Chapter Summary

The reference to Solomon's "covenant/testament" in which the king sacrifices (so Timothy) or crushes (so Aquila) locusts is probably the most obvious and amusing - and it is presented as being well known to both discussants. The sixth session of the 1970-71 Phildelphia Seminar on Christian Origins was convened by co-chairman Sheldon Isenberg. After customary introductions and announcements, the Seminar continued a discussion begun at the January 26 meeting on the Dialogue of Timothy and Aquila, led by participants in the University of Pennsylvania advanced seminar on Christian Origins, Robert Kraft, Betsy Purintun, and Donald Nilsson. The Dialogue of Timothy and Aquila is a rich mine of materials that merits further close examination, especially in the context of early Christian prooftexting and reported dialogues with Jews.
