The Originality of Jesus: A Critical Discussion and a Comparative Attempt
Bilde, Per

Göttingen: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 2013 pp. 303. $101.00

Series Information
Studia Aarhusiana Neotestamentica, 1

Description: For the first time in the history of modern Jesus research, Per Bilde aims his scholarly interest at the originality of the historical Jesus. Accordingly he examines the historical Jesus and 14 contemporary Jewish Palestinian figures who, in one or more respects, can be argued to be comparable to Jesus. He comes to the conclusion that Jesus can be regarded as similar to a number of these figures, however, some more than others, and that he appears to be unique in some other respects.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Synoptic Gospels, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches
