Truman Students Present at National Honor Society Event

Joelle Axton and Alexandra Potter presented their papers at the annual Theta Alpha Kappa Honor Society March 22-23 in St. Louis.

Both Axton’s presentation on “The Lord’s Supper in Light of Paul’s Eschatology: Proclamation and Judge-ment,” and Potter’s paper on “Jesus and Women: An Inclusive Vision,” received honorary mention and book awards. Potter placed second in the competition, winning a $100 Theta Alpha Kappa gift certificate.  

Both papers originated as course requirements in classes taught by Mark Appold, associate professor of philosophy and religion.

At the conference Appold served as convener for the ASOR section in which he presented on the topic of “Archaeology, Text, and the Early Jesus Movement.”

This event met in conjunction with the Central States Regional Conferences of the Society for Biblical Literature (SBL) and the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR). These conferences draw academics from seven states, including Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Tennessee.
