Amid competing portrayals of the 'cynic Jesus,' the 'peasant Jesus,' and the 'apocalyptic Jesus,' the 'political Jesus' remains a marginal figure. Douglas E. Oakman argues that advances in our social-scientific understanding of the political economy of Roman Galilee, as well as advances in the so-called 'Third Quest' for the historical Jesus, warrant a revival--and a critical revision--of H. S. Reimarus's understanding of Jesus as an instigator of revolutionary change.
