Lent begins today, 40 days till Easter (not including the Sundays). I have hardly been able to read anything other than my usual "skim quickly or die" reading relating to my obligations. I'm ready to post another installment on Allison's Constructing Jesus if I find a half hour of brain space to do it. But alas, it is time to go for the cross.
So my vain hope is to skip to Allison's chapter on the passion and Dunn's two chapters on the passion in Jesus Remembered. 40 days, about 140 pages--can he do it? ;-)
