A Common Written Greek Source for Mark and Thomas

This book uncovers an early collection of sayings, called N, that are ascribed to Jesus and are similar to those found in the Gospel of Thomas and in Q, a document believed to be a common source, with Mark, for Matthew and Luke. In the process, the book sheds light on the literary methods of Mark and Thomas. A literary comparison of the texts of the sayings of Jesus that appear in both Mark and Thomas shows that each adapted an earlier collection for his own purpose. Neither Mark nor Thomas consistently gives the original or earliest form of the shared sayings; hence, Horman states, each used and adapted an earlier source. Close verbal parallels between the versions in Mark and Thomas show that the source was written in Greek. Horman’s conclusion is that this common source is N.

This proposal is new, and has implications for life of Jesus research. Previous research on sayings attributed to Jesus has treated Thomas in one of two ways: either as an independent stream of Jesus sayings written without knowledge of the New Testament Gospels and or as a later piece of pseudo-Scripture that uses the New Testament as source. This book rejects both views.

Communal Reading in the Time of Jesus

A Window into Early Christian Reading Practices

By Brian J. Wright

Much of the contemporary discussion of the Jesus tradition has focused on aspects of oral performance, storytelling, and social memory, on the premise that the practice of communal reading of written texts was a phenomenon documented no earlier than the second century CE. Brian J. Wright overturns the premise that communal reading of written texts was a phenomenon documented no earlier than the second century CE by examining evidence for its practice in the first century.

Comparing Judaism and Christianity

Common Judaism, Paul, and the Innter and the Outer in Ancient Religion

by E. P. Sanders

Few scholars have so shaped the contemporary debate on the relation of early Christianity to early Judaism as E. P. Sanders, and no one has produced a clearer or more distinctive vision of that relationship as it was expressed in the figure of Paul the apostle. Gathered for the first time within one cover, here Sanders presents formative essays that show the structure of his approach and the insights it produces into Paul’s relationship to Judaism and the Jewish law.

A Complicated Pregnancy

Whether Mary was a Virgin and Why It Matters

By Kyle Roberts

The virgin birth is a much-loved story in the Christian tradition, but many theologians dispute the tradition of the virginal conception on both historical and scientific grounds.

A Protestant theologian, husband, and father, Kyle Roberts was growing unsure of his belief in Mary‘s virginity. So he set out to investigate the virgin birth from every angle.

A Complicated Pregnancy records his fascinating journey through the evidence and the myth, through history, biblical interpretation, and church politics. His conclusion surprised him, and it will surprise you, too.
