Re: [John_Lit] OFF topic: Ideal NT introduction
- Dear Jeffrey
One thought that comes to mind is a chronological column orientating student
to events / literature developing throughout the non Greco-Roman world. I
was recently struck by the fact that it was a Roman Catholic scholar,
reading through Chinese literature and its dates, who first recognised that
the biblical chronology was culturally limited, who first started to
question the age of the earth. Perhaps another column could chronicle
classical events and writers to assist orientation and wider reading.
Hope this is of some value.
throughout the entire world.

Subject: [John_Lit] OFF topic: Ideal NT introduction
Forgive the off topic nature of this question, but I'd be very
interested to hear your answers to the following question:
If you were able to construct an Introduction to the NT for
undergraduates, what would you place in it. How would it differ from
those that are currently on the market?
Please reply OFF LIST to me at jgibson000@....
