    Excellent Analysis From An Historian's Perspective

    Let me dispense first with the negative. The book offers little new by way of reconstruction of historical certitudes concerning Jesus of Nazareth. That said, I commend the author, a capable scholar and professional historian, for unabashedly taking on difficult topics such as Jesus' miracles and his resurrection. While I do not think that the author's focus primarily on the synoptic gospels does justice to any final picture of the historical Jesus (the exclusion of most of the material in John leaves the portrait lacking in a deeper understanding of Jesus' conception of his personal relationship with God, and its roots in the Old Testament), I have no quarrel with the author's methodology. He does make more out of the "multiple attestation" criterion of authenticity than I would allow, but that criticism is minor, compared with the overall quality and clarity of the analysis. All in all, well worth reading, at least for those who are willing to set aside, for the moment, the Jesus of faith in favor of an understanding of Jesus the Jewish teacher, prophet, and man of his times.

    This book gave a new look examining Jesus from a historical side nit just a theological side. I enjoyed reading it and it is well written . I used this book for school and learned much from it. Would highly recommend it as it gives a new perspective to the subject matter.
