the little tradition in Galilee
- With apologies for cross posting.
Can anyone tell me what the substance of the claim is -- made, so I'm
told (and am just now beginning to investigate), in recent studies on
Galilee -- that with respect to the story and the hope of Israel
Galileans maintained a "little tradition" alongside (or in contrast
with) a "greater tradition" espoused by Judeans?
What is this little tradition? What are its sources?
And what, if anything, are scholars who are speaking of the Galilean
"little tradition" saying with respect to how it might have shaped
Jesus' views of the hope of Israel and how the people of God should show
faithfulness to their God?
