Jesus of Nazareth continues to fascinate. From antiquity onwards
countless people have found meaning for their lives through Jesus'
teaching. His life led to the establishment of a community that
subsequently grew into what is today the world's largest religion.
At the center of the Christian faith stands the confession that
this Jesus is both "true human being and true God."
In Jesus of Nazareth, noted German New Testament scholar Jens
Schroter directly addresses the connection between Jesus' humanity
and divinity--how the historical Jesus can also be the Christ of
confession. Schroter begins by looking at the modern quest for the
"historical Jesus" from its beginnings down to the present. In the
process Schroter isolates key questions of historical method--how
can we reconstruct the past? What is the relationship between these
reconstructions and past reality itself? Schroter then examines the
words and deeds of Jesus, including his death and resurrection, in
their Galilean and Greco-Roman contexts. Schroter finally measures
the impact that Jesus has had in literature, film, music, and the
fine arts. Jesus of Nazareth thus narrates the remarkable story of
how a Jew from Galilee became the savior of the world, how Jesus
can be said to be both God and human, and how this Jesus continues
to exert influence.
