Description

This work is a careful and critical study of the biographical information about Jesus of Nazareth.The results of this work must be taken into account in future research into the gospels’ use of sources and historical reliability. Through careful comparative study of the relevant ancient sources, with which many contemporary interpreters are not adequately acquainted, this book shows that the gospels were competently and reliably written.

3 reviews for Biographies and Jesus

  1. In this meticulously argued book, Keener and his colleagues demonstrate that biographers were deeply attached to their historical sources, especially when their subject belonged to the recent past. The implications of these findings demand careful consideration by scholars of the Gospels and the Historical Jesus alike.

  2. The results of this work must not only be taken into account in future research into the gospels’ use of sources and historical reliability, but they will also provide further avenues for profitable future research. Where these essays build upon my initial research into this field, I am honoured by their subsequent attention, but the consequences go much further and wider than I had hoped or imagined. This collection deserves a wide circulation.

  3. Through careful comparative study of the relevant ancient sources, with which many contemporary interpreters are not sufficiently acquainted, Keener and company convincingly demonstrate that the Gospels represent competently written, reliable biographical information about Jesus of Nazareth. Biographies and Jesus is a great book that will go a long way toward setting the record straight.
