    One thought on “Jesus and Judaism”

    1. In this volume from 1985, E.P. Sanders attempts to elucidate, from an historical perspective, the position of Jesus Christ within first century Judaism, and to account for his execution and the subsequent divergence of the early Christian church from the Jewish tradition from which they sprang. The picture he paints is that Jesus neither strongly identified with any of the major sects thriving at that time, nor, in principle, stood in stark opposition to any of them (and particularly the Pharise [...]

    2. It's pretty easy for works on the historical Jesus to start to run together after awhile, but what makes this especially interesting is the starting point: Jesus' disturbance of the Temple. It seems that recently most scholars in this vein start at Jesus' crucifixion and build out without a great deal of attention to Gospel texts themselves -- thus Jesus angered the Romans, thus he led a messianic movement, thus the Jewish authorities need not have been particularly involved at all, etc. By star [...]

    3. I chose this book to read as one of several options from more liberal scholars on the historical Jesus as this work was named by some summaries as one of the catalysts for the third quest for the historical Jesus. Several very helpful insights within and an important read, however I found his dismissal of numerous sayings as weak without adequate discussion of criteria of authenticity. Glad to have read this book though.

    4. Very much enjoyed that, after Sanders describes his own liberal and social-gospel church background, he says, "I am not bold enough to suppose that Jesus came to establish it, or that the died for the sake of its principles." (334)Sanders is clear that he works as a historian, not as a theologian. The book should be read accordingly.

    5. Sanders was actually surprisingly fun to read, and his critiques of protestant scholarship were helpful in a few key places.
