They have a recent festschrift in honor of them – in the same book! The title of the book is Israel’s God and Rebecca’s Children: Christology and COmmunity in Early Judaism and Christianity. They co-founded a scholarly club that relates to christology (which made it into SBL/AAR). What is amazing is the number of scholars of high caliber who wanted to participate in this FS.
Here is a sampling of some of the essay titles I found interesting (I am reviewing this book; more on the actual content will be blogged later):
‘How we Talk about Christology Matters’ – A.D. DeConick
‘Mandatory Retirement: Ideas in the Study of Christian Origins Whose Time Has Come to God’ – P. Fredriksen
‘The “Most High” God and the Nature of Early Jewish Monotheism’ – Bauckham
‘”How on Earth Did Jesus Become a God?”: A Reply’ – A.Y. Collins
‘Resurrection and Christology: Are They Related?’ – Pheme Perkins
‘Pauline Exegesis and the Incarnate Christ’ – D.B. Capes
‘When Did the Understanding of Jesus’ Death as an Atoning Sacrifice First Emerge?’ – J.D.G. Dunn
‘Discarding the Seamless Robe: The High Priesthood of Jesus in John’s Gospel’ – H.K. Bond
‘Remembering and Revelation: The Historic and Glorified Jesus in the Gospel of John’ – Hurtado
‘Jesus: “The One Who Sees God”‘ – M.M. Thompson
‘Paul’s Religious Experience in the Eyes of Jewish Scholars’ – A.F. Segal
Wow! What a collection!
I have met Larry personally and he is a nice guy. He told me that he was on a committee that approved John Barclay’s move to Durham as Lightfoot Prof of Divinity – thanks Larry for bringing one of my supervisors to Durham!
