Re: [Synoptic-L] Dating the NT (Added Note)
Sorry, I forgot to mention this.
You may find of interest a volume of collected studies that Brill
Academic Publishers is releasing this month, Jesus' Last Week:
Jerusalem Studies in the Synoptic Gospels: Volume One. With the ink
barely dry, it will be on display at SBL. To my mind, it is not
simply the historical or biblical content that is important but the
methodological issues that are on display in the work.
An anticipated second volume will actually address specifically the
issue of Hebrew in the first century and its importance in our reading
of the Gospels.
These are studies by Jewish and Christian scholars who live or have
lived in Jerusalem and work with an intimate knowledge of Hebrew and
the contours of Jewish thought at the close of the Second Temple
period. What the authors share in common is a deep appreciation for
the importance of Hebrew and first century Judaism for our reading of
the Synoptic Gospels.
