SBL Session on Genocide in the Bible: Pictures from Cairo

Last Saturday we met here in Cairo to watch a session of the Society of Biblical Literature Annual Meeting in Baltimore on genocide in the Bible. When the session in Baltimore ended, our group here in Egypt took time to talk more about the theme, which led to a stimulating discussion. Moreover, the first seeds may have been sown for an Egyptian Society of Biblical Studies of some kind or another.

Thanks to Christopher Hooker and the International Cooperation Initiative of the Society of Biblical Literature for making this live connection between America and Egypt possible!
