Kyle Hughes, a Dallas Theological Seminary student and soon-to-be PhD student at the University of Virginia, kindly sent me an early copy of his forthcoming Novum Testamentum article “The Lukan Special Material and the Tradition History of the Pericope Adulterae.” Kyle argues from Lukanisms in the Pericope Adulterae that an early version of the text was in “L,” the source Luke allegedly used alongside Q and Mark. In so doing, he adds further argumentation to a view associated at various times with Henry Cadbury, Bart Ehrman, and Josep Rius-Camps. Hughes takes a couple shots at some of my publications on the Pericope Adulterae, specifically the fact that I don’t think arguments based on linguistic style are ultimately persuasive. He hasn’t changed my mind there. At the end of the article he agrees with my argument about the Pericope Adulterae’s insertion into John’s Gospel, so it all balances out! All in all, this is an impressive contribution for a piece of work that I suspect was originally a ThM paper! Dan Wallace is clearly investing heavily in his students, and he has bright ones in which to invest. Congrats to Kyle.
