- Mark Matson has graciously agreed and invited discussion on the paper he read at SBL this past November. The paper is located at
http://www.milligan.edu/administrative/mmatson/Matthew%20Audience%20Text.pdf and as is apparent from the URL is in PDF format.
The purpose of this announcement and excercise is to invite and encourage discussion of Mark's paper and its ideas.
Mark described the paper to me in this way:
I will say that this paper was an "experiment" --
> deliberately setarbitrarily
> > myself the task of seeing what I could do with some
> > selected sections of Matthew using the Bauckham idea as the"proof"
> > I think it worked up to a point, but there is no
> there, and itSo, please do take a look and offer comments, couter arguments, ask questions etc.
> > is only one step in an inductive approach to seeing Matthew
> > interacting forthrightly and interactively with Mark. In
> other words,
> > my paper is experimental and in some ways weak
BTW, I'm working on others to hold discussions with as well.
