Some People Need to Learn to Distinguish Between the Words of Jesus and the Words of His Interpreters

09 Sep

Like Leithart who, without justification or reason, has read John’s rendition of the prayer of Jesus in Chapter 17 of his Gospel as a roadmap of Jesus himself for the future of his Church.

Some ‘theologians’ are genuinely awful at biblical scholarship and vice versa.  This is the primary failing of academic theology today: the severing of biblical and theological learning.

At any rate, one needn’t even read the volume to know Leithart is wrong, for two reasons:

  • It’s by Leithart.
  • It suggests a priori an unsubstantiated notion about the Historical Jesus that cannot be sustained by research.

So here’s something else I won’t be reading.
