It is unfortunate that there is no appropriate forum to discuss these
matters in detail -- not B-GREEK [Biblical Greek grammar and vocabulary],
not TC-LIST [textual, lower, criticism], not Crosstalk [Historical Jesus],
not ELENCUS [patristics], and not Ioudaios-L [first century Hellenistic
Judaism] -- although from time to time the Synoptic Problem does become
relevant, as well as other questions higher criticism deals with: e.g.,
authorship, dating, pseudepigraphy, source criticism, form criticism,
and redaction criticism. Do we need a list for higher criticism?
