Biblical Scholars are NOT comedians

Reading through the content list of Jesus and the Restoration of Israel: A Critical Assessment of N.T. Wright's Jesus and the Victory of God ed. Carey C. Newman does make this abundantly clear. The puns on Wright and right; or trying to work something into "Jesus and the Victory of God" are just unbearable. Here are the best:
  • The Wright Stuff: A Critical Overview of Jesus and the Victory of God - Craig Blomberg
  • The (W)Right Jesus: Eschatological Prophet, Israel's Messiah, Yahweh Embodied - Paul R. Eddy
  • Jesus & the Victory of Apocalyptic - Dale C. Allison (what does that even mean?)
