[Synoptic-L] Canonical-Criticism list announcement
- Dear List Members:
It would be an interesting study for someone to determine the genealogy of
of the closely related discussion groups that include Syoptic-L, Crosstalk,
Kata Markon, Johannine-Literature, and the very recent Biblical-Studies.
certain Jim Wests biblical-discussion group is the "academic father" of the
list being announced here. If it werent for Jims example, I might never
summoned the courage to emark on this.
The Canonical Criticism Discussion List is intended as a forum for the
discussion of the "canonical shape" of documents that comprise the Old and New
Testaments. It is intended to be an opportunity for interested people to post
observations and questions regarding the entire spectrum of meaning,
implications behind, consequences of, and theology associated with the
canonical form of scripture. By "canonical form" of scripture is meant the
evolved or extant versions of NT and OT texts sensu Brevard S. Childs, and
assumes that the documents comprising scripture arrived at their canonical
under divine guidance.
Academic and non-academic questions will be allowed. Everyone may
Scholars, clergy, interested by-standers, Christians and non-Christians alike.
Inappropriate posts, personal confessions, abrasive comments, and spam of any
sort will not be tolerated. Those who don't understand this limitation will
soon find themselves removed from the list.
