The dynamics of interpretation, including the role played by history, methodology, religion, and politics, are taken into consideration, shedding light on distinctive aspects of the human endeavor to understand and use sacred text in context. The present book is the second in a larger project dedicated to comparative analysis of the earliest Gospels, the previous volume focusing on the first century (WUNT 271, 2011).
