The Farrer Theory and the Historical Jesus
- For many scholars, the synoptic problem is not an end,
but a means to an end: understanding the historical
Jesus. I can see how these two issues are related on
the Q side, where Q has been important for accessing
the teachings of Jesus, but what about the Farrer-side
of the issue. Aside from E. P. Sanders, perhaps, I
can't think of any detailed approaches to the HJ from
the Farrer perspective. Am I missing any one? What
would it look like?
