Mark Goodacre has noted the Sept edition of Expository Times. Given that I've got something in it on the historical Jesus' attitude to rich people of his time I thought I should exploit the free plug of this blog. The other NT article is by David G. Horrell, 'Familiar Friend or Alien Stranger? On Translating the Bible'. Both our articles were coincidentally products of the Exeter NT group run by David Horrell in the Dept of Theology. David's article really must be read by anyone interested in ways in which the Bible can be translated with lots of important stuff on inclusive language and cultural differences. And it includes swear words.
