Jesus and the oral Gospel tradition by Henry Wansbrough( Book )

18 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in English and Chinese and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of papers from two international symposia by such important scholars as Aune, Dunn, Gerhardsson, Meyer, Rordorf and Talmon. The articles share the conviction that the only way to break the deadlock in the Synoptic problem is to examine the oral tradition about Jesus which lay behind the Gospels, and to continue even beyond them. The book addresses such central issues as the characteristics of oral tradition: oral tradition in Judaism, in the teaching of Jesus (his aphorisms and the narrative meshalim) and in the Gospel narratives; and the relationships of John, Paul and the Didach

Theology in St. Paul by Henry Wansbrough( Book )

10 editions published between 1968 and 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul the Apostle was the greatest theologian of the Christian Church. His reflections and insights on the position of Christ in the universe, on the needs of man, on the consequences of the resurrection, on the Christian community, and on Christian conduct have been recognized by the Church down the ages as inspired by the Spirit of God, and as the basis of all Christian teaching. This book sets out to trace how Paul reached these insights. He was teaching and writing to the Chritian communities he had founded, scattered round the Mediterranean world, living amid the streses and strains of the times, affected by currents of thought, Jewish and pagan, which were then abroad. Paul strives to express the truth about Christ in these terms, using what he can of contemporary thought, opposing and correcting what he must. We see this great theologiaan at work, puzzling, advancing, persuading, inspiring his much-loved communities
