Item description for Jesus And the Gospels (T&T Clark Approaches to Biblical Studies) by Clive Marsh & Steve Moyise...

This book offers an ideal introduction to the Gospels and explains why it is that scholars and lay people have such different understandings of the person of Jesus. The first half of the book looks at the main sources for the life of Jesus, principally the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, but also the so-called apocryphal Gospels. The second half of the book begins with an examination of the criteria employed by scholars to determine the earliest and most reliable forms of the tradition. This volume now includes: study questions at the end of each chapter, updated reading lists, and two new chapters bringing the scholarship up to date.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus And the Gospels (T&T Clark Approaches to Biblical Studies)?

Dont buy it if you are not a serious scholar or theologian  Jun 17, 2007
As there's no table of content here on this site, I would like to take the priviledge to type it for you as below:-

1. Introduction
2. Mark's Gospel
3. Matthew's Gospel
4. Luke's Gospel
5. John's Gospel
6. Apocryphal Gospels
7. The quest for the historical Jesus
8. Jesus: prophet of the coming kingdom
9. Jesus: teacher and sage
10. Political and ethical interpretations of Jesus
11. Jesus in art, media and culture
12. How Christology works: the Gospels in practice

Actually, as an average Christian, I wonder whether I am qualified to judge this book at all. Let me show you the questions in chapter 8 (there are 3 questions in the end of each chapter),

Q1. What is meant by saying that Jesus was an eschatological figure?
Q2. What was it that Jesus expected to happen soon?
Q3. Is it possible to interpret Mark 12:24-7 as describing the destruction of Jerusalem?

Nevertheless, as a book lover, I deem the writing dull and dry. A safe advice would be: for serious scholars only.
Excellent orientation on Jesus in the Gospels and Christ for today.  Oct 25, 2006
As a student of the Bible, I have benefited from the presentation Marsh and Moyise offer of the Jesus made known in each of the four New Testament gospels, as well as in lesser known gospels not accepted as part of the Bible. Their simultaneous engagement with contemporary scholarship on Jesus as a prophet, as a "word-spinner," as a political liberator engaged with the poor and with women as well, as a spiritual and ethical guide, and as the Christ of Faith provides a deeper sense of both who Jesus was and how we may understand him today.
