Hailed as "an event in the intellectual history of our time", Bornkamm's 'Jesus of Nazareth' marked a turning point in modern understanding of the Gospels and the elusive figure who stands behind them. While Bornkamm admits, with Albert Schweitzer and others, that it remains impossible to write a "biography" of Jesus, he shows in this book that it is possible to arrive at a reliable understanding of Jesus' thought and teaching and to achieve a historically sound picture of the sort of person Jesus was, as well as what he was trying to accomplish.
Part of Fortress Press's classic text series. "This volume has justifiably held a leading position among scholarly presentations of Jesus' life and teachings".--Amos N. Wilder.
