About this blog

This blog seeks to explore the historical Jesus, the canonical and extracanonical gospels, narrative hermeneutics, and the implications these areas of study have for modern followers of Jesus Christ. The name “Peje Iesous” is an English transliteration of the Coptic phrase “Jesus said,” the introductory formula for most sayings in the Gospel of Thomas. After reading so many biblical studies blogs with Greek, Hebrew, Latin, and German titles, I felt the need to include an entry from the vastly underrepresented category of Coptic.

    Hi Chris,

    I finally found my way here and would like to subscribe to your blog! I look forward to eavesdropping in on continuing Thomas discussions as I learn more about the gospel.

    Regards,

    Hi Chris,

    Although we do not know each other, I am a member of the GhT yahoo Grp/ Michael G., who referred me here and I am wondering how or if it is possible to sign up on this block to receive your messages and what not? Your book here looks interesting I will have to check it out and see if it is available from our Public Library or University Library/inter-library loan program as well as Amazon. Thanks all the best, Thomas

    Dear Dr. Skinner,

    I am a doctoral student from KU Leuven (Belgium) with research interests in kosmos and cosmology in the Gospel of John. I find your blog on the Roman backdrop of John (contra Thatcher, Carter, and Richey) quite interesting. May I ask if this position of yours is available in any publication which I can refer to?

    Thank you very much.

      Joan, this research will be coming out as a chapter in a book that will be published in April 2013. The book is entitled, Jesus is Lord, Caesar is Not, and is edited by Scot McKnight and Joseph Modica. There’s a link to this book on my home page under the label, “Book’s I’ve Contributed To.” Thanks for your interest and best of luck in your ongoing doctoral research.
