A third thoughtful interaction on Chris Keith’s Jesus against the Scribal Elite

Professor-Skinner-203x300 51SQKc9K3KL  Chris-Keith-lecture14

Here’s the third of the series of interesting interactions of scholars with my colleague Chris Keith over his excellent book Jesus against the Scribal Elite (first here and second here, plus my original review here). This time Chris Skinner engages with the book and focuses on issues around criteria for authenticity, and the offensiveness of suggesting that Jesus was illiterate to his (generally highly literate) followers today. Chris Keith provides a feisty and clarifying response. Worth a read!
