Live Stream The Karl Barth Conference!

June 19, 2015

For those (like us) not fortunate enough to make the trek to Princeton Theological Seminary for this week’s annual Karl Barth Conference — on the theme “Karl Barth & the Gospels” — well, you’re in luck: the Seminary live-streams much of the conference.

In fact, it will reportedly do the same for plenary sessions of the Karl Barth Pastors Conference to follow — on the theme “Karl Barth & the Mission of the Church”.

Starting Sunday, June 21, tune your browser to:

The conference’s plenary sessions begin with Jürgen Moltmann’s opening lecture at Miller Chapel — titled “Predestination: Karl Barth’s Doctrine of the Election of Grace” (update: a recording can be found here).

The rest of the two conferences run from June 22-26, 2015, and the plenary sessions are scheduled as follows (all times Eastern Standard):

Monday June 22
8:45am – Eric Gregory: “‘The Gospel within the commandment’: Karl Barth on the Parable of the Good Samaritan”
11am – Willie Jennings: “A Rich Disciple? Karl Barth on the Rich Young Ruler”
2:15pm – Paul Dafydd Jones: “The Riddle of Gethsemane”
7pm – Karlfried Froehlich: “Karl Barth and the Isenheim Altarpiece”

Tuesday June 23
8:45am – Bruce L. McCormack: “The Passion of God Himself: the Cry of Dereliction in Barth’s Theology”
10:30am – Beverly Gaventa: “Reading Karl Barth’s Reading of the Road to Emmaus”
2:15pm – Richard Bauckham: “Karl Barth’s Interpretation of the Prologue to John’s Gospel”

Wednesday June 24
8:45am – Daniel L. Migliore: “Barth, Balthasar, and the Parable of the Lost Son”
7pm – Will Willimon: “How Karl Barth Taught Me to Preach”

Friday June 26
