Here’s the final (fourth) response to my colleague Chris Keith’s Jesus against the Scribal Elite in the fine Syndicate Symposium discussion which Chris Tilling has been moderating (see links here, here and here to previous posts about this discussion, and here to my review of the book). This time Jason Lamoreaux writes a thoughtful ‘review essay’ of issues in Keith’s book from the perspective of his lecture room in a US state university, often teaching (as he tells us) students from an evangelical or conservative background. Lamoreaux raises questions about the validity or value of historical Jesus studies, Keith’s approach to questions of historicity, the compatibility of the different perspectives on Jesus in the four canonical Gospels, and much else—and Keith responds engagingly and well to these questions. Worth reading!
