Jesus the Jew: A Historian's Reading of the Gospels

Synopsis

This now-classic book is a significant corrective to several recent developments in the study of the historical Jesus. In contrast to depictions of Jesus as a wandering Cynic teacher, Geza Vermes offers a portrait based on evidence of charismatic activity in first-century Galilee. Vermes shows how the major New Testament title of Jesus--prophet, Lord, Messiah, son of man, Son of God--can be understood in this historical context. The result is a description of Jesus that retains its power and its credibility.
