    Was hoping to hear Don Rickles explain the Synoptic problem for a moment there.

    Nice! Easy to understand, this is how sunday school should be taught!

    In the spirit of this blessed Advent Season, I post my Gospel-oriented Christmas wish list for Dr. Heiser!
    I only want two small/easy presents:
    1. That you would give your own assessment of the Jesus-lineage genealogy problem [Luke vs. Matthew]
    2. That you would at some point address the question of whether any of the Gospels were originally scripted in Hebrew or Aramaic, and why that matters.

    Please Please!

    Has nr 1 been adressed Mike?
    “1. That you would give your own assessment of the Jesus-lineage genealogy problem [Luke vs. Matthew]”

    We are basically asking for a post on the Jesus-lineage genealogy inconsistencies between Luke and Matthew when you have the time.
    A link to a trustworthy explanation will suffice.

      Do you have access to scholarly commentaries or journal databases? Do you read Greek?

      I ask because there’s a lot on this. Since it is well known that the genealogies are artificial (i.e., they are deliberately selective), a variety of approaches as to the agenda (his communication goal) of each gospel writer have been proposed.
