March 2017 Biblical Studies Carnival

Jonathan Robinson has posted a five-part Biblical Studies Carnival. Here are the links:

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5.

Since he has made the theme one of “March Madness,” I will seize this opportunity to mention the “March Madness of Religion” which includes my friend and Butler colleague Brent Hege!

    I made the March Carnival too!: http://xenos-theology.blogspot.co.nz/2017/03/biblical-studies-carnival-mad-as-march_50.html

    Just scroll down to the post by Gordon MacNeil (a pseudonym – I’ve read too much Kierkegaard lol)

        Thanks. I don’t know why the topic of “The Noble Lie In The Judeo Christian Tradition” fascinates me so much. I have been intrigued by the ethics of the “Noble Lie” since I first encountered it in Plato’s “Republic.” I can almost see Cephas and The Twelve, devastated by the loss of their beloved Master Jesus, inventing stories of Jesus’ resurrection appearances in hopes of carrying on, and bringing divine authority to, Jesus’ wonderful ethical message of loving your neighbor and enemy. This is mere speculation, of course, but it certainly is fun to think about.

          Thank goodness for the edit feature! I called Jesus a “Mater” instead of a “Master.” The etymology is slightly different lol.

          This may have been an ethical cause the disciples were willing to die for, just as Socrates was willing to die for an ethical cause.
