My Favorite Line from the 2019 ETS Meeting

I attended around twenty sessions recently at the annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society in San Diego. Some sessions were better than others. My favorite line  award goes to Abner Chou who noted that, "for the psalms to have messianic theology, it must have messianic theology" ("Messiah in the Psalms: Intertextuality, Davidic Covenant, and the Psalter," p. 8). This might not seem all the remarkable to some but keep in mind that there has been a noticeable shift away from seeing psalms as messianic within recent scholarship.
