Item description for Jesus and the Fundamentalism of His Day by William Loader...
In Jesus and the Fundamentalism of His Day Loader investigates each of the four Gospels as well as the major streams of tradition that stand behind them. What emerges from this fascinating study is a diverse range of interpretations of Jesus. Mark depicts a Jesus prepared to jettison some parts of biblical law. Matthew and Luke, following "Q," portray a Jesus who remained fully observant of the Torah and made his impact though the placement of emphasis. John, by contrast, has Jesus assume the qualities of divine law within himself, never disparaging its requirements though for him they are no longer in force. Loader sets these diverse pictures of Jesus side by side, highlighting both their similarities and their differences and exploring the implications of his study for interpreting the Bible today.
