Couldn’t help but share David Rattigan’s “rejected exam paper,” which I learned about from Mark Goodacre’s NT Blog. Like Goodacre, I particular find #6 funny:

6. Briefly solve the synoptic problem (3-4 lines max). Explain why the problem still baffles scholars today, and suggest what should be done to them.

But #7 isn’t bad, either:

7. Examine and evaluate Schwinkelmeier’s exposition and assessment of Pfundhoffer’s representation and appraisal of Kasselheimer. Critique your answer.

Dry humor, yes, but read through the whole exam for a laugh or two.
