Goodacre on Sanders on "uniqueness"

ARTICLE NOTE from Mark Goodacre: The Question of Uniqueness in the Teaching of Jesus (E. P. Sanders).

"Uniqueness" is a seductive concept that has done a lot of damage to the study of antiquity, including but not limited to Historical Jesus studies. I have commented on in in another context here. I'm glad to see that Sanders has gone after it so effectively.
