The Jesus Blog: The SBL Memory and Historical Jesus Session–Chris Keith

There are definitely times when living on the other side of the world to the US is a pain. I don’t actually want to live in the US, Canada is too cold and my Spanish is too poor to live in Mexico, but once again I am wishing that attending the Society of Biblical Literature Annual Meeting didn’t involve at least 24 hours in transit each way and at least $4,500 outlay. At least I get to read other people’s blogs about it. Chris Keith has recently posted a piece about The SBL Memory and Historical Jesus Session, which I would have loved to have attended. The post has a number of extended comments which raise some fascinating questions. Well worth the visit.

  1. Thanks for the link, Judy – Chris Keith’s blog shows that historical Jesus scholarship is very much alive, but w/old questions transformed by new perspectives (memory & social psychology). I guess there are many good qualities to life in Australia, such as the warmth of the climate and the cultural connection to Great Britain. Farewell.

    • Yes, Paul, there are many advantages to living in Australia. Our health system is one very obvious one. It’s just not a convenient place to visit the northern hemisphere from. 🙂
