“Eyewitnesses” and the Gospels
In view of the massive interest in Richard Bauckham’s book arguing that “eyewitnesses” played a crucial role in the formation of the Gospels, I point to a recent article that queries some matters:
John N. Collins, “Re-thinking ‘Eyewitnesses’ in the Light of ‘Servants of the Word’ (Luke 1:2),” Expository Times 121/9 (2010): 447-52.
In view of the continuing interest in this subject, I have put my own invited review of Bauckham’s book on the “Essays, etc” page of this blog. (I’m afraid that I don’t actually recall where the review appeared! Too busy I guess.)
