Abstract

This concluding chapter relates the the work of Dodd to his predecessors and outstanding contemporaries to reveal his distinctive contribution to the recovery of the role of oral tradition in using the Gospels as sources for research in reconstructing what can be known of the historical Jesus. Though his early work focused on the oral tradition embodied inn the Synoptics, it prepared the way for his identification of similar tradition in the Fourth Gospel. Looking back it seems as if entire research career prepared the way for writing his book on the historical Jesus, The Founder of Christianity, first published in 1970.
