What is your assessment of the four recommended reading lists for NT graduate students? Any additions or subtractions?

Charles Savelle said...

Good question. Here are four on the lists that I would strongly agree with.

Nestle-Aland, Novum Testamentum Graece, 27th ed.
E. P. Sanders, Paul and Palestinian Judaism
Stephen Neil and N.T. Wright, The Interpretation of the New Testament, 1861–1986
Bruce Metzger, The Text of the New Testament

To this I would offer the following suggestions.
G. E. Ladd, A Theology of the New Testament
The IVP Dictionaries (e.g., Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels, etc.)
Dan Wallace, Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics
Craig Evans, Ancient Texts for New Testament Studies
