Abstract [en]

This article reflects on the methodologies employed in the author’s monograph on John the Baptist’s “locusts and wild honey” with an eye to six larger issues of interest to New Testament and early Christian studies in interdisciplinary perspective.  These issues concern the ongoing need for philological refinement; moving beyond “parallelomania” to cogent argumentation and elucidation; the use of sociological data from recent and contemporary, pre-industrialized peoples; John the Baptist (and other biblical characters) in patristic interpretation; biblical literature construed as a source of paideia in the early church; conceptions of food as a basis of construing ethnic and religious identity in antiquity and the early church.
