Crossan takes a good, long look at the same evidence that everybody else has got and fits it to support some very interesting theories on the miracles, everday acts, and sayings attributed to Jesus. He pays close attention to linguistic issues within the treatment of sources, but some of his logic can be misleading to the untrained reader- I'd suggest using this text to support academic studies but not as one's first glimpse into the field of the quest for the historical Jesus, because some subtle liberties and assumptions about the sources are glossed over in Crossan's attempt to present tedious historical analysis and textual/form criticism to the general public.

Crossan is obviously an accomplished scholar and a brilliant writer. However, I do not find his portrait of Jesus as a societal rebel very convincing. His description seems to be based on too many shaky assumptions. Crossan is more successful in showing just how elusive the historical Jesus can be for any New Testament critics bold enough to join the search. The book is definitely not intended to make the reader feel comfortable but I highly recommend it.

Yep I totally agreed. And about the differences between Lutheran abd Catholic im not totally sure, but we both believe strongly in God and Jesus. I think its more our style of faith. We believe faith and forgiveness with God will take us to heaven rather than only good works, but ee still try to do good things of course. Catholics follow the pope and Lutherans follow the teachings of Martin Luther. Anyway sorry for long speal!
