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.
This is great!
Synoptic: it all came from “Q” that says everything we want it to say about the historical Jesus.
Wow, and all in one line.
