Item Description...
Overview
This book by Paul Barnett is a calculated reaction against the popular dichotomy between the Jesus of history and the Christ of faith. In Finding the Historical Christ Barnett seeks to establish that the two figures are, in fact, one and the same. The culmination of Barnett's After Jesus trilogy, Finding the Historical Christ carefully examines the ancient sources pertaining to Jesus, including writings by historians hostile to the Christian movement, the summarized "biographies" of Jesus in the book of Acts, and especially the four canonical Gospels. Based on compelling historical evidence, Barnett maintains that Jesus of Nazareth regarded himself as the prophesied Christ, as did his disciples before Jesus died and rose again. He explains this is the only way to explain the phenomenon of the early church worshiping Jesus.

Publishers Description
Paul Barnett's title Finding the Historical Christ is a calculated jab against the popular dichotomy between the Jesus of history and the Christ of faith. In this book Barnett seeks to establish that the two figures are, in fact, one and the same. / The culmination of Barnett's After Jesus trilogy, Finding the Historical Christ carefully examines the ancient sources pertaining to Jesus, including writings by historians hostile to the Christian movement (Josephus, Tacitus, Pliny), the summarized "biographies" of Jesus in the book of Acts, and especially the four canonical Gospels. Based on compelling historical evidence, Barnett maintains that Jesus of Nazareth regarded himself as the prophesied Christ, as did his disciples before Jesus died and rose again. This is the only way to explain the phenomenon of the early church worshiping Jesus. / "There is currently something of a revival of confidence in the historical value of the Gospels. Paul Barnett's work, notable for its sober use of historical method and its many fresh observations and proposals, is an excellent contribution to that development." -- Richard Bauckham / University of St. Andrews / "Over his illustrious career, Paul Barnett has returned repeatedly to questions about the historical Jesus, the historicity of the Gospels, and the history of earliest Christianity. Drawing together scattered strands of all of that work, elaborating them further, and adding still new ones, Barnett here mounts what may be his most impressive case yet for the accuracy of the canonical material and the messiahship of Jesus of Nazareth on historical grounds alone." -- Craig L. Blomberg / Denver Seminary

Reviews - What do our customers think?
More First-rate Early Christian History from Barnett  Jun 12, 2009
This third volume in Barnett's trilogy on early Christian history is well researched, well argued, and meticulously written.He argues that we do in fact have a historical Christ, based on genuine memories and traditions in the gospels, the Acts and the letters (all of which incorporate memories/traditions or even earlier records that are very early indeed), plus other evidence in non-Christian historians and the early church fathers. Some of the latter were taught by those who had personally known the Apostles (and Polycarp was indeed taught by John).

Barnett has been both a professor of ancient history at Macquarie University and an Anglican bishop, so he writes both from a perspective of academic rigour and a perspective of faith.

Buy it and read it - and also the two earlier volumes, The Birth of Christianity - the First Twenty Years and Paul - Missionary of Jesus.
