Bill!Awesome hanging out with you at SBL. I don't know about the label "conservative" and whether it applies to me, but I'd say most people would think me in that range. So, history of Yeshua's life is what I write about. And for me the key word in history is story (I don't mean by that fiction, but a storied epistemology since story is how we know everything).Derek Leman
It's the traditional resistance to producing reconstructions based on the gospel - what they fear would be a "fifth gospel". That's what bothers me, mainly. Largely, we just defend our own presuppositions, and then quit. That's not history. Now, sometimes we get a bit of speculative embellishment on pieces of the Gospels... but that's still not the same as historical reconstruction.(Un?)fortunately, I haven't read more than a page or two of your book yet, so I wasn't referring to you. :-)I meant the HJ folks, mainly.
