To which should be added, Evald Lovestamm, Jesus and "This Generation": A
New Testament Study" CB Almqvist & Wiksell, 1995. But (shameless plugg No.
1!!) see also my review of the recent Journal of Theological Studies, as
well as (shameless plug #2!!)my article on "Jesus' Refusal to Produce a
'Sign'', in Journal for the Study of the New Testament 38 (1990), pp.
37-66, and M. Meinertz, "Dieses Geschlecht im Neuen Testamen", BZ 1
(1957), pp. 283-289.
