SBL Aramaic Studies Sessions for San Francisco

Chris Brady posted on the finalization of the Aramaic Studies sessions for the Society of Biblical Literature conference in San Francisco in November. I am privileged to be reading what I assume will be the first instance of a paper related to the Mandaic dialect of Aramaic in that section. The title will be “The Satirical Use of Christian Material in the Mandaean Book of John.”

    Wish I was going to be there!  It’s probably a waste of time and certainly it’s been tried before in various ways, but I wish I had a year of my life to see if I could come up with a hypothetical Aramaic “Q core” that I could argue gave Matthew its name (a la Papias) yet coordinated with some section of Q in the order of Luke.
