Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the book The Language Environment of First Century Judaea: Jerusalem Studies in the Synoptic Gospels-volume Two, which demonstrates that a change is taking place in New Testament studies. The book investigates various areas where increasing linguistic data and changing perspectives impact New Testament studies. In some cases, prevalent assumptions on language use within the field of New Testament studies are challenged and found wanting. The book looks at the history of New Testament studies and explores why, at the end of the 19th century, scholars assumed a two-language paradigm: Guido Baltes, "The Origins of the 'Exclusive Aramaic Model' in the Nineteenth Century: Methodological Fallacies and Subtle Motives". It focuses on the synoptic criticism, which benefits from detailed linguistic appraisals of the Synoptic Gospels.
