The Society for Old Testament Study in Japan (日本旧約学会) published its 9th issue of Old Testament Studies (Kyūyaku-gaku Kenkyū) last month. This year’s issue includes 2 articles and 4 symposium addresses. All of the articles and talks are in Japanese, but, following the common practice in Japan, the journal includes an English table of contents.

  1. Japanese readers may find Susumu Higuchi’s online (Japanese) report about the symposium to be a helpful summary of the addresses.
  2. Katsuki Hirano’s address includes, as an appendix (pages 73–87), a Japanese translation of M. Craig Barnes’s sermon, “Preaching to the Rabble” (Numbers 11:1–6), delivered at the Festival of Homiletics on May 19, 2010. The Japanese title is 「”雑多な他国人”への説教」.
  3. I corrected one typo in Hirano’s address title (“Homiletics North America” to “Homiletics in North America”).
  4. Inquiries about this and other issues of Old Testament Studies may be addressed to:
