[XTalk] re: Seminar Voting
>> Please also review Mahlon Smith's (a JS Fellow) Jesus Seminar Forum pageat
http://religion.rutgers.edu/jseminar/ and, within that collection of pages,
this article by Bob Miller (also a JS Fellow) that contains sections on the
issues of voting and consensus:
Have the details of the voting been published anywhere ? It would
be interesting to know what the actual voting was for each of the four
categories on each issue.
Even more interesting would be votes taken before and after the discussion,
to see if anybody's mind was changed (as the criticism directed at the JS
says that they were mainly sceptics to begin with) but that may be too much
to hipe for :-)

The May-June issue of the of the Jesus Seminar's "Fourth R" has all the
voting from the Spring 2000 meeting. This includes votes on Jesus and
apocalyptic, resurrection and life after death, and the book of Acts 1-12.
As an example, Q was voted as not apocalyptic. The rest of the votes
would be too long and detailed to report here. The single issue can be
bought from Westar for $4.50.
