Hurtado on Learning from Fallacies

Larry Hurtado has a good word here on the importance of being self-critical and cautious about new proposals in biblical studies. As Hurtado sums up, "if such great scholars of the past could hold confidently ideas that we now know to be fallacies, today’s scholars need to learn from this."  This is especially worth hearing in a discipline that seems to be enamored with novelty.
