Joseph B. Tyson
Joseph B. Tyson is professor emeritus of religious studies at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. He received his Ph.D. from Union Theological Seminary and taught at SMU for forty years. Tyson's many books include Luke, Judaism, and the Scholars; Images of Judaism in Luke–Acts; The Death of Jesus in Luke–Acts; and The New Testament and Early Christianity.
"Tyson draws on a wide range of recent scholarship into Luke-Acts to make his case and endeavors to present a deeply captivating and overall very convincing thesis why Luke-Acts should be seen as a literary response to Marcion and his gospel."—Daniel N Gullotta
"Marcion and Luke–Acts: A Defining Struggle is a breakthrough contribution concerning not only the composition and purpose of Luke-Acts but also Paul's legacy, Marcion's theology, and patristic hermeneutics. Joseph Tyson's study is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of the canon and the development of Christian orthodoxy. This volume is highly recommended for scholars and students alike."—Amy-Jill Levine, E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of New Testament Studies, Vanderbilt Divinity School and Graduate Department of Religion
