      Rethinking the Gospel Sources: From Proto-Mark to Mark
      by Delbert Royce Burkett
      Paperback
      Publisher: T & T Clark International; (September 2004)
      ISBN: 0567025500
      $35.00
      Description
      Burkett offers a fresh reading of the much-debated Synoptic Problem. He
      contends that each theory regarding the Synoptic Problem is contentious.
      Each presents a case for the mutual dependence of one source upon
      another-for example, Matthew and Luke depend primarily on Mark, but use
      each other where they report the same story not contained already in
      Mark. Neither Mark nor Matthew nor Luke served as the source for the
      other two, but all depended on a set of earlier sources now lost. The
      relations between the Synoptic Gospels are more complex than the simpler
      theories have assumed.

      The Original Language of the Lukan Infancy Narrative
      by Chang-Wook Jung
      Publisher: T & T Clark International;
      October 2004
      ISBN: 0567082059
      hardcover
      256 Pages
      $105.00
      SERIES: Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement
      Description
      It has long been recognized that the Greek of the Lukan infancy
      narrative (chapters 1-2) displays numerous Semitic features.
      Although the majority of recent scholarship assumes that such features
      stem from an imitation of the Septuagint (imitation theory), the issue
      has not been settled satisfactorily. Others argue that Luke probably
      relied on a written source for the infancy narrative-or at least for
      some parts of it-and that this source material was composed in imitation
      of the Septuagint. Luke was not, however, merely the reviser or compiler
      of his source; rather, he rewrote the source employing his own style and
      language for his own purpose.
      Here, Chang-Wook Jung examines the arguments most commonly put forward
      by both sides and considers their merits.

      A Student's Guide to Textual Criticism of the Bible: Its History,
      Methods and Results
      by Paul D. Wegner
      List Price: $17.00
      Price: $11.90
      Edition: Paperback
      Paperback: 208 pages
      Publisher: Intervarsity Press; (September 2004)
      ISBN: 0830827315
      About the Book
      The Bible has been on a long historical journey since its original
      composition. Its texts have been copied and recopied. And despite the
      most careful and painstaking efforts of scribes and publishers down
      through the centuries, errors of one sort or another have crept in and
      have been reproduced. Sorting out the errors and determining the
      original wording is the task of textual criticism.
      In fact, the task of textual criticism is so daunting and detailed that
      it is divided between Old Testament textual critics and New Testament
      textual critics. That is why nearly every book on the subject focuses on
      the textual criticism of either the Old or New Testament. But if you are
      one of those interested in a general understanding of textual criticism,
      this book introduces you to textual criticism of the whole Bible--the
      Hebrew Old Testament and the Greek New Testament.
      In plain language and with ample illustration, Paul D. Wegner gives you
      an overview of the history and methods, aims and results of textual
      criticism. In the process you will gain an appreciation for the vast
      work that has been accomplished in preserving the text of Scripture and
      find a renewed confidence in its reliability.

      A Textlinguistic Analysis of Selected Old Testament Texts in Matthew 1-4
      (Studies in Biblical Literature, 62)
      by Jeffery L. Capshaw
      List Price: $63.95
      Edition: Hardcover
      Hardcover: 232 pages ; Dimensions (in inches): 0.75 x 9.00 x 6.00
      Publisher: Peter Lang Publishing; (September 2004)
      ISBN: 0820469076
      Book Description
      While providing exciting research opportunities, the New Testament's use
      of the Old Testament continues to create interpretive difficulties.
      Although Matthew's use of the Old Testament generated much scholarly
      discussion throughout the historical-critical period, during the
      contemporary period specific interest in Matthew's Old Testament usage
      seemed to decrease. Recently, however, many powerful analytical
      approaches have come to the fore in biblical studies, including various
      text-centered methods such as textlinguistics (also known as discourse
      analysis). This book applies one specific type of discourse grammar to
      several Old Testament citations in Matthew's Gospel. This analysis is
      presented both to initiate discussion and to show how this and similar
      methods might be utilized to contribute important perspectives on the
      New Testament's use of the Old Testament.
