Dr. David Joy presented a paper on “Remapping the Milieu of the New Testament through Intertextual Reading.” The paper evoked interest because it took listeners into the world of intertextual reading. Dr. Joy is in the process of widening the scope of his thoughts on intertextual reading for further publication.
