June 15 – beginning the New Testament


Do ALL (but you don’t have to go into great detail on each response):

1. How is Luke using a type scene?

2. How are Matthew and Luke using the early life of Jesus (whether this is fictionalized or not) to imagine or reimagine the Jewish notion of the Messiah?

3. Make a quick list of how Luke and Matthew’s Nativity stories are different.

4. To the extent that Jewish apocalypticism swirls around the person of Jesus, how do you understand Crossan’s perspective on this as recounted in chapter 2, “The Jordan is not just water”?
