Jonathan Robinson has some as yet unbaked1 thoughts on the hidden presence of children in gospel narratives.
As someone who still remembers being a child (it always surprises me how many people seem to turn off those memories, or at least fail to use them to generate empathy) I like the way he’s thinking. It seems to me he opens up a whole new discipline of biblical criticism. We’ve had Feminist, Womanist, Black, African, Asian… Criticism, how about some serious Child Criticism?
Now, it may be that someone has already published on this, if they have please give me details!
- He calls them half-baked, but I think that’s unduly rude [↩]
