The Jesus Seminar on Acts continues its work and plans to publish down
the line. Joseph Tyson and Richard Pervo, who are participants in this
seminar, do plan to have their own books on Acts out either this Fall
or by early '07. This is the first meeting I have attended in several
years and I do not know the answer to your question about additional
material. What I can say is that at this meeting a vote was taken
about the dating of Acts and the person presenting the paper, Dennis
Smith, and Tyson who was there favor a second century dating, sometimes
in the middle or later years of the second decade. I did not hear the
final tally of the group vote on this, but it will be forthcoming.
