The Historical Figure of Jesus
E P Sanders
From The Publisher:
A portrait of Jesus Christ moves beyond the certainties of His historical context to consider what Jesus what like as a person, His intentions as a teacher, and the disciples' roles in Christianity.
"A generally convincing picture of the real Jesus, set within the world of Palestinian Judaism, and a practical demonstration of how to distinguish between historical information and theological elaboration in the Gospels."
