This April, the Readings from the Roots translation team will host a two-day conference at the College of the Holy Cross to highlight the project and engage scholars and practitioners, especially Christian clergy:

  • To deepen their understanding of the authors’ relationship to Judaism in the diverse writings of the New Testament;
  • To articulate the challenges and opportunities for accurately reflecting that relationship in a translation of Scripture; and
  • To consider how a translation of the texts can be used in worship to eradicate the anti-Judaism that continues to be associated with Christian readings of the Bible.

All conference sessions are free and open to the public. Complimentary meals will be available to conference guests who pre-register.
