I haven't tracked down all these references and read them, so consider this only a prospective recommendation.
Thanks, Peter. That list has kickstarted my search for certain specifics.
What specifics were you wanting to investigate? Now you have me curious...

Re: If the synoptic gospels are three different translations of a common Hebrew or Aramaic source

Can anyone recommend titles worth reading that address the quality and style of Greek as found in the various canonical gospels and acts? Horae synopticae : contributions to the study of the Synoptic problem (J. C. Hawkins, 1899 - online ) The style and literary method of Luke, I. The Diction of Lu...

Re: on Harvard Theological Review's failure to retract

Bullshit and postmodernist ideology (the shallow kind) are not the same thing as lies and falsehoods. King pretends to be a historian of Christian antiquity. So much of what she is on the record saying and doing from 2012 till now about the “GJW” is activism and sensationalism, not historical schol...

Re: on Harvard Theological Review's failure to retract

I've read the book, and my opinions have changed. It also seems correct, but it's another case of not proving intent. To show intent, it would have to be combined with evidence that there was a well-known precedent that made not disclosing the "interpersonal relationships" an unusual and u...

Re: on Harvard Theological Review's failure to retract

Mr. Sabar certainly doesn't let the truth get in the way of a good rhetorical flourish: Hot takes scattered across different online forums in multiple countries over two years were no match for the dreadnought of a single, peer-reviewed journal bearing the name Harvard. There was a good chance that ...

Re: on Harvard Theological Review's failure to retract

instead of debunking the statement A good dictionary will go a long way here. A fraud is someone who uses lies, things they know aren't true, in the attempt to deceive others. This is quite the claim. It would have to be put into context to have a bit more meaning: what were the lies told? Did King...

Re: on Harvard Theological Review's failure to retract

I’m surprised to see people coming to her defense. Not everything is black and white. We all know that King made mistakes and failed to overcome her own biases at the time. I was defending the fact that King published and the fact that there was no "retraction" by the HTR. Publishing was ...
