(Matthew Novenson) Over at the Bible and Interpretation web site, CSCO director Helen Bond has an article entitled “Ten things I learnt about Jesus by writing a book about him,” in which she reflects on the process of writing her recent The Historical Jesus: A Guide for the Perplexed (T. & T. Clark, 2012). She touches on classic methodological concerns about the sayings, miracles, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, as well as some recent metacritical questions about feminism and politics in historical Jesus studies. The article is a very interesting window into the actual process of New Testament research.
