The Master of Arts (Old Testament) (MAOT)is a degree program that prepares students for work and ministry in various settings. The MAOT is a rigorous academic program focusing on biblical and cognate languages, history of interpretation, near eastern history, and exegesis. Our graduates are ministering in a variety of settings. Many have continued in their studies by entering doctoral programs at Southeastern or at other prestigious programs such as Oxford or Catholic University.
We are pleased to offer you an opportunity to hear from our most recent group of young scholars. On Thursday afternoon, May 12, from 4:00-6:30 the Old Testament faculty of SEBTS is hosting the MAOT Thesis Presentation. This event will be held in the Center for Faith and Culture in Patterson Hall. Our five graduates will be sharing for us summaries of their thesis research. Each presentation will be followed by a brief question and answer discussion time. Back Alley coffee and refreshments will be served.
Our five graduates and their thesis titles are :
Matthew Christian, Anchors to Actualization: A Preliminary Study on Noun Citation Frames in the Continuous Pesher Documents
Nathaniel Cooley, An Analysis of Scribal Activity Found in the Textual Differences between the LXX and MT of Joshua 24:28-33
