Couldn't this same charge be levied against evangelical scholars in their attempts to explain Matt 24.34?
What's on my mind?
Reports of my ipod shuffle's death were premature! It survived the wash, along with my student ID. Huzzah!
i ran my ipod shuffle through the wash. it no longer works. i'm really gonna miss that thing.
I am a huge fan of April DeConick's work on The Gospel of Thomas and benefitted from it extensively in the writing of my own thesis on Thomas--available in a forthcoming volume from Kregel! :)--and her blog is fantastic as well. But surely I'm not the only person who noticed that her recent (well-received) critiques of the Jesus Seminar were made just as forcefully two years ago in Komoszewski's, Sawyer's, and Wallace's Reinventing Jesus. To be fair, I don't doubt there were plenty of others before them who made similar critiques as well, but still, seems a bit odd to me.
