You are warmly invited to a public lecture on Monday 25 June by Dr Stanley Porter at our Henderson campus.
New Testament studies has too often been shackled by a limiting and constraining literalism. The result of such a narrow view of human experience and use of language is the failure to appreciate the nature and complexity of language itself, in particular metaphor. Fundamental to interpretation is recognition of the role that language plays in human experience, and from that grow all of the other helpful means by which we analyze texts. In this lecture Dr Stanley Porter will look in particular at theories of metaphor to see what they help us to understand about language, and about how metaphors function in the New Testament.
