Historical Jesus

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Historical Jesus section welcomes proposals for three sessions. 1) The itinerancy of Jesus and his disciples. This session focuses on Jesus’ itinerancy in a broad sense, e.g., practicalities, geography, gender, hospitality, and history of research. 2) Synagogue and the historical Jesus. We invite papers on the role of the synagogue in Jesus’ ministry as well as on the function, forms of institution, or archaeology of synagogues at the time of Jesus. These two themed sessions will include a few invited papers. 3) The third session is an open session and welcomes proposals on topics related to the research on the historical Jesus.
