Esler, Philip F (2015) The World of Jesus and the Early Church: Identity and Interpretation in Early Communities of Faith. Journal of Theological Studies, 66 (1). pp. 359-362. ISSN 0022-5185Full text not available from this repository.
The genesis of this collection of essays lies in a series of scholarly meetings at Acadia Divinity College of Acadia University and Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. There is a strong focus in the essays on the light that realia, the remains of material culture, can throw on biblical and extra-biblical texts. This is an important arena for interaction, not only because of the research yields that can result (as we see clearly in these essays), but also because this approach has the capacity to grip the imagination of students and the wider public in ways that a text-only modus operandi may not.
