Synoptic Gospels


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Synoptic Gospels section invites proposals for papers on the content or formation of any of the Synoptic Gospels, and we especially are interested in papers that address the relationship between two or more of the gospels or deal with themes that touch on multiple gospels. One session, sponsored jointly by the Bible in Ancient and Modern Media Section, will focus on ancient media culture and the Synoptic Gospels; proposals are invited for papers that view the Synoptic Problem, or composition of the Synoptic Gospels, through the lens of new models of oral tradition, ancient manuscript culture, performance, and collective memory. Successful proposals will apply one or several of these and/or related theoretical models to established critical questions. A fourth session will be a joint session with the John, Jesus and History group, and will address relationships between John and Luke; for this session only invited papers will be read.
