I am hosting this month’s Biblical Studies Carnival and need your help. If you are unfamiliar with the Biblical Studies Carnival, it serves as a monthly compendium of biblical studies blog posts, covering subjects ranging from language to literature, history to theology, as well as culture. If you come across any good posts this month (deadline is June 30th), you can send them to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I may just include them. Don’t be shy now.
Phil Long at Reading Acts is always looking for bloggers to host future carnivals. Let him know if you would be interested in hosting. It’s a great opportunity to get your blog out there, as well as synthesize the world of biblical studies blogs for your readers.
This month’s biblical studies carnival is now post at that jeff carter was here. It has quite the range of subject matter including an intriguing lecture on 1 Enoch, as well as a chart to help you keep your Mesopotamian deities straight. Overall, it looks like a great carnival.
But if that were not enough. Jim West has taken it upon himself to put together his own party of carnival links. He apparently opted for a carnage theme this month (?). Regardless, he has some good links posted as well.
Next month’s the biblical studies carnival will be hosted by yours truly. If you gather any good links over the next 30 days make sure to pass them along.
Jacob Cerone over at ἐνθύμησις has hosted the latest Biblical Studies Carnival. He has listed several good links, as well as book reviews. I recommend checking it out. For more information on hosting a future carnival contact Phil Long.

Drewe at Delving into the Scriptures has hosted this month’s biblical studies carnival. One link in particular that is of interest here stands on the front of the translation theory of the LXX of Hosea.
Jacob Cerone, blogger at ἐνθύμησις, discusses the significance of the LXX rendering of the names of Hosea’s children, translating and not simply transliterating them. He rightly points out the implications this has for understanding the interpretive perspective of the translator(s) of Hosea. Furthermore, he notes the relevance this has for English Bible translations. Should the names be transliterated (Lo-Ruhama/Lo-Ammi), or should they be translated (No mercy/Not my people)? I recommend checking out the post.
Phil Long is on tap for next month’s carnival, so make sure to pass along any good biblical studies blog posts that you come across.
I wake up on the first of every month with a sense of anticipation. It’s kind of like Christmas, but, without all the baggage. For, it’s time for the biblical studies carnival: a monthly synopsis of blog posts on subjects related to biblical studies.
This month, Jim West has put together our carnival. And, as anyone familiar with Jim’s blog will know, it is not the least bit dull. In addition to his colorful commentary, Jim links to many good posts on Hebrew Bible, New Testament, DSS, ect. The carnival itself is dedicated to Mack Brady, son of Jewish Literature Professor of Penn State Christian Brady, who recently passed away at the young age of eight years old.
Some highlights of the carnival include a couple posts by my friend Brian Davidson on discourse analysis and the book of Jonah, Rusty Osborne’s post on John Walton’s guiding principals for ANE comparative study, and a link to the newly released Marginalia Review of Books site. And just in case that was not enough, we have the privilege of seeing Jim in a Snuggie.
I am looking forward to next month’s carnival, put on by Drewe at Delving into the Scriptures. Phil Long is always looking for new folks to host carnivals, so for more information see here.
Abraham K-J, blogger over at Words on the Word, has hosted the December 2012 biblical studies carnival. He has included some good links, including several lists of top books/blog posts of the year. He also includes several sites that have recently published electronic versions of various manuscripts, notably the digital collection of the DSS from the Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library. Readers may also be interested to find a link to the online text of the NA28, together with several reviews by Jim West, Rick Brannan, and Chris Keith. Overall, the carnival appears to be another hit, following last month’s stellar carnival hosted by Bob at Dust.
The purpose of the carnival serves as a compendium of biblical studies blogs, covering subjects ranging from language to literature, history to theology, as well as culture.
