Overview

The most important development in recent historical Jesus studies is the attempt to understand the ministry of Jesus in "political" terms. In calling the nation of Israel to repentance, Jesus served as a national prophet concerned with the salvation of Israel. Scot McKnight furthers this line of inquiry by showing how Jesus' teachings are to be understood in relation to his role as a political figure. McKnight looks closely at Jesus' teachings on God, the kingdom, and ethics, demonstrating in each case how Jesus' mission to restore Israel brings his teachings into a bold new light.

Editorial Reviews

Choice
The book is remarkably lucid and informative, exemplifying careful attention to much significant literature on its topics. McKnight makes very good sense of how Jesus could have ended up on a Roman criminal's cross; in doing so, he improves on many contemporary treatments of the historical Jesus.... Highly recommended for all college libraries. All academic levels and general readers.
The Bible Today
An exceptionally good book on the historical Jesus.... The heart and foundation of Jesus' teaching, McKnight affirms, is Jesus' experience of and teaching about God. Jesus' understanding of God was forged within his Jewish heritage and is the ultimate source and point of coherence for everything else. McKnight illustrates this thesis forcefully and eloquently. While he does not attempt to draw out the full contemporary meaning of this perspective for Christian life, the thoughtful reader will find this a rich source of contemplation.
