    Unfortunately the monograph is out of my league, financially.

    I did enjoy the little book, though.

    What’s your opinion on Brodie’s work on Elijah-Elisha? And his sources for John? Parallelomania, or is there something there?

    1. Whew… I like Brodie’s work, and generally agree with him on methodology. His work on birthing the new testament is likewise a needed introduction to the examination of courses, even if I disagree with his ultimate conclusion that everything comes from 1 Corinthians.

      To be quite honest, I am not sure about John yet.

      BTW, get Winn’s monograph on Elijah-Elisha.

        I haven’t read anything about 1 Corinthians yet. So far only The Crucial Bridge suggesting Elijah-Elisha reflect all the went before (and comes after) in the Pentateuch and the deuteronomistic history. Secondarily that a ‘proto-Luke’ can be discerned that similarly copies the structure of E-E pretty slavishly. Thirdly the Markan work.

        I’m iffy about the proto-Luke ideas. Not least since I find it hard to believe that something so thoroughly steeped in the Old Testament should have been amenable to Marcion.

        That’s the book I’ve read by Winn. I was referring to his Purpose as being too expensive.

        1. No, I understood about the monograph!

          That’s where I think Brodie simplifies too much. And no, I don’t buy into proto-Luke either.
