Item Description...
In June 2000 five scholars, one theologian and 60 non-academic pilgrims travelled to Israel to share their insights on the Jesus of history and the meaning of the historians' Jesus for Christian faith. The results are provided in this work. The text provides a summary of what is known about Jesus and his times - Galilee, his relationship to the Qumran community, his sense of mission as an eschatological prophet and miracle worker, and finally the mechanics of how the memories of Jesus's words and deeds circulated amongst his followers and were passed on in oral performance to be enshrined in the written synoptic tradition. The book concludes with reflections by Elizabeth Johnson on the relavance of such scholarship for contemporary Christian faith; rather than a challenge, she sees it as a gift.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Scholars, Excellent Discussion  Jun 14, 2002
This book provides an excellent overview of some of the most important current topics in Historical Jesus Study. They include:(1) a study of Galilee at the time of Jesus (by E. P. Sanders); (2) a comparison and analysis of Jesus's teachings with the doctrines contained in the Dead Sea Scrolls (by Daniel J. Harrington); (3) some preliminary musings by John P. Meier about how he will reconcile the Elijah-like miracle working prophet who has emerged to date from his "Marginal Jew" series with the early remembrance of Jesus as the Davidic Messiah; (4)an assement of the important role of oral traditions as sources for the Gospels (by James D. G. Dunn); and finally, a respected systematic theologian's perspective on the importance and usefulness of honest and objective historical Jesus research in terms of nurturing the Christian faith (by Elizabeth A. Johnson).

The contributors are all leading scholars who are excited about their subjects. They brilliantly employ the tools of honest, objective, historical criticism--but they also do not apologise for their faith. This short collection provides an excellent introduction to the work and thought processes of these wonderful scholars. I recommend it highly.
