Last April, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary hosted a conference on the Pericope Adulterae. Conference participants discussed whether or not the passage of the woman caught in adultery was original to John’s Gospel or if it was a later interpolation.
I’m pleased to announce that the essays from the conference will be published by Bloomsbury’s Library of New Testament Studies!
The book will be titled The Pericope of the Adulteress in Modern Research and will be co-edited by David Alan Black and Jacob N. Cerone (!). The contents of the volume with their tentative titles are below:
Foreword: Gail O’Day
Preface: David Alan Black
Introduction: Jacob N. Cerone
Chapter 1: John David Punch – “The Piously Offensive Pericope Adulterae”
Chapter 2: Jennifer Knust – ” ‘Taking Away From’: Patristic Evidence and the Omission of the Pericope Adulterae from John’s Gospel”
Chapter 3: Tommy Wasserman – “The Strange Case of the Missing Adulteress”
Chapter 4: Chris Keith – “The Pericope Adulterae: A Theory of Attentive Insertion”
Chapter 5: Maurice Robinson – “The Pericope Adulterae: A Johannine Tapestry with Double Interlock”
Chapter 6: Larry Hurtado – “The Pericope Adulterae: Where from Here?
Make sure to keep an eye out for its release. I’ll be sure to keep you updated as it gets closer to publication.
Congrats on being co-editor w/D.A. Black! I’m hopeful this will be available in paperback, as I won’t be able to afford the hardback, assuming pricing as per the rest in this series.
