Pointless Theological inference in 'Cons'
I refer to '6. Redaction Criticism has determined in advance what it will discover and therefore it is not a question of whether the writer will be found guilty but how and when he will be condemned. This stems from the redactionist's three main criteria, "distinctiveness," "multiple attestation," and "consistency," which presuppose that tradition about Jesus contains much that is un-historical.'
I created a lead by simply moving the first section to the top of the article. But I also shortenbed it, and, most importantly, changed it to stress that redaction criticism makes a distinction between "author" and "redactor". PiCo 09:44, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
added a bit about the prominent scholara
i added the bit about the school's key modern day contributors. feel free to edit - i'm no theologian on this topic so go ahead. but i'm reference was made from craig bloomberg's text, 'the historical reliability of the gospels'. --ToyotaPanasonic (talk) 14:15, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
It may be a good idea to be a bit clearer with the references:
- Bruce, 11-12
- Dunn, xxix-xli
If they are books, then do they already have articles in wikipedia? Ideally we'd have many of the following mentioned in the reference:
- full title
- author's full name
- date published
- relevant link
