In Jesus and the Fundamentalism of His Day Loader investigates each of the four Gospels as well as the major streams of tradition that stand behind them. What emerges from this fascinating study is a diverse range of interpretations of Jesus. Mark depicts a Jesus prepared to jettison some parts of biblical law. Matthew and Luke, following "Q," portray a Jesus who remained fully observant of the Torah and made his impact though the placement of emphasis. John, by contrast, has Jesus assume the qualities of divine law within himself, never disparaging its requirements though for him they are no longer in force. Loader sets these diverse pictures of Jesus side by side, highlighting both their similarities and their differences and exploring the implications of his study for interpreting the Bible today.

This provocative work is certain to stir as much discussion as any book written this year. Seeking a correct understanding of Jesus' own views on the authority of scripture, William Loader examines the ways in which the Gospel writers and their forebears portray Jesus' use of the Law. Loader investigates each of the four Gospels as well as the major streams of tradition that stand behind them, and he offers a new perspective on the likely stance of the historical Jesus. What emerges from this fascinating study is a diverse range of interpretations of Jesus sure to spark discussion throughout the church.
