This is from Yes, this book is nearly years old, but I would put it top of my list of the classics. The reason I chose it is because it’s mainly about what other people have made of Jesus.

The Fellows of the Jesus Seminar are currently engaged in this quest. Critics have charged that the Seminar's portrait of Jesus is unbiblical.

      The seminal book on the history of historical investigation of the life of Jesus. It takes the reader up to the beginning of the 20th century, and is still, over a years later, a significant contribution to the study of the life of Jesus(Schweitzer's own perspective was that Jesus was a failed eschatological Jewish prophet, still remains a popular view)/5(67).   The following is a summary/review of: W.P. Loewe, “The Historical Jesus,” in New Catholic Encyclopedia, 2 nd ed., vol. 6 (Gale, ), The quest for the “historical Jesus” is aptly defined by W.P. Loewe as an attempt to reconstruct the earthly life of Jesus with the use of historical critical methods.

This is an older book (published in ) but it still has a very important role in the quest for the historical Jesus, describing what is called the “First Quest.” This book is basically an overview of German New Testament scholarship in the nineteenth century with one chapter on Schweitzer’s own views (although he does critique other.

SUMMARY. Witherington, in this review of N.T. Wright’s Jesus and the Victory of God, argues that it is the most revealing of all the Jesus books in what has been called the “Third Quest” for the historical Jesus, not just because Wright offers a challenge to the dominant form criticism model championed by Bultmann and his followers, but because he takes Jesus’ Jewishness and Torah.
