Is Social Memory Theory a Fad in Jesus Studies? My Interview with Dominic Mattos—Chris Keith
Over the weekend, The T&T Clark Blog put up a podcast where Dominic Mattos, editor of Bloomsbury T&T Clark interviewed me (over a year ago now) about the current state of Jesus studies, including criteria of authenticity and the contributions of social memory theory. Among several things he asks is whether I think social memory theory is a fad in Jesus studies. I'll let you listen there instead of offering my full answer here, which might not be exactly what some readers of this blog would think. Perhaps we can come back to it later on the Jesus Blog, though.
