Mega congratulations to my colleague Ben Merkle on his installtion today in the Dr. M. O. Owens Jr. Chair of New Testament Studies.
Here we are with Dr. Owens' daughters at the reception for Ben after the service.
Ben, I could not be more grateful for your friendship through the years and for your partnership in the guild of New Testament scholars, nor could I be more excited to see you hold this distinguished chair. Ad multos annos!
