History Today and the Christmas Story
I was meant to publicise this ages ago but got sidetracked. The December 2006 issue of the popular history magazine, History Today, has a cover feature called 'The First Christmas'. Geza Vermes gives a critical analysis of the birth and infancy narratives while I contextualise this in the history of critical scholarship on Christian Origins. Unless you go and buy it from your newsagents or whatever, you'll need subcription to get the whole lot online. I'm giving up even making sarcastic comments on self-publicity. Plenty do it, right?
