B 99 Reconstructing Characters in the Gospels (2021)


Our descriptions of characters in the gospel narratives can sometimes be formed by single episodes, rather than taking account of all the information that the gospels provide.

This fascinating study offers a framework for reconstructing characters, both within a gospel and across the different narratives—and shows how careful attention to the text gives these characters so much more life and colour.
