JSNT - June 2013 and Promotion

It looks like the new issue of the Journal for the Study of the New Testament is out and it seems like a pretty good issue. Here's the line-up:

Mark Goodacre, "How Reliable is the Story of the Nag Hammadi Discovery?"

Anna C. Miller, "Not with Eloquent Wisdom: Democratic Ekklēsia Discourse in 1 Corinthians 1-4"

Jonathan Knight, "The Political Issue of the Ascension of Isaiah: A Response to Enrico Norelli"

Robert A. Derrenbacker, Jr., "Texts, Tables and Tablets: A Response to John C. Poirier"

F. Gerald Downing, "Waxing Careless: Poirier, Derrenbacker and Downing"

Simon Gathercole, "Jerusalem and Caesarea Inscriptions and New Testament Study: A Review Article"

I'm glad to see Mark Goodacre frontlining this issue, as this article was something we discussed with Mark in his class. I took a history of interpretation course this semester and when we were discussing the Nag Hammadi documents, I was thinking about some of the things Mark told us about concerning the discovery of the Nag Hammadi library. It looks to be a very interesting study into how the story came to be told and retold, so go ahead and check it out.

Oh, and Mark Goodacre has just been promoted to full professor at my alma mater, Duke University, so that is great news indeed (it's about time!). You can check out his blog here.
