He is now Professor Emiritus of Jewish Studies and Emeritus Fellow of Wolfson College. He continues to lecture at the Oriental Institute, has taught at Oxford and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
This now classic book is a significant corrective to several recent developments in the study of the historical Jesus. In contrast to depictions of Jesus as a wandering Cynic teacher, Geza Vermes offers a portrait based on evidence of charismatic activity in first-century Galilee. Vermes shows how the major New Testament titles of Jesus-prophet, Lord, Messiah, son of man, Son of God-can be understood in this historical context. The result is a description of Jesus that retains its power and its credibility.
