When scholars have set Jesus against various conceptions of the 'messiah' and other redemptive figures in early Jewish expectation, those questions have been bound up with the problem of violence, whether the political violence of a militant messiah or the divine violence carried out by a heavenly or angelic figure. Missing from those discussions, Simon J. Joseph contends, are the unique conceptions of an Adamic redeemer figure in the Enochic material- - conceptions that informed the Q tradition and, he argues, Jesus' own self-understanding.
