Neville's Review of Burkett

David Neville has reviewed Delbert Burkett's Rethinking the Gospel Sources: From Proto-Mark to Mark in Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses 84/1 (2008) 135-173. Neville helpfully provides some history and context for previous Urmarkus theories before addressing Burkett's arguments against direct literary dependence between any of the synoptic Gospels.

I was wondering whether to summarise some of it here. I think for now I will just say that Neville is as usual good with assessing arguments.

Hi there

I'm getting in touch with folk who run New Testament or Biblical History blogs at the moment. I'm sure anyone who reads your blog, as well as yourself would be interested in my radio show webpage where debates between leading Biblical scholars are often featured.

E.g. January is taken up with Ehrman debating Peter J Williams on Misquoting Jesus, then Debating Richard Swinburne on the Problem of suffering, and last week and this is Michael F Bird and James G Crossley debating their joint book "How did Christianity begin?"

You can listen back to the shows online, download the mp3 or subscribe to the podcast

If you would post a blog on it, I would be most grateful, and you may wish to add it to the selection of places to visit on your own blog
