In Being either, Miller attracts on unique surveys and interviews with mom and dad, scholars, lecturers, and clergy, in addition to on her personal trip, to chronicle this debatable grassroots movement.
virtually a 3rd of all married americans have a wife from one other faith, and there are actually extra little ones in Christian-Jewish interfaith households than in households with Jewish mom and dad. around the state, lots of those households are difficult the conventional concept that they need to pick out one faith.

I am pleased that we are moving in the direction of regarding John 6 as an integral part of the Gospel in its present location. Labahn and I agree that The topic of “John and the Synoptics” should be rephrased as “John within the early Gospel traditions” and thus should include Paul’s use of Gospel material. Labahn finds this to be a wellgrounded argument. Labahn states that one should differentiate between at least three points: First, did the author of the Fourth Gospel have knowledge of (an)other written Gospels?
51a and the opening verses in vv. 31–33. In this way Richter followed those who saw vv. 51bff. as an added interpolation about the eucharist. My answer to Richter is that in all these passages the closing statement comes when the Old Testament repetition itself ends. The repetition of words from the Old Testament quotation in John 6:31 runs beyond v. 51a and ends with v. 58. In Borgen 1983c, 32–38 with end notes, I have dealt more fully with Richter’s points. Textual Structures In recent years, we have seen an increasing interest in structural studies.
I do not believe that those who hold this view mean that the Gospel tradition had no stability at the oral stage. Thus, one has to think in terms of various degrees of stability and some variations in the transmission process. A double motive was at work: the need and aim to preserve oral traditions in a recognizable continuity and the need to interpret and apply them. It should be noted that the preserved eucharistic traditions themselves testify to a variety. As seen above, fragments are built into expository contexts.
