The Synoptic Problem: A Way Through the Maze (Understanding the Bible and Its World)

Probably the best literary enigma in heritage, The Synoptic challenge has interested generations of students who've questioned over the agreements, the disagreements, the differences and the peculiarities of the connection among the 1st 3 of our canonical Gospels. but The Synoptic challenge continues to be inaccessible to scholars, who're usually knotted up in its obvious complexities.

From the Gospel to the Gospels

The monograph discusses the quick formulae of the 'gospel' (euangelion) because the first mirrored expressions of Christian religion. They tailored the apocalyptic expectancies to precise the Easter event and formed the earliest literary Gospel (Mark). This publication analyzes Gospels as texts that (re-)introduced Jesus traditions into the Christian liturgy and literature.

Example text

However, given the prominence of scripture within the social context in which these sobriquets arose, this is not to suggest any deliberate secrecy or code. In fact, quite the opposite is true. As Bengtsson points out, the clarity with which the evaluative nature of the sobriquets is established (whether, in his opinion, ‘circumstantially constructed’ or ‘biblically adopted’) suggests that, far from being codenames, these sobriquets were transparent labels which served to ‘corroborate the message’ (2000a: 37) conveyed in the texts.

Cf. Strawn 2007: 87–111. The Sobriquets and the Scrolls 27 sectarian composition and evidence for ideological development attested by the texts, the sobriquets may likewise have undergone a developmental process, changing in form and perhaps meaning and/or referent. It further suggests that this process might be evidenced within the scrolls themselves if examined in a manner sensitive to the varied composition dates of the texts and with particular reference to the precise forms taken by the sobriquets where they appear.

Whether explicitly or implicitly, the sobriquets perform an evaluative function (confirmation of which can often be found in the surrounding context), in that each ‘conveys correctly the author’s estimate of the characters concerned’ (Harris 1966: 53–54). For example, Bengtsson’s socalled ‘circumstantially constructed sobriquets’ (Fro¨hlich’s ‘symbolic names’) are for the most part explicitly evaluative; they reveal something of the character of the person or group labelled. ‘The Wicked Priest’ is first and foremost a priest, but furthermore one deemed to be ‘wicked’ by those doing the labelling; the sobriquet itself performs judgement on the character.
