

Christ calls us to live today as a preview of what will be true for all eternity.
