It’s almost March, and I haven’t blogged much — mostly because I’ve been gathering transcriptions of papyri and translating them in my spare time. I think the count is now over 60 transcriptions, with a large proportion of them translated as well. This is all research and preparation for a larger book project that I’m just about ready to chart out and try to see if I can get it written, somehow, in the next year.
And I’ve also been writing my weekly email newsletter, (forthcoming), in bits of time between transcribing and translating (and fixing rabbit hutches, and playing with kids, and of course working at Faithlife, and sometimes even sleeping).
So it’s been busy and productive, but I haven’t really blogged much about it all. If you want to keep up, the best thing to do is to subscribe to (forthcoming).
What’s happening next? I’m torn because I really, really, want to keep digging into the early fragmentary Christian papyri. They are so interesting, and there is so much work to be done there. But I also need to start writing a paper on commands in Titus for a conference in Germany this September. But before that I need to write two papers for BibleTech — again in Seattle on April 11 and 12. And it may have been foolish, but I just submitted a proposal for a paper at SBL (in San Diego this November!) which I can talk about more after I hear whether or not it gets accepted.
So, yes, I’ve been busy!
