the men of my dreams?

When I woke up this morning I realized that I had been dreaming that I was having a dialogue with Bart Ehrman about David Parker's discussion of the manuscript tradition of Jesus' teaching(s) on divorce (Matt 5.27–32; 19.3–9; Mark 10.2–12; Luke 16.18). I'm sure this says something about me, but for the life of me I just can't imagine what.

Just to add to the weirdness, one of Ehrman's children made a brief cameo appearance (not one of his actual children, I don't think). After Bart and I (we're on a first-name basis) finished, I ran into my Academic Dean.

Dreams don't get much more random than that.

For Parker's analysis, see, The Living Text of the Gospels (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1997), 75–94.

This is one of the funniest posts I have read in a long time. I just happen to be talking to another person about Ehrman on another blog, when I popped over to read a few items from my neglected RSS reader, and WHAM was hit by this one.

BTW... I have not yet started the PDF you sent me, I am sorry. I will get to it this week now that I am thinking of it. And... will give you some feed back.

BTW... say hi to "Bart" for me when you see him next.

Cheers! RichGriese@gmail.com
