Description: It is hardly possible to keep track of the multitude of publications that take up the question of the historical Jesus. Nevertheless, this new textbook compiles a wide set of relevant contributions on Jesus research from the 18th century to the present, furnishing an in-depth survey of the field. In their introduction, the editors place each of the texts in its proper scientific context, thereby illuminating the successive stages of Jesus research from a historical perspective.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Form, Tradition and Redaction Criticism, Textual Criticism, Social-Scientific Approaches, History of Interpretation
