Overview

Jesus Remembered presents the lessons to be learned from the quest for the historical Jesus, focusing on the insights gained during this 200-year-old quest and assessing whether or not they are still valid, and, if so, to what degree? This book also argues that the Gospel traditions clearly portray the remembered Jesus, as they display how he impacted his first followers.

    This is a scholarly work, and this needs to be taken into account, just as we would adjust our expectations when reading a devotional work. This is the first volume, in the Author's three volume work looking at "Christianity in the Making". Thus, he correctly starts with Jesus - for what are we as Christians without Jesus. Whilst much has been written about the Historical Jesus or at least the search for him, and how he differs (often very dramatically) from the Jesus of the Gospels, or the Jesus of the Christian Faith, the Author argue that from a strictly scholarly point of view we face great difficulties in coming to grips with the Historical Jesus. Rather, we are on firmer ground, when we examine the Jesus that was remembered - how those first Christians remembered Jesus actions and words not only give us insight into the making of Christianity, but surely give us the only historically reliable view of Jesus himself. I especially liked the way the Author handled Oral Tradition amongst the first Christians. Some authors seem to treat this aspect with disregard or even disrespect, but this book helps to elevate it as an essential part of the formation of Christian Worship. I believe I have a much better understanding of this area thanks to this book, and thus am grateful to the Author for that. Even though the Author points out weaknesses with Q and with the Gospel of Thomas (as well as other Apocryphal Gospels), he does seem to rely on them a bit too much in his arguments for my liking. I realise this is most likely for the benefit of other Scholars who put a lot of weight on them. One of the reasons for choosing to read this book, was to get another perspective following reading Tom Wright's "Jesus and the victory of God" - and I am a big fan of that work. The Author does address Wright's work (as well as other authors writing in this area), and does so in a respectful manner, raising valid criticisms. However, whilst Wright separates his examination of the Resurrection into a separate volume, the current Author allocates only a chapter. Whilst it is indeed a worthwhile chapter, I would've appreciate more. I don't always agree with the Author's conclusions, and this book didn't have the same effect on me as Wright's work did. I would recommend it to those who have read and enjoyed Wright's work.
