Gospel Perspectives Vols 2, 3 & 5 Poll Results are in

I wanted to thank those who contributed to the poll to select the single article from each volume of Gospel Perspectives Vols. 2, 3 & 5 which I have been given permission from the Publisher to reproduce. It made an extremely difficult job a whole lot easier! Here as promised are the titles of the articles that I have decided to use:

Vol. 2

D.A. Carson, “Historical Tradition in the Fourth Gospel: After Dodd, What?” pp.83-146.

This was the majority opinion and was also the one that I was keen to use. Don Carson has now granted permission for me to go ahead.

Vol. 3

Bruce Chilton, “Varieties and Tendencies of Midrash: Rabbinic Interpretation of Isaiah 24.23” pp.9-32.

This was the most difficult for me to assess as I know little about this area and so I went with Michael Bird’s recommendation because his post indicated that he had read the articles. Permission from the author is still pending.

Vol. 5

Richard Bauckham, “The Study of Gospel Traditions Outside the Canonical Gospels: Problems and Prospects,” 369-404.

This was the majority vote. Richard Bauckham granted permission this morning.

I am expecting volumes 1 and 4 from the British Library shortly and will post a new poll for each as they arrive.
