By A Customer
This work is a truly eye-opening study, looking at the First-Century religious context in Palestine as key to understanding the historical Jesus. Evans includes much analysis of the Dead Sea Scrolls, especially the newly-published materials, and considers vital Rabbinical traditions. Though it's a very scholarly work by a world expert in the area, the text is surprisingly accessible, and the intelligent non-expert will benefit from it greatly. If you're presently persuaded by Jesus Seminar scholars and the like, I recommend you balance up by reading this - because, frankly, once this quality of scholarship is encountered, the more fashionable stuff that's on offer begins to look embarrassing. I cannot recommend this highly enough.
