Tonight Matthew I'm going to be...Rafael Rodriguez
Well on Monday morning anyway. Rafael has had to pull out of SBL (baby and all that) so it's being Rafael Rodriguez for me. I'll be reading out his paper, 'Discoursing Miracles: Jesus' Healings in Early Christian Memory', to the social sciences group (can't remember the precise name off the top of my head) on Monday morning. From what I can see in front of me it looks a great paper, what with arguments for an early date for Mark, a law observant Jesus, arguments against the resurrection, and the greatness of two of the best Man United players, Eric Cantona (man more than capable of producing miracles in his time) and Roy Keane. Probably.
The title of this post for the unsophisticated is an allusion to Shakesp... Stars in their Eyes, a fourth rate TV show which should never be watched.
