Jesus, Q, and the Dead Sea Scrolls in RBL!




The Review of Biblical Literature just published a review of my book, Jesus, Q, and the Dead Sea Scrolls (Mohr Siebeck). Many thanks to Dr. Michael Labahn for the many kind comments. The review is in German, but he calls it a “carefully structured” (“sorgfaltig strukturierten”) study that displays “great erudition and knowledge” (“eine große Belesenheit und Kenntnis”), presents “new arguments and fresh methodological approaches” (“neue Argumente und frische Methodenansätze”), and “sets new standards” (“setzt neue Akzente”) in identifying the sociological and geographical location of Q. Dr. Labahn raises some important questions that I'll be addressing in a paper in this year's Q Section at the annual meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature. Looking forward to it!
