…….Intercultural biblical interpretation seeks to deepen understandings of scripture through intentional conversation between people who view the text from different cultural standpoints. To use an illustration by Justo González in Santa Biblia: The Bible Through Hispanic Eyes (Abingdon, 1996), when people view the same valley from different ridges, they tend to see different things. They can get a more complete picture of the valley by sharing with one another what they see. Similarly, understandings of scripture often deepen when people with different experiences help one another see it through their eyes. Attention to the cultural backgrounds of the authors and earliest audiences of biblical texts is also an important aspect of intercultural interpretation. The workshop offered .6 CEU in Biblical Interpretation.

He has co-taught a study of 1 Corinthians with Dr. Pandang Yamsat, a professor emeritus at the Theological College of Northern Nigeria.
