Reviews - What do our customers think?
Collection of Published Articles  May 13, 2008
Although top notch and readable scholarship, this volume is a collection of previously published articles or individually written essays. That's fine, but it's title and subtitle would never lead you to realize that. The title "From Jesus to the Gospels," suggests, to me at least, an in-depth look at the process of how the Gospels developed from the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Even Koester writes in the preface, "The title ... may be misleading." It's not the comprehensive discussion it was marketed as.

The articles stand more as individual studies in their own right than as parts of a generalized picture of Jesus. For example, the first chapter, on the apocrypha, was very informative. It seems that some of the NT (New Testament) apocrypha are considered as early (i.e. closer to Jesus) as some of the material in the canonical Gospels. Learning this for me was worth the price of the book, and each chapter offers insights. But articles, by their very nature, usually have an extremely narrow focus, and that narrow focus is going to surprise many readers who pick up this text.

Chapters in part three deal with Jesus: historical Jesus, Q, etc.

Koestler is a great NT scholar. His prior two-volume work may be a better "intro" to the NT than this.

Although good scholarship, only three stars were given because of the misleading marketing. However, if you are a scholar, member of the clergy, historian, or a non-specialist generally knowledgeable about NT scholarship, this is a great collection of essays.
