Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Recent years have seen an explosion of talk about the Historical Jesus from the now infamous Jesus Seminar and from many various news outlets (especially sensational TV documentaries and national magazines). How is the student or pastor to assess these various claims about Jesus? And what differences do his time and place make for contemporary Christian faith? No one today is better equipped than James Charlesworth to lead students quickly and easily through the thickets of controversy that surround much of contemporary Historical Jesus research. Charlesworth provides an overview of three distinctive, modern quests fo rthe Historical Jesus. He evaluates the lasting contributions of each of these scholarly quests and then explains what successive generations of scholars have overemphasized and what they have left undone. Charlesworth concludes with a "just-the-facts" description of what we now know as we enter the 21st century about Jesus within his 1st century Jewish context. Charlesworth presents the solid results of contemporary research 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. 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. The Historical Jesus: An Essential Guide will be necessary reading for students in courses on the Gospels and courses on Jesus in seminaries and colleges. 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.

I'm not a Christian but I've read many Christian apologetics on Jesus and the Gospels. This is easily one of the best. While I do not subscribe to every point Charlesworth attempts to make, I find him very fair, balanced and persuasive.

The author answers 27 questions he asks of "Jesus Research" with insight and new research. He has a better handle on ancient Jewish writing, apocrypha & pseudopigrapha than many other scholars. Among the points he emphasizes are: 1) one must give honest answers, even if unpalatable; 2) Jesus was a devout Jew and not the first Christian; 3) archaeology helps us understand Jesus' cultural and geographic context; 4) we can know quite a bit with confidence about the man Jesus if we use good methodology; 5) Jesus probably started as a follower of John the Baptist; 6) Jesus was apocalyptic in focus, announcing the coming of God's rule, though he may have waffled on whether that was going to be accomplished in toto soon or at some unspecified future date and 7) historians can report what early Jesus followers claimed and believed, not whether it was true or false empirically. This is obviously just a small sampling of the book's content.

All in all, this is a well written book full of scholarly insight, yet written for a broad audience. Charlesworth has admirably walked a tightrope between being a Believer and a scholar, something few can do well. It certainly would be among the books I would recommend to anyone wanting to know more about Jesus: what and how we know about him.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Engaging survey by world-class scholar 12 mai 2008
Par J. F Joyner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Most Christians will find it new and possibly uncomfortable to adopt a historical (and archaeological) perspective of Jesus.

This book is readable by someone (or a church discussion group) who is seeking to learn; it is not a devotional or inspirational book.

The presentation is an engaging survey of what is known about the Historical Jesus; history and archaeology and the full range of ancient texts are all gleaned for reliable information.

This is not a book of apologetics, but Charlesworth probably has done more than any scholar to substantiate the historicity of the core historical facts about Jesus of Nazareth, and especially the historical elements of the Gospel of John.

Since at least 1980, the burden of Charlesworth's world-class ministry of scholarship has been to locate Jesus within Judaism, which he labels Jesus Research.

It contains a lot of interesting and relevant information, more fully appreciated by careful reading of what he has to say, and will wonderfully enhance any (serious) Bible student's comprehension of the canonical gospel accounts.

At this pricing it is a terrific value.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very helpful 30 mai 2014

I used this book for background research for a class I taught at my church on the quest for the historical Jesus. It is very well balanced between careful, scholarly arguments and accessible brevity. Charlesworth has chosen carefully the particular topics that probably are in fact the essentials. There is good background, not only on the history of the quest, but also on the kinds of questions that are essential and the ways of answering with academic and intellectual integrity. The book helped give me a sense of personal scholarship, a deeper appreciation for the professional scholars in the field, and a clearer view of Jesus and his world.

I would recommend this for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus, his world, and how he fit in it than you'll find in a wiki entry or the first couple pages in your internet search, but who don't have the time or desire for Meier's 5-volume masterwork. That should be a lot of people.

I found this book useful in its own right as well a a background reference to other works discussing the Jesus of Nazarth and the Jesus Christ. It gave depth to more superficial surveys and grounding for more detailed references. I found myself returning to this book, as a tether, in order to both check and keep my orientation as I read alternative less objective and more opinionated approaches.

It is small print but so worth travelling through. Well done and thought provoking.
