Forwarding a comprehensive introduction to Jesus and the gospels for college and seminary students, Jesus of Nazareth invites readers into an exciting encounter with an ancient pattern of communication and the ageless testimonies concerning Jesus of Nazareth. New Testament scholar Gerald Borchert begins with discussions on communications and patterns of reading the Bible and ends with implications of the study in terms of both doubt and belief.
Organized into four parts, Jesus of Nazareth discusses the context into which Jesus came; the Gospels as authentic testimonies concerning Jesus; the analytical methods that have been used to interpret the Gospels, including textual, source, form, redactional, narrative, and social and cultural approaches to these documents; and formulating a picture of the significance of Jesus that emerges from the study of the four canonical testimonies. He closes the work with suggested implications of this study in terms of doubt and rejection on the one hand and worship as well as living and witnessing to and for Jesus on the other.
Written with clarity and erudition, this accessible introduction reflects a lifetime of both classroom and church experience in teaching the Gospels.
