In Memory and Manuscript (1961), Gerhardsson explores the way in which Jewish rabbis during the first Christian centuries preserved and passed on their sacred tradition, and he shows how early Christianity is better understood in light of how that tradition developed in Rabbinic Judaism. In Tradition and Transmission in Early Christianity (1964), Gerhardsson further clarifies the discussion and answers criticism of his earlier book. This Biblical Resource Series combined edition corrects and expands Gerhardsson's original works and includes a new preface by the author and a new foreword by Jacob Neusner that summarizes these works' importance and subsequent influence. --from publisher description

The mighty acts of Jesus according to Matthew by Birger Gerhardsson( Book )

12 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in English and Swedish and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As is apparent from the title of this book, I am not writing about all the miracles in the Gospel of Matthew but only about the mighty acts which Jesus is said to perform (and which his followers perform in his name). I do not take up the miracles which happen to him (the virgin birth, the resurrection, the epiphanies of the baptism and transfiguration, and the like).--From the Introduction
The reliability of the Gospel tradition by Birger Gerhardsson( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Reliability of the Gospel Tradition presents three studies that illuminate how the early Christians passed on tradition. "The Origins of the Gospel Tradition" gives an accessible review of the debate regarding the extent to which the New Testament evangelists enable us to hear the voice of Jesus. "The Path of the Gospel Tradition" contains a critical discussion of the approach of the form-critical school to the problem of the early Christian tradition, ending with an alternative sketch of the path of the tradition. "The Gospel Tradition" offers a detailed picture of various aspects of the content and method of early Christian tradition and assesses the reliability of the four oldest of the extant written records. --from publisher description
