More About Gerd Ludemann & Tom Hall

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Gerd LUdemann is a professor of the history and literature of early Christianity at the University of GOttingen, Germany. Professor LUdemann's published conclusions about Christianity aroused great controversy in his native Germany, where the Confederation of Protestant Churches in Lower Saxony demanded his immediate dismissal from the theological faculty of his university. Despite this threat to his academic freedom, he has retained his post at the university, although the chair he holds was renamed to disassociate him from the training program of German pastors. LUdemann is also the author of "Jesus After 2000 Years, Paul: The Founder of Christianity," and" The Resurrection of Christ: A Historical Inquiry."

Reviews - What do customers think about Eyes That See Not: The Pope Looks at Jesus?

The Historical View  Apr 20, 2008
The book is brilliant...well written and is an excellent companion to the Popes book called Jesus of Nazareth. Excellent for use in small groups for laity who study theology. If one sees the Popes book as a theological reflection on the life of Jesus then Ludemanns book is the view of reality on the life of Jesus of Nazareth.
Interesting but Unfair  Apr 19, 2008
I thought Professor Ludemann's critique of the Pope's book interesting, and accurate on some points, but unfair. His principal critique is that the Pope professes to follow the norms of biblical criticism but then fails to do so. On the contrary, the Pope states at length that he is following a somewhat alternative methodology which he takes care to elaborate. Nor does Ludemann give the Pope credit for the Pope's reasoned views. For example, Ludemann states -- with no proof -- that Jesus never claimed divinity because, says Ludemann, that would have been blasphemy (though Ludemann does admit at one point that the theophany, "You are my beloved Son," might have been an inner experience on Jesus' part). The Pope, on the other hand, on the basis of the gospel texts, makes a rather convincing case that there is a high Christology (the assumption that Jesus is divine) not only in Paul and John but also in the synoptics. Now, Paul and the four evangelists, according to the best scholarship, were all Jews. What reason would they all have to commit blasphemy with respect to Jesus if Jesus himself had never claimed divinity? I expect, on the basis of the Pope's reasoning, that Jesus claimed exactly that. Nor would that be unusual in the history of mysticism. It would be par for the course for, according to the mystics of all the traditions, one eventually realizes that one is one with the divine. This is one example of Ludemann's rush to criticize the Pope without respect for what the Pope says or implies. Jim Marion.
