Jesus according to Scripture: Restoring the Portrait from the Gospels

by Darrell L. Bock

While noting how details of the canonical presentation of Jesus relate to first-century Palestinian culture, Jesus according to Scripture is not a historical study of Jesus. Instead, it seeks to show the coherent portrait of Jesus that emerges from the Gospels, a portrait that is rooted in history and yet has produced its own historical and cultural impact.

Overview

While noting how details of the canonical presentation of Jesus relate to first-century Palestinian culture, Jesus according to Scripture is not a historical study of Jesus. Instead, it seeks to show the coherent portrait of Jesus that emerges from the Gospels, a portrait that is rooted in history and yet has produced its own historical and cultural impact.

Bock begins with a brief overview of each Gospel, surveying its structure, themes, authorship, setting, and date. He then offers a detailed, unit-by-unit examination of Jesus as portrayed in the Synoptic Gospels, followed by an analysis of Jesus portrayal in John. He finishes with a summary of the themes found throughout the Gospels, thus unifying them into a cohesive portrait.
