Richard Bauckham's assessment of Simcha Jacobovici and Barrie Wilson, The Lost Gospel: Decoding the Ancient Text that Reveals Jesus' Marriage to Mary Magdalene (New York: Pegasus, 2014) is now complete.
I have been posting his responses over the last two weeks, and I am happy now to gather links to all seven parts here. In each case, the main link is to a PDF of the article. Word versions are linked in square brackets:
Part 1: The Chronicle of Pseudo-Zachariah Rhetor – Content and Context [PDF] [Word]
Part 2: Misinterpreting Ephrem [PDF] [Word]
Part 3: Misreading Joseph and Aseneth (i) [PDF] [Word]
Part 4: Responding to Simcha's Responses [PDF] [Word]
Part 5: Misreading Joseph and Aseneth (ii) [PDF] [Word]
Part 6: On Mary Magdalene and Magdala [PDF] [Word]
Part 7: Conclusion and Pauline Postscript [PDF] [Word]
Many thanks to Prof. Bauckham for this fine, detailed critical analysis.
