4 Reviews
Comprehensively detailing the sources for our knowledge of Jesus, Theissen and Merz fully explore the historical and social context of Jesus and his activity. They then unfold what we can know about Jesus' characteristics as a charismatic teacher, a Jewish prophet, a healer, a teller of parables and an ethical teacher. Finally, they examine closely the historical question surrounding Jesus' last supper, his violent death, the accounts of Easter, and the beginnings of Christology.

Review: Historical Jesus: A Comprehensive Guide

User Review  - Greg - Goodreads

A pretty good summary of scholarship into the historical Jesus and the various views on the evidence. At times, it feels like Christian apologetics and often the bending of logic they engage in is frequently embarassing for what is supposed to be a critical look at the evidence Read full review
