Text of
the GospeL·
represents an important newdeparture in Gospel studies and textual criticism. DavidParker offers a way of reading the Gospels which treatsseriously the fact that they first existed as manuscripts.Through an analysis of the different forms of a number of keypassages, he demonstrates that the Gospels cannot be proper-ly understood as texts without taking into consideration theirphysical existence as manuscripts, printed books and elec-tronic text. In conclusion, he argues that the search for anoriginal text of the Gospels overlooks the way in which theearly church passed down its traditions.It is an approach that challenges many of the assumptionsof New Testament scholarship. But, at the same time, it doesnot assume any prior knowledge of the discipline, and cantherefore be used as a unique alternative to traditionalprimers of New Testament textual criticism.
