- Old in the New has posted some PDFs of Cowley & Neubauer’s Hebrew Sirach (1897). A nice little addition to my digital library. Thank!
- Chris Tilling continues his Book Review of Fee’s Pauline Christology (which I have mentioned previously). You can begin view each piece on one page by going to this table of contents. It appears that there will be 11 parts to this review. Sheesh!
- Mark Goodacre has posted the contents (with links) of the latest Harvard Theological Review. I am most interested in the articles by Epp (mentioned yesterday), and MacLean: “Barabbas, the Scapegoat Ritual, and the Development of the Passion Narrative”…though the article by Snyder also looks interesting: “‘Above the Bath of Myrtinus’: Justin Martyr’s ‘School’ in the City of Rome.” [Links are to abstracts.]
- More on this Jesus Project fiasco from Christopher Heard.
- Tim at SansBlogue has responded to my post “Of Texts and Hypertexts.” Check it out: “Mouth-feel and the Bible.” Tim makes an excellent point (whether he wants to own up to it or not): many folks read newspapers, magazines, and (I will say it) academic articles with the same care that they read websites (which is to say: “not much”). I’ve actually witnessed this.
- Lingamish gets calm. Friends find me odd because I’m excited about footnotes and the history of punctuation and other “oddities.” It is sad to consider the plight of dying grammatical units. I remember reading an article once about the dying adverb. How sad. Truly sad.
- Wow: “The Talmud According to Bart Simpson.” Wow.
- Off-Topic: Old in the New drew my attention to indexed. Quite a funny blog!
Have an excellent weekend!
