Requirements for Participation

Synoptic Gospels


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Synoptic Gospels section invites proposals for papers for its open sessions 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. The Synoptic Gospels section also invites proposals for an open session for papers that deal with how research in ancient media or social memory influences an understanding of the form and content of the Synoptic Gospels. We welcome paper proposals that address the role of ancient media or social memory in the composition of one or more Synoptic Gospels. In addition, there will be one invited session, co-sponsored with the Q Section, examining two books: Alan Kirk’s Q in Matthew (2016) and Chris Keith’s Jesus’ Literacy: Scribal Culture and the Teacher from Galilee (2013).
