    Still, if anachronism is the greatest crime a historian it is probably the least of the sins of Messrs Freke and Gandy. But I stand by my claim that Stanton is as close to the middle ground as it is possible to get in this notoriously polarised field. I have to admit that it isn't really a great read and Grant is not remotely concerned about a lot of the questions that exercise NT scholars. His activities were confined to Galilee and Judea.

    Primitive Christianity. While some disputed the existence of ancient Nazareth, his biblical childhood home town, archaeologists have unearthed a rock-hewn courtyard house along with tombs and a cistern. This is a major new work — a sure to be discussed collection by New Testament scholars, early Judaism scholars, and theologians, and with Wright replying. It reckons well with the real Jesus, not a straw man or caricature, and that is both good and harder than it sounds. It is even able to dress itself up with certain scholarly technique, and with a little skillful manipulation can have much influence on the mass of people. The historical evidence for Jesus of Nazareth is both long-established and widespread.

    Dunn Dunn is a pre-eminent New Testament scholar. The Unauthorized Version Robin Lane Fox This is getting on a bit now but remains the best single volume treatment of the bible from the point of view of an agnostic historian. Tubingen, Howard Marshall is a leading New Testament scholar who is especially well known for his works on Luke-Acts, including Luke: Theologian and Historian and his commentary on the Acts of the Apostles. The Historical Argument for Jesus of Nazareth.

The historical Jesus book

About 10 years ago, The Jesus Project was set up in the US; one of its main questions for discussion was that of whether or not Jesus existed.

The core elements of his teaching were magical healing and shared meals open commensality. It means that she or he, like Was lehrte Jesus? This chapter is important because Crossan later argues that Jesus drew on elements of the Cynical tradition.

With a scholar's familiarity with his subject, France moves through questions such as the genre of the Gospels, the fluidity of oral tradition, the creativity of early Christians, theological motivation and historical credibility.

We might not agree with all of these guys I mean, the last two are atheists but we certainly consider them serious scholars. Dunn Dunn is a pre-eminent New Testament scholar.

The book examines manuscript and archaeological evidence about Jesus from the viewpoint of the non-sceptic. Highly recommended.

The inerrantist will not be happy about this book, as Fox has to time for this point of view. Munich, However, there is interesting stuff here on how some of the more problematic passages can be interpreted as well as a dismissal of some the more desperate attempts by sceptics to find errors like the length of Jesus' ministry.

That would destroy their case and reading the Jesus Mysteries you would assume that neither Freke or Gandy knew of such a source even if it existed. Wells, a Professor of German who has ventured into New Testament studies and presents a case that the origins Christianity can be explained without assuming that Jesus really lived.

The "'nature' miracles of Jesus are actually credal statements about ecclesiastical authority, although they all have as their background Jesus' resurrectional victory over death, which is, of course, the supreme 'nature' miracle.

And rather than accept the consensus among historians and New Testament scholars that Josephus referred to Jesus on two occasions in Jewish Antiquities, the book rejects the idea that either reference is valid.

Albert Kalthoff. Das Urchristentum, seine Schriften und Lehren in geschichtlichem Zusammenhang beschrieben. But it sure does depend on the reality of a risen Lord and is a perfect follow up to any of the books mentioned above.

Archaeological evidence of Jesus does not exist. The other evangelists use both Mark and the Cross Gospel now preserved in the Gospel of Peter to give us the passion accounts we have today.Historical Jesus is the reconstruction of the life and teachings of Jesus by critical historical methods, in contrast to Christological definitions (the Christ of Christianity) and other Christian accounts of Jesus (the Christ of faith).

It also considers the historical and cultural contexts in which Jesus lived.

The Historical Jesus is a completely different kind of book. The blurb on my copy describes it as a "bestseller", but that seems a rather unlikely fate for a book that begins with a survey of the social anthropology of honour-shame societies and its relationship to the ecology of the Mediterranean!

Comprehensively detailing the sources for our knowledge of Jesus, Theissen and Merz fully explore the historical and social context of Jesus and his activity. They then unfold what we can know about Jesus' characteristics as a charismatic teacher, a Jewish prophet, a healer, a teller of parables and an ethical teacher.
