Excerpt

The aim of this book is to disentangle the Gospel of Jesus from some of the interpretations and large speculations of those hellenizing or Greek-thinking adherents whose writings found a place in the standard collection of the Christian community. This disentanglement has been made possible by a century of biblical criticism and investigation of the religious beliefs of the Mediterranean world in the Apostolic Age; it has been made more desirable than ever by a growing sense that the shafts released against Christianity hit the followers of Jesus and their views of him rather than the Master himself; and it is urgent with the urgency of the world's unceasing need of the highest religious truth and poise and inspiration.

The aim of the book, therefore, is clear, simple and constructive.

May the reader find its conclusions warranted by history and welcome as affording a new angle from which to see that Teacher who has so largely controlled the history of nineteen centuries, and from whose spirit we anticipate far greater gains for the centuries to come.

G. H. G.
