  1. Obviously interest in Hebrews is alive and well in the guild!

  2. Yes, and they always seem to have more papers on Hebrews at ETS than at SBL. I am wondering why that is so.

  3. Is there anyway to access these papers?

  4. Tom, that is a good question. I did not attend the conference so I don't know if any of the papers were published. I suspect some of them are being prepared for publication. See my announcement here:
    Otherwise, I have been bold enough at times to contact the authors personally and ask for a copy of their paper.
