Ending Discussion of Thatcher's "Legend"
- Thanks to Tom Thatcher for agreeing to have his SBL paper discussed first on our
Spring schedule of "focused discussions," and thanks to those who participated
actively (as well as everyone who "sat in" and "read along")! Despite the slow
start (due to technological problems), we've had some interesting posts, which
also raised other questions that we might want to pursue in greater detail later
(e.g. priority of Fourth Gospel vs. Johannine Epistles?).
Anyone should feel free to post one additional message about Tom's paper (and
Tom is still free to respond, of course), but it's also time to prepare for the
next papers on our schedule:
Jan. 15-21 Jeffrey L. Staley Liar Liar: Jesus, This Woman, and the Law in
Jan. 22-28 [break week]
J.29Feb.4 Colleen Conway The Politics of the Johannine Drama
Feb. 5-11 Michael Newheart Bye-Word: A "Soul Reading" of Jesus' Farewell
Discourse (John 13-17)
Feb. 12-18 Jo-Ann Brant The Theatricality of Johannine Dialogue
Feb. 19-25 [break week]
For links to these papers (and the schedule for March and beyond),
So that we can still access the papers even if a web-server goes down (as Tom's
server was last weekend, or mine might also be sometime), I will also put
duplicate copies of the papers to be discussed in the current and upcoming weeks
in the "Files" section of our "E-Groups" homepage:
http://www.egroups.com/group/johannine_literature (click "Files") or directly at
http://www.egroups.com/files/johannine_literature/. Our discussion schedule and
protocols, and some of our informational webpages are also now available in this
PLEASE ALSO NOTE:
Some of the "Links" on the E-groups copies of these webpages may not work (some
"internal links" on pages originally written for the "Johannine Literature Web"
do not transfer properly to the E-Groups server), but the basic content of these
pages should be the same.
