Biblical Theology Bulletin Articles

Here is the first batch of individual articles of interest from the on-line Biblical Theology Bulletin. The difficulty with FindArticles is that it doesn't have a browsing facility on a given journal, so one has to proceed by a series of searches. Anyway, these all courtesy of Gail Dawson's searches, for which many thanks:

"What kind of canon do the lectionaries constitute?"
March 22 2000 by Gerard S. Sloyan

" 'Thus faith comes from what is heard' (Romans 10:17): how much of the Bible do people hear?"
June 22 2002 by Gerard S. Sloyan

Plenty to feast on here! I'm particularly pleased to be able to access Elliott's piece on "Jesus was not an egalitarian". I'd recently read the second part of this on early Christianity, which was published in Biblical Interpretation, I think this year, and the first part in BTB has been on my reading list. It's a provocative critique of a current trend in Historical Jesus (and other NT) studies, especially Crossan & Schuessler Fiorenza but also others.
