The Historical Jesus

Full Product Description

Recent years have seen an explosion of talk about the Historical Jesus from scholarly settings as well as media outlets (including sensational TV documentaries and national magazines). How is the student of the Bible to assess these various claims about Jesus? And what differences do his time and place make for Christian faith, theological thinking, and historical research?Charlesworth presents the solid results of modern study into the life and times of Jesus, especially the role of the Essenes, the significance of the Dead Sea Scrolls, Messianic expectation, and much more. No one today is better equipped than James Charlesworth to lead students through the thickets of controversy that surround much of contemporary Historical Jesus research. This "Abingdon Essential Guide" will fulfill the need for a brief, substantive, yet highly accessible introduction to this core area of New Testament Studies.Drawing on the best in current scholarship, written with the need of students foremost in mind, addressed to learners in a number of contexts, this "Essential Guide" will be the first choice of those who wish to acquaint themselves or their students with the broad scope of issues, perspectives, and subject matters relating to modern quests for the Historical Jesus.
It will also be a preferred text for those who need or want to refresh their knowledge regarding the context within which Jesus lived in preparation for leading church discussion groups in studies of the Gospels.
