This link is to a nice synopsis of Stephen Carlson's thesis concerning Luke's account of Jesus' birth. I think I might have been present at an SBL session where Carlson presented this paper. Or I might be making that up based on my vague memory of reading this essay a couple years ago. Does anyone know if Carlson presented this paper at an annual or regional SBL... an affirmation it would help me improve my memory.
Anyway, really interesting thesis.
