Jesus and the Pharisees, a Study in Christian Tradition

Excerpt

It is hoped that the following study may be useful in three fields: First, it supplements the existing literature on the Pharisees, in which Christian sources are slightly utilized, by placing beside the thoroughly adequate studies based upon the Jewish sources the data of the Christian traditions. Second, the development of the social-historical method needs several monographs upon certain subjects. This is one such, which, with others which should be produced, may serve as undergirding for a distinctly new study of early Christianity and of the life of Jesus. Finally, an important, though incidental, purpose, is its contribution to the correction of an injustice.

The materials of Part II, "Prolegomena," have been introduced with considerable hesitation. It is recognized that such a statistical study merely takes the place of first-hand inspection of the sources. Yet it is felt that it is of such importance that the Christian sources be compared with each other that the risk of dulness has been assumed.

This occasion is taken to express the author's thanks to Dean Shailer Mathews and to the Publications Committee of the Divinity School, of the University of Chicago; to Professor E. J. Goodspeed and Professor S. J. Case, of the University of Chicago; to President F. C. Eiselen and Professor E. W. Burch, of Garrett Biblical Institute; to Professor Frank J. Balzer, of Carlton College; and to Messrs. F. W. Gingrich and A. D. Beittel, of the University of Chicago.
