"Provocative and readable...A remarkable achievement."-Jaroslav Pelikan, Yale Univ. "No one in our generation is more broadly and deeply prepared than Sanders to tackle the daunting array of problems confronting the historical Jesus. This book will become the standard against which future reconstruction of the historical Jesus of Nazareth will be compared."-David Dungan, Univ. of Tennessee, Knoxville. "For Professor Sanders, Jesus is a well-authenticated figure about whom we know a surprisingly large amount. He is particularly succesful in unraveling the complex business of New Testament chronology. - He then takes us step by step through Jesus' career, pausing to look in detail at the more notable problems, such as the miracles, Jesus' followers, his opponents, his last week in Jerusalem, his trial, execution and the Resurrection. - I shall keep this valuable book handy on my shelves, and use its expertise and logic to confute irrtating sceptics." -Paul Johnson in the Sunday Telegraph
-Publisher

This is a biography of the historical figure of Jesus. The book studies the relationship between Judaism and Christianity, distinguishing the certain from the improbable, and assessing the historical and religious context of Christ's time. The spread of Christianity is also discussed.

His field of special interest is Judaism and Christianity in the Graeco-Roman world. He wrote a ground-breaking book called Paul and Palestinian Judaism (1977) that has changed the face of modern Pauline Scholarship.
