A compelling biography of Jesus of Nazareth, written by eminent Jewish scholar of the Second Temple and Early Christianity.

10 R. Steven Notley book, in effect, creating a new book. Not only has there been a wealth of new data, but Flussers own thinking has evolved in light of this information. Thus, those who are acquainted with the 1968 book will find the present volume a new work. One novel contribution is Flussers personal sketch of Pontius Pilate ( pp. 151- 158). He pieces together the fragmentary evidence, mention of Pilate on the dedicatory inscription found at Caesarea and the scant references to the prefect in the literary sources. The result is a compelling psychological portrait of one of the central figures responsible for the death of Jesus. Flussers study helps us to understand how Pilates personal weaknesses played into the tragic chain of events and contributed to Jesus eventual execution. The 1968 English translation, now out of print, represented the beginnings of Flussers investigation into the historical Jesus, whereas the present volume is its culmination. Rarely does one encounter a scholar with such a passion to understand Jesus and his message. Nor are there many who have such a mastery of the classical sources and the ability to use them in such a way that the person and message of Jesus find fresh and simple clarity. Flussers philological- historical approach calls for a reconsideration of how we read the literary sources. He brings to bear the wealth of new information concerning the first- century setting in the light of the Dead Sea Scrolls, historical inquiry, and recent archaeological discoveries. What results from his biographical study is a portrait of Jesus which gains additional depth because it is viewed within the context of Jewish thought and life of the first century. Jesus was comfortable with the warp and woof of Jewish dialectic. Flusser demonstrates that he was familiar with— and even skilled at— the sometimes intricate nature of Jewish hermeneutic. Yet, while Jesus echoes many of the sentiments of his contemporaries, it would be a distortion to ignore his distinctive contributions to the landscape of first- century Jewish ideas. Nevertheless, what Flusser has advanced in this volume is a claim that even Jesus most radical conclusions would have been unthinkable without the innovations of those in the generations before him and the nurturing environment of contemporary Jewish thought.
