Dear Friends at B-Greek,

Today my question has to do with understanding the German word
"Sondergut." This term seems to be a technical term in literature dealing
with NT Studies, "Q" studies in particular. I looked up the word in my
Cassell's German-English dictionary and found dozens of entries to "Sonder"
and "Gut," but none to "Sondergut."

Peace and Love,

Near Eastern specialist and Egyptologist. . .are too aware of the
isolationism often seen in traditional classics--or more precisely in
studies of Greek civilization--with its emphasis on the events of a
relatively short period, primarily in a particular exemplar of a single
group of cultures. Studies that appear to see fifth-century B.C.E Athens as
the defining experience of all civilization puzzle those whose interest lie
in other areas of the Mediterranean antiquity, and still more those
concerned with other regions of the world.
