The Gospels and Jesus by Graham Stanton( )

48 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in English and Japanese and held by 3,860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jesus and Gospel by Graham Stanton( )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Gospel' initially referred to oral proclamation concerning Jesus Christ, but was later used to refer to four written accounts of the life of Jesus. How did this happen? Here, distinguished scholar Graham Stanton uses new evidence and fresh perspectives to tackle this controversial question. He insists that in the early post-Easter period, the Gospel of Jesus Christ was heard against the backdrop of a rival set of 'gospels' concerning the Roman emperors. In later chapters Stanton examines the earliest criticisms of Jesus and of claims concerning his resurrection. Finally, he discusses the early Christian addiction to the codex (book) format as opposed to the ubiquitous roll, and undermines the view that early copies of the Gospels were viewed as downmarket handbooks of an inward-looking sect
A critical and exegetical commentary on John 1-4 by John McHugh( )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over one hundred years the International Critical Commentary has had a special place amongst works on the Bible. This new volume on John brings together all the relevant aids to exegesis - linguistic, textual, archaeological, historical, literary and theological - to enable the scholar to have a complete knowledge and understanding of this New Testament book. McHugh incorporates new evidence available in the field and applies new methods of studies. No uniform theological or critical approach to the text is taken."
A dictionary of the Bible by W. R. F Browning( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new work is an authoritative and accessible guide to the books of the Christian Bible. As well as providing helpful information about important places and personalities, the dictionary is particularly concerned to expound the themes and doctrines of the Bible and to indicate their status in the light of modern scholarship." "The book is ideal for students of the Bible, whether at school, college, or in church or community study groups, or those who simply wish to improve their biblical knowledge. With over 2,000 entries, from Adam to Zechariah, it ranges from the earliest period to the beginning of the second century CE/AD. The entries cover the books of the Bible, people and places, customs, religions and worship, history, and theology. There are clear explanations of technical terms, methods of interpretation and critical analysis, as well as notes on leading biblical scholars and their contributions. In addition to maps, the appendices include tables of weights and measures and important dates in biblical history." "Full references are provided to the text of the Bible and W.R.F. Browning gives alternative views on current disputed and controversial issues, taking into account the work of both Christian scholars of all denominations and Jewish scholars. The wide scope of the dictionary allows entries from earthquakes and mice to allegory and the Dead Sea Scrolls, making this a lively and absorbing reference work for all readers of the Bible."--Jacket
The Interpretation of Matthew by Graham Stanton( Book )

21 editions published between 1983 and 1995 in English and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gospel truth? : new light on Jesus and the Gospels by Graham Stanton( Book )

16 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 24 December 1994 The Times of London reported the claim by the German scholar Carsten Thiede that the three papyrus fragments of Matthew's Gospel held in Oxford since 1901 date from the first century, a hundred years earlier than previously thought. Graham Stanton, one of Britain's most eminent New Testament scholars and a leading specialist on Matthew's Gospel, was among the first to call the new findings into question. Now his fascinating new book offers a readable
Jesus of Nazareth in New Testament preaching by Graham Stanton( Book )

21 editions published between 1974 and 2004 in English and German and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book argues that an account of the life and character of Jesus formed an integral part of the early church's preaching. Against many modern scholars, Dr Stanton seeks to show that interest in the life of Jesus was not a late development within primitive Christianity. A study of Luke's Gospel indicates that in his own day reference to the life and character of Jesus was an important part of missionary preaching. In this respect at least, Luke was no innovator. The references in the speeches in Acts to the life of Jesus can be traced to Luke's use of earlier traditions. Dr Stanton then takes up the much-debated question of Paul's interest in Jesus of Nazareth. The author challenges several widely-accepted views from critical conclusions about the nature and purpose of the traditions on which the evangelists drew
Tolerance and intolerance in early Judaism and Christianity( Book )

23 editions published between 1977 and 2008 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this book consider issues of tolerance and intolerance faced by Jews and Christians between approximately 200 BCE and 200 CE. Several chapters are concerned with many different aspects of early Jewish-Christian relationships. Five scholars, however, take a difference tack and discuss how Jews and Christians defined themselves against the pagan world. As minority groups, both Jews and Christians had to work out ways of co-existing with their Graeco-Roman neighbours. Relationships with those neighbours were often strained, but even within both Jewish and Christian circles, issues of tolerance and intolerance surfaced regularly. So it is appropriate that some other contributors should consider 'inner-Jewish' relationships, and that some should be concerned with Christian sects
A Gospel for a new people : studies in Matthew by Graham Stanton( Book )

15 editions published between 1990 and 1993 in English and French and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This major new book discusses the appropriate methods for the interpretation of Matthew's gospel and considers in detail its origin, purpose, and social setting." "Professor Stanton claims that Matthew wrote following a period of prolonged bitter disputes with fellow Jews. With considerable literary, catechetical and pastoral skill the evangelist composed a gospel for a new people: fellow-Christians (both Jews and Gentiles) in a cluster of Christian communities who were defining themselves over against local synagogues." "In Part I Professor Stanton discusses redaction critical, literary critical, and social scientific approaches to the interpretation of Matthew. He shows that sociological models help to clarify Matthew's purposes and the circumstances of the Christian communities for whom he wrote." "Part II confirms from a number of angles the extent to which Matthew's gospel has been shaped by the 'parting of the ways' with Judaism. Part III includes two essays on the Sermon on the Mount, and one on Matthew's use of the Old Testament."--Jacket
The Holy Spirit and Christian origins : essays in honor of James D.G. Dunn( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Holy Spirit and Christian Origins comprises a selection of original essays that explore a topic that has held a prominent and distinctive place in the majority of Professor Dunn's publications. Written by twenty-seven leading scholars, this singular volume probes deep into the nascent Christian communities and their writings and investigates the early Christians' convictions concerning the Holy Spirit. Ranging widely through Scripture and across early church history, many of these essays introduce groundbreaking research in biblical studies, and some engage directly with Dunn's work in the field."--Jacket

They look at how the Bible and theology have come together in the past - in Judaism, the early Church, the Middle Ages, early modernity, and the 20th century. How is current biblical scholarship to be related to past insights and modern methods? Contributors debate how wisdom is to be related to faith and to reason
