Re(2): [John_Lit] Re: PAvPP
- Thanks, Ken, good points to consider, although predictions made do not
imply necessarily predictions fulfilled (on both sons of Z).
You're right that the issue has moved far beyond Parker, and other
assertions will be analyzed in due time, but it's impressive to me how
much the non-identity of the BD has been taken over, often uncritically by
NT scholars as though it is an unquestioned platform upon which to
construct our new programs and theories. So raising the larger set of
issues may also be a way to go, although pretty soon we're talking of
several chapters in a book instead of an essay. Then again, Parker's
essay (see Charlesworth and Schnackenburg) is one of the most sustained
pieces on the theme, so it does merit special analysis.
Thanks for the input!
