Dr. Rick Brumback, Freed-Hardeman University Bible professor and a narrator of Bible Land Passages, a documentary series, recently presented a paper of original research at the 18th International Conference on Patristics Studies at Oxford University.
The conference, which focused upon early church history, involved 1,100 church history professors and graduate students from around the world, the largest such gathering in the discipline. Brumback’s presentation, titled “Gregory of Elvira and the Evolution of a Spanish Pro-Nicene,” examined the work of this bishop who lived in the mid-fourth century and was involved in early debates about the deity of Christ.
“The Oxford conference allowed me the opportunity to meet with the North American Patristics Society (NAPS) board members, especially as we plan our own annual conference to be held in May 2020,” Brumback said. He serves as the secretary and treasurer of NAPS.
The Bible Land Passages series highlights key persons and events in the Old Testament and during the lifetime of Christ. Filmed on location in Israel, these documentaries are meant to help viewers understand the selected biblical events and understand their significance for today. The latest release is Brumback’s work on “The Tomb of Jesus” which looks at possible locations for the burial site of Christ. Twelve episodes have been completed with an anticipated final collection of 25.
Brumback spent six weeks in IsraeI during the summer of 2018 attaining his own photographs and videos of biblical sites, and learning more about the country and its history. Brumback incorporates the images and videos into his classroom instruction at FHU. Some of these materials are also utilized in episodes of Bible Land Passages which may be found at biblelandpassages.org.
