Rafael Rodriguez on the Criterion of Embarrassment--Chris Keith

In an earlier post, Greg Monette defended the usage of the criterion of embarrassment in historical Jesus studies.  Rafael Rodgriguez has now responded here.  Both posts are worth reading, as is Rafael's contribution to Jesus, Criteria, and the Demise of Authenticity, which Anthony Le Donne and I edited.  Elsewhere, Christopher Skinner shares some further thoughts on this book and the very entrenched ideas about the criteria of authenticity that it challenges.

  1. If it is not by the criterion of embarrassment that we are so certain John baptized Jesus, then by what is it? Or are we not certain about this anymore?
