The Historical Metzger

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.
