In this exciting book, Paula Fredriksen explains the variety of New Testament images of Jesus by exploring the ways that the new Christian communities interpreted his mission and message in light of the delay of the Kingdom he had preached. A new introduction reviews the most recent scholarship on Jesus and its implications for both history and theology.

"Brilliant and enjoyable. . . . Magisterial."--Géza Vermés, Times Literary Supplement

"Brilliant and lucidly written, full of original and fascinating insights."--Reginald H. Fuller, Journal of the American Academy of Religion

"This is a first-rate work of a first-rate historian."--James D. Tabor, Journal of Religion

"Fredriksen confronts her documents--principally the writings of the New Testament--as an archaeologist would an especially rich complex site. With great care she distinguishes the literary images from historical fact. As she does so, she explains the images of Jesus in terms of the strategies and purposes of the writers Paul, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John."--Thomas D'Evelyn, Christian Science Monitor
