Theological and Theoretical Issues in the Synoptic Problem, Hardback Book

Theological and Theoretical Issues in the Synoptic Problem Hardback

Edited by Professor John S. (University of Toronto, Canada) Kloppenborg, Joseph (KU Leuven, Belgium) Verheyden

Part of the The Library of New Testament Studies series


This volume addresses the Synoptic Problem and how it emerged in a historical context closely connected with challenges to the historical reliability of the gospels; questions the ability of scholarship arriving at a compelling reconstruction of the historical Jesus; the limits of the canon; and an examination of the relationship between the historical reliability of gospel material and ecclesial dogma that was presumed to flow from the gospels.

The contributors, all experts in the Synoptic Problem, probe various sites and issues in the 19th and 20th century to elaborate how the Synoptic Problem and scholarship on the synoptic gospels was seen to complement, undergird, or complicate theological views.

By exploring topics ranging from the Q hypothesis to the Markan priority and the Two Document hypothesis, this volume supplies extensive theological context to the beginnings of synoptic scholarship from an entirely new perspective.
