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

Very likely the best literary enigma in historical past, The Synoptic challenge has involved generations of students who've wondered 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.

Does Old Testament Theology Still Have Independent Significance? 27 Naturally, this is not at all to deny that the history of Israelite-Jewish religion can also be portrayed from another standpoint, just as long as there, too, methodological reflection and clarification regarding this standpoint has preceded.

In this way, historical knowledge frees faith from sub-Christian religious forms of the Old Testament and does justice to them at the same time, since it teaches us to consider them as historically conditioned. How dangerous it is to combine the two approaches can be shown with particular clarity from the Old Testament. It is here especially clear that Procksch’s statement—that faith remains the organ even of historical reflection for the Christian—is to be questioned. We have examples in the Old Testament of historical reflection and of historical description in which faith was the decisive factor.
