International Bible Forum 2007

The Bible speaks

We had many participants last year for the International Bible Forum 2006. Japan Bible Society is planning to hold another International Bible Forum this year in June, stimulated by the high interest in the Bible. Last year, the "Gospel of Judas" became a hot topic. We take this as a great opportunity to re-learn the foundation of the Bible, and have decided to invite Professor Marvin Meyer, who is the major figure in the "Gospel of Judas" research, and many other front-line researchers, who will be speaking on the topics of the canonical books, Apocrypha, and Pseudepigrapha.
