Regarding the John the Baptist narratives--

We (a Baylor Ph.D. seminar) are currently working through John P. Meier's *A
Marginal Jew* volume 2. Meier devotes 230 pages (80+ pages of endnotes) to
John the Baptist. He gives a fairly exhaustive discussion of these passages,
from a moderately conservative (that is: more "conservative" than Crossan, not
as "conservative" as F. F. Bruce or D. A. Carson) Catholic perspective. He may
not pay as much attention as others to the theological implications of Marcan
or Matthaean priority, however.
