The Gospel as Manuscript

An Early History of the Jesus Tradition as Material Artifact

Chris Keith

  • Proposes that most authors of Gospels in early Christianity saw themselves in competition with prior evangelists
  • Presents a new, material history of the Jesus tradition that challenges any notion of political neutrality toward predecessors on the part of the Gospel writers
  • Challenges an over-emphasis on orality by demonstrating that the written nature of the Jesus tradition was also dynamic
