Jesus and His Siblings

Although my “Sibling Rivalries” course is primarily concerned with the occurrences of this phenomenon in the Hebrew Bible, I always have to be unique (read: difficult)… and so my term paper will analyze narrative and exegetical perspectives on the relationship between Jesus of Nazareth and his siblings. An abstract and an initial bibliography are available here. If anyone has any brilliant insights or additions, send them my way. If anyone doesn’t like this topic, keep it to yourself. 😉

And, providentially, Tony Chartrand-Burke has just posted his own missive on the family of Jesus, which he is currently covering in his “New Testament Apocrypha” course. Check it out.

Sean Freyne’s Coming to Town!

If you’re anywhere near New Haven on Friday afternoon, be sure not to miss this:

Sean Freyne
Emeritus Professor of Theology at Trinity College, Dublin and Visiting Professor of New Testament at Harvard Divinity School
“Josephan Perspectives on the Galilean Social World: Some Reconsiderations”
Friday, October 19, Yale Divinity School
The lecture, free and open to the public, will begin at 12.15 p.m. in Latourette Hall.

Freyne has conducted significant research on the Synoptic Gospels, most recently in the context of ancient biography and its social roles. He has contributed numerous articles and papers on the current ‘third wave’ of historical Jesus studies. Freyne’s publication Jesus: A Jewish Galilean (2004) gathers together many of his ideas on both Jesus and Galilee developed over the years.

See you on Friday!
