7372Re: [GTh] Th79 vs. Lk 11:27-28 + 23:29
- Feb 1, 2007Applying my less than scholarly lay-criteria: "is it simplistic?
is it pastoral?" I've found that L.79.1-2 can be easily winnowed
other GTh material. L79.3 seems an unnecessary addendum.
If L79.3 is a Hellenize addition, as I suspect, this suggests
L79.1-2 is at least pre-Pauline.
Of course, Mark Goodacre's proposal doesn't address L79.3,
but a scholarly point by point comparison of .1-2 and Luke.
As I'm unqualified to comment on these points, I can only suggest
that these "things" seem to move chronologically from the
simple to the complex. If these qualities can be ascertained,
some insight might gained.
