Bulletin for Biblical Research 27:4 (2017)

Lissa M. Wray Beal, "The Past as Threat and Hope: Reading Joshua with Numbers," 461-483
In the narrative of the Transjordanian altar in Josh 22, a perceived threat against Israel is presented and overcome. The chapter is literarily connected to Num 13–14 and 32. While historical-critical methods might attribute such connections to a Priestly source, this article works with the canonical text and a literary method to explore these intertextual connections. Extending the exploration throughout the book of Joshua, it demonstrates these literary resonances contribute to significant themes in Joshua. This article addresses two questions: how Num 13–14 and 32 shape the message of Josh 22 and the book's epilogue (chs. 22–24) and whether Num 13–14 and 32 function similarly in Joshua as they do in Numbers. It concludes that Num 13–14 and 32 profoundly shape the message of Josh 22 and Joshua's epilogue, showing Israel's future is open to hope of promises fulfilled, as well as the possibility of failure and sin.

James R. Edwards, "Parallels and Patterns between Luke and Acts," 485-501
This article examines various parallels or patterns between the Third Gospel and book of Acts. Parallels are determined by identical words, phrases, contextual similarities, and sequential agreement of data between Luke's two-part work. Prototypes from the life of Jesus in the Third Gospel are repeated or amplified in Acts with reference to episodes involving Peter, John, Stephen, Philip, the first evangelists to the Gentiles in Antioch, and above all, the Apostle Paul, who commands two-thirds of the Luke–Acts parallels. The passion of Jesus is the most important element of the Third Gospel for Lukan parallels, serving as a prototype of three-quarters of the antitypes in Acts, especially as a prototype for a “passion of Paul.” The article concludes by considering the purpose and significance of Luke–Acts parallels, especially as they are illustrated by the Lukan master-disciple paradigm, “A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully outfitted will be like his teacher” (Luke 6:40).

Richard Bauckham, "Is “High Human Christology” Sufficient? A Critical Response to J. R. Daniel Kirk's A Man Attested by God," 503-525
J. R. Daniel Kirk's book A Man Attested by God argues that the Christology of the Synoptic Gospels should be understood as “high human Christology,” placing Jesus within a category of “idealized human figures” who, in Jewish literature, are “identified with God.” He claims to refute my argument for “divine identity Christology,” but in fact he badly misunderstands it, as his constant use of the vague term identified with God (which I do not use of Jesus) shows. My claim is that Jesus is “included in the unique identity of God” because he rules the whole universe from the cosmic throne of God above the heavens, the throne on which, in Jewish literature, no one but God sits. Other human figures, such as the kings of Israel, share in God's rule only in the sense that, as servants of God, they exercise a limited sphere of authority on earth. The article goes on to discuss Matthew's Christology in particular, showing that Kirk's category “idealized human figure” cannot do justice to major features of Matthew's Gospel that indicate Jesus's inclusion within the unique divine identity.

Frank F. Judd Jr., "A Case for the Authenticity of Luke 23:17," 527-537
Luke 23:17 is not included in modern Greek New Testaments and most modern translations. The external evidence is fairly equal for the inclusion and exclusion of the verse. The deciding factor is usually that P75 does not contain this verse. New evidence from a catena of Origen demonstrates the existence of a manuscript containing Luke 23:17 as early as P75. Some conclude that a scribe added this verse to harmonize Luke with other Gospel accounts. A closer examination of Luke 23:17, however, shows that it is not a scribal harmonization but is thoroughly Lukan. This study presents a case that Luke 23:17 is authentic and was omitted by a scribe who wanted to emphasize the demand of the Jewish crowd and leaders that Jesus be crucified.

Biblical Annals 8:1 (2018)

Marcin Kowalski, "God the Benefactor and His Human Clients in Rom. 5–8," 47-69
The author applies the patron-client model to read the relationship between God and man in Rom. 5–8. First, the model and its basic features are presented in the context of the Greco-Roman society, including its applicability to divinity. Next, the various elements of the model are traced in Rom. 5–8 (asymmetry, exchange of goods, personal relationship, favoritism, reciprocity, kinship language, honor and voluntary entrance). The article finishes with the advantages of reading Rom. 5–8 through the lens of the patron-client relationship.

Knut Backhaus, "Inspiration and Truth in the Book of Revelation. An Exegetical Comment on the Pontifical Biblical Commission’s Document “Ispirazione e verità della Sacra Scrittura” (2014)," 71-91
The Book of Revelation confronts its readers with the problem of violence and irrationality, thereby putting at stake its claim to inspiration and truth. In a canonical and pastoral approach, the document of the Pontifical Biblical Commission explains this unruly book as an expression of Christ’s “burning love”. However, Revelation offers its reader a dramatic counter-world, in which neither love nor logic may be learnt but the coping with passion and “tears”. The visionary strategy (1) gives the Christians insights into their own truth, (2) establishes their very own, “heavenly” perspective, (3) meticulously provides them with theocentric knowledge of the purpose of their everyday struggles, (4) transforms them by a dramatic experience of redemption, and (5) lets them encounter Christ in an experience of longing and trust.

Marginalia: Αποκάλυψη και αυθεντία / Marginalia: Revelation and authority

Στην ιστοσελίδα του ηλεκτρονικού περιοδικού Marginalia φιλοξενείται μία πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα συζήτηση για την αποκάλυψη, την αυθεντία και το ρόλο της Παράδοσης στον Ιουδαϊσμό και κυρίως στο δυτικό Χριστιανισμό: 


[Α.Τ.:  Απουσιάζει βέβαια η Ορθόδοξη πλευρά από τη συζήτηση. Το θέμα της Παράδοσης παραμένει ένα από τα θέματα που πρέπει να συζητηθεί σε βάθος από τους Ορθόδοξους βιβλικούς (κι όχι μόνο) θεολόγους. Mία ενδιαφέρουσα συμβολή στη διαδικτυακή συζήτηση είναι το άρθρο του John Behr στο αξιόλογο ιστολόγιο Public Orthodoxy: 


Μία επίσης πρώτη προσπάθεια προσέγγισης του θέματος έγινε στο βιβλικό συνέδριο με τον τίτλο «Ορθόδοξη Ερμηνευτική της Καινής Διαθήκης: Ιστορία, θεωρία, προοπτικές», που διοργανώθηκε στον Βόλο, από το Τμήμα Μελέτης της Χειρόγραφης Παράδοσης της Καινής Διαθήκης" της Ακαδημίας Θεολογικών Σπουδών Βόλου.]
