About IBC

The Infusion Bible Conference – IBC (formerly, The Institute of Biblical Context Conference) was launched in 2017 as a joint partnership between Doug Greenwold (of Preserving Bible Times) and Brad Gray (of Walking The Text) to create a 3-day event where people could get a crash course in studying the Bible in its original context.

Context is everything, and yet most people haven’t been taught how to engage the Bible in its original context. Which is why the IBC provides this 3-day learning experience where the 6 lenses of biblical context (history, culture, geography, visual settings, language, and literary design) are taught, so that by infusing the context into the Text, people can better understand and teach the Bible in all its vivid glory.

Each year a new topic is explored, and an expert faculty is gathered based on the topic to teach and instruct participants. This includes not only sharing their own unique insights into the context of God’s Word, but also their approaches to studying the Bible, their favorite study resources, and anything else they believe will help participants better understand and live out the truths of Scripture.

Past conference topics include: Jesus In His Context (2017), Shepherds, Flocks, and Kings (2018),
The Last Days of Jesus (2019), and Paul and His Roman World (2021). IBC 2020 was postponed due to COVID-19. Past faculty include: Dr. Gary M. Burge, Geoff Carroll, George DeJong, Brad Gray, Doug Greenwold, Danielle Parish, Dr. Cyndi Parker, Dr. Chad Pierce, Brad Nelson, Stacie Post, Dr. Randall Smith, and Rod & Libby VanSolkema.

This conference is offered twice in 2022. We invite you to join us in beautiful Franklin, Tennessee (just outside of Nashville), August 8-10 and in Parker, Colorado (just outside of Denver), August 15-17 as we explore John: His Life, Legacy, and Last Words. If you can't attend in person, you can attend via livestream.
