Sound Mapping the New Testament

In the Hellenistic world, writings were read aloud, heard and remembered. But
modern exegesis assumes a silent text. The disjuncture between ancient and modern approaches to literature, argue Margaret Lee and Brandon Scott, obscures the beauty and meaning in writings such as the New Testament. Through a close analysis of writings from the four gospels, Paul, and Q, they advance a theory of sound analysis that will enable modern readers to hear the New Testament afresh.

“A fundamental breakthrough for biblical studies. . . . It will revolutionize the way scholars analyze and interpret texts.”
—Arthur J. Dewey, Xavier University
