Overview

A Doubter’s Guide to Jesus is an introduction to the major portraits of Jesus found in the earliest historical sources. A Very Short Introduction. 1Imaginings: Making Jesus in our image. 2Sources: How we know what we know. 3Teacher: His words and their impact. 4Healer: The deeds that baffle. 5Israel: A nation on his shoulders. 6Christ: More than a surname. 7Judge: His pledge to bring justice. 8Friend: The scandal of his social life. 9Temple: The relocation of God’s presence. 10Saviour: The meaning of his death. 11Adam: The promise of his resurrection. 12Caesar: His subversion of an empire. 13God: His oneness with the Almighty. 14Servant: His preference for the lowly. Epilogue: Portrait of a follower of Jesus. A Doubter’s Guide to Jesus is an introduction to the major portraits of Jesus found in the earliest historical sources. Portraits because our best information points not to a tidy, monolithic Jesus, but to a complex, multi-layered and, at times, contradictory figure. While some might be troubled by this, fearing that plurality equals incomprehensibility or unreliability, others take it as an invitation to do some rearranging for themselves, trying to make Jesus neater, more systematic and digestible. After two millennia of spiritual devotion and more than two centuries of modern critical research, we still cannot fit Jesus into a box. He is destined to stretch our imaginations, confront our beliefs, and challenge our lifestyles for many years to come. In A Doubter’s Guide to Jesus readers will find themselves both disturbed and intrigued by the images of Jesus found in the first sources.
