New Edition of Richard Bauckham’s Jesus and the Eyewitnesses

New Edition of Richard Bauckham’s Jesus and the Eyewitnesses June 10, 2017

There is a second edition of Richard Bauckham’s Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony (2nd ed.; Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans, 2017).

There’s a nice forward by Simon Gathercole noting the significance of Bauckham’s book when it came out in 2006.

The volume includes three new chapters on:

Eyewitnesses in Mark (Revisited) – Furthering the case for Petrine perspectives and women as eyewitnesses, esp. in light of studies of eyewitnesses in other biographies. Also, more on why the Gospels did not circulate as anonymous works. Was Mark really a popular name, well, not among Diaspora Jews. More on the personal names in the Gospels.

Who Was the Beloved Disciple? (Continued) – More on the case that John/Beloved Disciple was not John son of Zebedee, but a Judean disciple of Jesus.

The End of Form Criticism (Confirmed) – Bauckham offers a further eulogy for form criticism. In the end, Bauckham favours the type of criteria developed by Gerd Theissen and Dagmar Winter.

All in all, a welcomed update to a brilliant and ground-breaking volume, definitely supersedes the earlier version.

Eerdmans does a great podcast interview with Richard Bauckham about the book. If you go to the page there is also a code for a 30% discount.
