Outstanding; the latest research on the historical Jesus quest 15 Jun 2014
By Jeri Nevermind - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This collection of essays explores what's happened during the last 25 years of scholarship on Jesus.

Porter's essay begins by pointing out Schweitzer "is often depicted as having, with one...critique, reined the first...or old quest" (p 21). Mostly by pointing out that a group of liberal scholars went hunting for the real Jesus and found...not the real Jesus, but a Jesus that sounded suspiciously like a liberal scholar.

Various methods such as double dissimilarity, embarrassment, and double similarity were suggested. All have come under increasing attack.

Schroter points out that the belief in a sayings gospel and the hunt for Q increased the importance many scholars gave to the Gospel of Thomas. And my, hasn't that been reversed.

Archaeology has given us a much clearer picture of Galilee. It was "a predominately Jewish milieu' (p 42) instead of being mostly under the sway of Gentiles, as the now refuted Renan once argued. Galilee boasted a good network of roads.

Charlesworth has an excellent essay on the advances made in the last 25 years of research. Today "we have hundreds of ancient Jewish documents...and many of them were unknown before the forties...(and) the explosion of archaeological data that is Jewish and clearly pre-70 has changed the landscape of historical Jesus studies" (p 57).

Certainly one advance given by archaeological data has been to realize just how familiar the Fourth Evangelist was with Judea.

Craig Evans argues that for too long liberal scholars have tended "to disregard the presence of Old Testament Scripture in the dominical tradition" (p 182).
