  1. Having read the original E. P. Sanders work (1977), then on to both Dunn and Wright, I have had become influenced somewhat. But like all new ideas it takes time to let them shake down a bit. Now I am not that convinced myself about all of the presuppositions of the Second Temple, and the Torah material. Too many suppositions to be taken down whole! Plus Wright’s view that there is nothing for National Israel, seems to go beyond many OT texts for me at least. But, it is the “new perspective” that is for certain. Each theolog must read and make up his own mind, etc.

  2. PS..On a secondary note, I would be interested in what some American theolog’s think of Dunn’s remark about the now American political Imperialism? How does this affect anything with the subject? And I am Irish.
