Overview

In Who Is Jesus? Keck clarifies the difference between the way Jesus is presented in the Gospels and the way critical historians portray him. He then explores, from four perspectives, Jesus' contemporary moral and theological pertinence. Keck looks initially at Jesus as a first-century Jew, then considers how Jesus' mission was energized by his grasp of the kingdom of God. He goes on to probe the meaning of the crucifixion of Jesus in light of the biblical understanding of God's holiness, a theme largely neglected today. Keck concludes his discussion by looking at Jesus' role in the moral life of the Christian community.

What People Are Saying

Beverly Roberts Gaventa
"Leander Keck invites readers into his own exploration of major issues in the study of Jesus: his Jewishness, his teaching, his death, and his significance for the moral life. While it engagingly maps the scholarly quest of the Jesus of history, Who Is Jesus? is equally attentive to the present tense. A welcome contribution for students and scholars alike."
—Beverly Roberts Gaventa, Princeton Theological Seminary, NJ
Frank J. Matera
"By focusing on the theological as well as the historical significance of Jesus, Keck sets the discussion of Jesus on a new and better track. Written with clarity and insight, this work shows the significance of Jesus for faith as well as scholarship. Put aside all those other books and read Keck!"
—Frank J. Matera, the Catholic University of America
Paul J. Achtemeier
"This book is vintage Keck-cogent, learned, instructive, nuanced, stimulating, provocative. A good antidote for facile answers to hard historical and theological questions about the reality and significance of Jesus of Nazareth, it is critically acute and theologically perceptive. The book is an essential addition to the library of anyone interested in the Jesus of history and his contemporary meaning. Take and read!"
—Paul J. Achtemeier, Union Theological Seminary, Virginia
