Studies in the Life and Ministry of the Early Paul and Related Issues

This study interprets Paul on the basis of Paul's own statements, and only in an appendix considers material from Acts and shows how this does and does not conform to Paul's account of his early life and ministry through the Galatians 2:11-14 incident. In dialogue with Martin Sengel's Pre-Christian Paul, the study demonstrates that Paul grew up in Jerusalem, was trained as one of the strictest of the Pharisees, and only became the Hellenized person we meet in his letters during his 14-17 years in Syria and Cilicia after his call/encounter with Messiah Jesus.

Syntax Criticism of the Synoptic Gospels
1987 0-88946-610-6
The sequel to Martin's pioneering Syntactical Evidence of Semitic Sources in Greek Documents (Cambridge, Society Bib. Lit., 1974). In this study Martin applies his previously developed set of criteria for evidence of a Greek translation of a Semitic original to the Synoptic gospels, using as his methodology a calculus of the frequency of unusual syntactical formation.
