E.P. Sanders and Tendencies of the Synoptic Tradition
A new reprint of Sanders' classic book has just been released and is available at
Amazon.com for those interested.
Coincidentally, today was the day when I again taught the Synoptic Problem to my first year students - this is always an interesting day. The relevance of the topic always comes up as does the question of why God would give us Scripture in this way! And once again, after setting my students to study the Synoptic accounts of the parable of the mustard seed, most of them thought that the Farrer-Goulder-Goodacre theory had the most mileage!
