Call for papers for 2013: The John, Jesus, and History Seminar is planning three sessions for 2013, continuing the theme of "Jesus Remembered in the Johannine Tradition." One will focus on the multiple "portraits" of Jesus in the Fourth Gospel, including Jesus as rabbi, prophet, and apocalyptic Son of Man. A second session will be held jointly with the Synoptic Gospels Section and focus on common elements of tradition in Luke and John. Special attention will be given to the passages and themes most relevant for historical Jesus research. A third session will focus on "Jesus Remembered Within the Developing Johannine Tradition." Topics will range from the study of oral tradition to later written material. At least one paper will focus on Jesus remembered in the Johannine Epistles, building on the intratraditional features of the developing Johannine tradition.
