Description: Written by a select group of internationally renowned scholars, this volume authoritatively assesses the present state of historical-Jesus research. The book examines different aspects of Jesus’ life and thought in his historical and geographical setting and within his religious and cultural context, also suggesting what we may learn from Jesus’ teachings. / Arising from the first Princeton-Prague Symposium on Jesus Research, held in the spring of 2005 in Prague, this comprehensive collection from the luminaries in this area of research provides a much-needed focus on the issues involved with seeking to re-create Jesus in his world.
Subjects: Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Early Church Origins
