Product Description

This book challenges the findings of the Jesus Seminar, the controversial group of two hundred scholars who claim Jesus said 18 percent of what the Gospels attribute to him. Drawing on the biblical and historical scholarship Johnson demonstrates that the "real Jesus" is the one experienced in the present through faith rather than the one found in speculative historical reconstructions. A new preface by the author presents his point of view on the most recent rounds of this lively debate.

Publisher's Description

The Real Jesus—the first book to challenge the findings of the Jesus Seminar, the controversial group of two hundred scholars who claim Jesus only said 18 percent of what the Gospels attribute to him—"is at the center of the newest round in what has been called the Jesus Wars" (Peter Steinfels, New York Times). Drawing on the best biblical and historical scholarship, respected New Testament scholar Luke Timothy Johnson demonstrates that the "real Jesus" is the one experienced in the present through faith rather than the one found in speculative historical reconstructions. A new preface by the author presents his point of view on the most recent rounds of this lively debate.

    The best book I have read on refuting the charges against Jesus by the Jesus Seminar. Dr. Johnson's scholarship shows throughout. I loved the way he put the study of the historical Jesus in context. It allowed me to see that I was approaching these issues from the wrong direction (i.e. the historicity not through my personal experiences.) Great book.
