As a certified lay speaker in the UM church, I am exploring the possibility of starting a biblical storytelling ministry. I have told biblical stories in the past, from the text and in first-person narrative, and feel the urge to have a more defined ministry.

I started to write about the Bible as Theatre in the mid 1970s.

In 1996 it was Tel Aviv University's turn to host the yearly International Federation (of) Theatre Research conference. I proposed the title Theatre and Holy Script, and later edited the book by the same name (sussex Academic Press 1999), a number of studies in the field. However, and to me not less important, A Bible and Theatre Desert workshop.

* and her hands on the threshold (Judges 19:28) in Hebrew [2000, “Veyadeha al Hassaf”, (Premiere TAU, 2000)

* Meine Schwester, Meine Braut (SOS), a European production, also feminist-oriented (Basel, 1997)

* and, these very days, Die Bibel als Theater (tentative title) at the municipal theatre in Bern, Switzerland; a one woman show to open Feb. 18th 2009.

* The next production is planned for Tel Aviv University's Theatre, towards June 2009.

I have studied and taught biblical studies and orality-literacy matters for nearly 50 years. I have many valued colleagues in various disciplines related to these concerns. Werner H. Kelber is a long time friend. My current work focuses on the issues raised by performance criticism, particularly on its interdisciplinary character.

I am current teaching an interdisciplinary course based on the work of Marhall McLuhan, Walter Ong, and John Miles Foley.

An expert in the study of Paul's letters, she published her first book in 1988: The Pauline Churches: A Socio-Historical Study of Institutionalization in the Pauline and Deutero-Pauline Writings (Cambridge University Press). Since that time, Professor MacDonald has continued to publish and develop university courses that pay special attention to the social setting of early Christianity in the Roman Empire. She has also authored a commentary of the deutero-Pauline epistles, Colossians and Ephesians, (Vol. 17 of the New Testament Commentary series, Sacra Pagina, Daniel J. Harrington, S.J. ed. Collegeville, Minnesota: The Liturgical Press, 2000) which has received praise for its social-scientific approach.

Participated in the last two years of the NBS scholars forum.  I have been interested in pattern recognition methods that highlight built-in memory methods within oral material written in places such as the Sermon on the Mount (Matthe 5-7) and the ramifications for interpretation of the written text.

Scribes and scribalism, libraries and archives; oral and written transmission; translation. I work on the transmission and reception of Achaemenid ideologies across the Persian Empire through the media of writing and iconography. Translation and multi-lingualism is an important component of this transmission. In the past I have worked extensively on Chronicles.

Orality and biblical performance criticism

Academic
Chariton
Centre for Theology and Religious Studies, Lund University, Sweden

With a background in the fields of ancient history and classical Greek I have a particular interest in how New Testament texts functioned in the ancient Greek and Roman world. In my thesis project I investigate how texts were orally delivered in antiquity and what that implies when it comes to the performance of New Testament writings, the Gospel of John in particular.
