Publisher Description

Jesus is in the news as much now as ever before. Whenever there is new evidence or a new analysis about Jesus, the newspapers get interested. Many continued to be fascinated by the person of Jesus and by whether or not he actually did and said what the New Testament Gospels say he did.

This book, written in a lively, non-technical style by biblical theologian Tom Wright, is an ideal introduction for anyone approaching the subject of the “historical Jesus” for the first time.

In The Original Jesus, Wright focuses on key stages in Jesus’ life and on key elements of his teaching. In the process, Wright presents a vivid reconstruction of what Jesus himself was aiming to achieve and how the movement he began can best be understood in relation to the turbulent politics and fervent aspirations of his day. Wright also looks at the way we interpret the different Gospel narratives about Jesus, showing how modern readers coming fresh to these texts can do so in an informed and discriminating way.

Based on rigorous historical research and featuring numerous full-color illustrations as well as short, clear chapters, The Original Jesus offers compelling insight into what Jesus really stood for, why he was crucified, and how it was that his followers came to regard him as nothing less than the human face of God.

    This book is primarily for readers who have little or no exposure to the idea that the Jesus of the gospels is a Jew preaching primarily to Jews in the first century Palestine of the Roman empire. The essential point which the book makes (very clearly and effectively) is that Jesus teaches from a Jewish heritage and perspective, to a Jewish audience who will understand his words within a Jewish conceptual framework. As will become clear to the reader, most of this background is now lost (almost irretrievably) beneath centuries of theological interpretation, covertly influenced and perhaps distorted by non-Jewish and even anti-Semitic thinking. I found the author's analysis mostly suggestive rather than informative in any "scholarly" detail. This, however, appears to be his intent. The book is most profitably read as a re-sensitization to the Jewish undercurrents of the gospels, a perspective often lacking even in knowledgeable Christian thinkers, I suspect largely due to the influence of Paul's animosity toward Mosaic law. It also seems largely forgotten, even by more advanced students of the gospels, that the so-called "primitive Church" was a branch of Judaism. Yet that very perspective is essential to a deeper understanding not only of the setting of the gospels, but also of their core meaning. Kudos to the author for trying to break through the dross of interpretation (and distortion) to this core. The book may be read very profitably with these points in mind.
