A Good Survey  May 13, 2008
Who On Earth Was Jesus?: The Modern Quest for the Jesus of History

David Boulton has written a fair and balanced survey of the historical Jesus books published over the past forty years or so, a very productive period for this topic. Although he favors the nonapocalyptic Jesus of the Jesus Seminar, he is clear when he expresses such opinion. He rejects the apocalyptic Jesus as not congenial to the modern mind. Unfortunately congeniality is not a criteria of historical truth.

He does a good job of showing that the key distinction between scholars is whether Jesus was or was not an apocalypticist. He points out that those who favor the nonapocalyptic position treat Q and the Coptic Gospel of Thomas as more reliable than do those who favor the apocalyptic position.

As one who finds the apocalyptic position compelling, I would have liked to see coverage of the following books:

Bart D. Ehrman: Jesus the Apocalyptic Prophet of the New Millennium (1999)

Dale C. Allison: Jesus of Nazareth, Millenarian Prophet (1998)

Amy-Jill Levine: The Misunderstood Jew (2006)

Paula Fredriksen: Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews (1999)
