This is mostly for other wannabe theologians, but if you’ve read anything about the “search for the historical Jesus,” it might be of interest to you too. Dan Wallace has a story today about an urban legend that circulated for years about Bruce Metzger, a very famous scholar.* Wallace relates the story to the claims that we need to look behind the Gospel accounts to find the “historical” or “real” Jesus. It’s a quick read.
* “Very famous scholar,” of course, being a relative term.
