Product Description

Craig Keener's The Historical Jesus of the Gospels provides a defining argument leveraging an exhaustive amount of textual and historical evidence for the authenticity of the gospels' portrayal of Christ.

Known as an expert in ancient Jewish and Greco-Roman sources relating to the New Testament, Keener argues. In The Historical Jesus of the Gospels that the picture of Jesus presented in the Synoptic Gospels is far more plausible than many scholars give them credit for, and that the picture they paint is far more coherent than theories offered by the competing evidence proffered and reconstructed by modern scholarship.

As always Keener is exhaustive in both research and scope (the book contains 9 Appendices and over 500 pages of notes and citations) and examines evidence from the ancient world, and the Gospels themselves with world class scholarly precision. This book is ideal for graduate courses on the Synoptic Gospels that are especially concerned to deal with the question of the Historical Jesus, the events of his life, or the accuracy of the Synoptic witness.

    Excellent scholarly treatment of the issues

    Dr. Keener's masterful and scholarly research abilities show forth once again in this wonderful treatment of the historical Jesus. He has great discussions on the genre on the gospels and Acts which are filled with cultural background information in regards to what was expected from such works. He deals with pretty much every aspect of Jesus' identity and mission while offering careful insight into each issue. Although he does not directly refute the Jesus myth theory, once the book is read you get the impression no scholar could hold such a view in light of all the ways Jesus' sayings and deeds meet the criteria of authenticity.

    And the publisher's picture selection for the cover should not deter anyone (to the commenter below me).

    borderline fundamentalist slant

    a picture of a white European dude on the cover of a book titled The Historical Jesus. ?? hmmmm.....

    aside from that little mishap, this book while loaded with data and scholarly references, simply presents what seems to be like an almost borderline fundamentalist slant on the data. this book seems more like an apologetics book rather than an irenic scholarly reporting of the issues. this book will not give you a fair hearing on the many issues of which it treats. very difficult to find a book on this subject that does. Lee Martin McDonald and Stanley Porter's Early Christianity and Its Sacred Literature comes pretty close as far as i can tell.
