Jesus through the Centuries

Excerpt

This volume completes a series of studies that have been in progress for several years. In the first decade of the present century the question of Jesus' historical existence was vigorously debated, particularly in Germany. The results of this agitation were carefully examined, and their inadequacy was set forth, by the present writer in a volume entitled The Historicity of Jesus, first published in the year 1912 and reissued in a new and revised edition in 1928. A second volume, Jesus: A New Biography, published in 1927, attempted to exhibit the figure of the real Jesus of Palestine as he can be known today by the processes of historical research. The present volume follows up the previous inquiries by tracing the story of Christianity's interest in Jesus since the time of his crucifixion, in order to evaluate his significance for religion from the point of view of modern historical scholarship and in the light of present-day scientific ways of thinking.
