Here’s a further post in the ongoing symposium on Chris Keith’s valuable book Jesus against the Scribal Elite, this time by Tobias Hägerland (Lund University, Sweden), along with a response by Prof. Keith. (See my note on the first one here and my review of the book here.) Prof. Hägerland suggests that Prof. Keith understates the political and religious threat Jesus provided by being a public teacher who was regarded by the elite as untrained and an ‘illiterate text-broker’. Prof. Keith in response accepts Prof. Hägerland’s point and agrees that he might have developed it more fully. This is proving to be a fascinating conversation between Chris Keith and his interlocutors.
