Yesterday (October 16, 2012), we had an exciting symposium here in Amsterdam, entitled The Text of the New Testament Today. It was a symposium in honour of Prof. em. Tjitze Baarda on the occasion of his eightieth birthday and celebrating the publication of the New ‘Nestle-Aland’ (NA-28). The symposium was organised by the Amsterdam Centre of New Testament Studies (ACNTS) in cooperation with the Institut für Neutestamentliche Textforschung (Münster). We were very privileged to have Prof. Barbara Aland and Dr Klaus Wachtel in our midst, as well as a number of outstanding New Testament colleagues from the Netherlands.
Prof. Bert Jan Lietaert Peerbolte then lectured on Friedrich Blass’ attempt to restyle Matthew 23:8-10, and Drs Bart Kamphuis presented part of his work for this project under the title “Straatman, the Silenced Women and the Resurrection: The Curious Origin of the Conjectured Omission of 1 Cor. 14:34-35”.
