Dear Bob:

I think it certainly deserves to be updated. In English, I'm afraid, there
is nothing comparable, but there is another French monograph in the same

Daniel Vigne, _Christ au Jourdain. Le Baptême de Jésus dans la tradition
judéochrétienne [sic! I mean the spelling of the last word]_ Paris: Gabalda,
1992 (Études bibliques, n.s., no. 16). 362 pp.

Both Thomas and Vigne should be read together with each other.
Unfortunately, Vigne seems to disappear from the academic scene since the
early 90s. His former PhD supervisor, Fr Thomas Spidlík, told me that he is
a RC deacon.
