The Pericope Adulterae, the Gospel of John, and the Literacy of Jesus (New Testament Tools, Studies and Documents) Paperback – May 20, 2009
This title has won the 2010 John Templeton Award for Theological Promise. 'Keith's impressive, thought-provoking study will be of great interest to tholse interested in the Gospel of John, literacy in the Greco-Roman world, and intersections between textual history and Christian origins.' Frances Taylor Gench, 20 (2012) 'This book presents an impressively researched, inquisitive, and careful discussion of its primary focus (the Pericope Adulterae), its primary field (John s Gospel), and its primary point (the social significance of portraying a grapho-literate Jesus). ' Rafael Rodriguez, Johnson Bible College, Knoxville, TN 37998 '[Dieses Werk] befasst sich auf erfrischende und kreative Weise mit einer textgeschichtlich seit Erasmus von Rotterdam umstrittenen Perikope. [...] Es wird nicht nur in den Stand der Forschung uber eine textgeschichtlich und theologisch-ethisch umstrittene Perikope, [..] umfassend und kompetent eingefuhrt, sondern es werden auch frisch und mutig neue Hypothesen auf argumentative Weise vorgetragen.' Ulrich Busse, Theologische Literaturzeitung 135 (2010) '...a most worth-while volume that will be a benefit not only to those in textual criticism, but also those more broadly in the field of New Testament studies and early Christian history.[...] Overall, Keith s volume is an excellent contribution to the study of the PA and no doubt will alter the direction of future research on this passage.[...]an excellent resource for New Testament scholars. Not only does it make an impressive (and convincing) contribution to our understanding of the PA, but it illumines other important areas of early Christianity along the way.' Michael J. Kruger, A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism, http: //purl.org/TC, 2011"
From the Back Cover
Although consistently overlooked or dismissed, John 8.6, 8 in the "Pericope Adulterae" is the only place in canonical or non-canonical Jesus tradition that portrays Jesus as writing. After establishing that John 8.6, 8 is indeed a claim that Jesus could write, this book offers a new interpretation and transmission history of the "Pericope Adulterae." Not only did the pericope s interpolator place the story in John s Gospel in order to highlight the claim that Jesus could write, but he did so at John 7.53 8.11 as a result of carefully reading the Johannine narrative. The final chapter of the book proposes a plausible socio-historical context for the insertion of the story. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
