Overview

This second edition of Jesus and the Gospels prepares readers for an intensive study of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and the events they narrate. Craig Blomberg considers the historical context of the Gospels and sheds light on the confusing interpretations brought forth over the last two centuries. This updated version, factoring in new scholarship, debate, critical methods, and the ongoing quest of the historical Jesus, ensures that the work will remain a top tool for exploring the life of Christ through the first four books of the New Testament.

The original 1997 book won a Gold Medallion Award from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association.

This is a rich resource from which even the seasoned scholar can pick up valuable material.

I. Howard Marshall, honorary research professor of New Testament, University of Aberdeen

There is no more important subject than ‘Jesus and the Gospels’ and no obvious rival to Blomberg’s book for those wanting an introduction to the subject . . . [the book] is wide-ranging and up-to-date, scholarly and accessible, conservative and intelligent.
