Product Description

White believes the Gospels were not intended to be factual histories, but dramatic re-creations of Jesus' life for particular audiences, so the stories were edited for the greatest effect. Thus at times the disciples can appear as bumbling idiots, on other occasions as heroes; miracles may be altered or even disappear; entire scenes get moved around. 528 pages, softcover. HarperOne.

Publisher's Description

The greatest story ever told was honed like any good performance, on the road in front of audiences. Acclaimed scholar L. Michael White challenges us to read the gospels as they were intended—as performed stories of faith, not factual accounts—and illuminates the agendas that motivated each of their authors. A fresh account of the gospels that have shaped centuries of Christian belief, Scripting Jesus offers important insight into how we can understand Jesus’s story today.

Michael White is Ronald Nelson Smith Chair in Classics and Christian Origins and the director of the Institute for the Study of Antiquity and Christian Origins at the University of Texas at Austin. He is the author of From Jesus to Christianity and has been featured in and co-written two award-winning PBS Frontline documentaries.
