Item description for Jesus in the Gospels: A Biblical Christology by Rudolf Schnackenburg, Schnackenburg & O. C. Jr. Dean...
Overview According to renowned biblical scholar Schnackenburg, a truly historical portrait of Jesus is unattainable because the primary sources written about Jesus were not historical records as such. What is attainable, however, is a faith interpretation of Jesus' life and works, gleaned from the writings of those closest to the life of Christ--the four Gospels.

Thus, Schnackenburg provides a full faith interpretation of Jesus as each Gospel community portrayed him. A surprising number of commonalities about Jesus are revealed, and a fully recognizable portrait of Jesus emerges.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus in the Gospels: A Biblical Christology?
Ron Newberry Dec 21, 2000
It is good to find a scholar who is also a believer. Jesus is more than a collection of sayings. To understand Jesus, one must believe in Jesus. Professor Schnackerburg has done a good work on the connection between faith in the Jesus of history and the Christ. To really know Jesus, we must have the Jesus of history and the Christ proclaimed.
This is a good work and well worth your time.
Upholding the Canonical Gospels Oct 8, 1998
In a time when biblical scholarship teases the minds of pop culture with raw historical criticism, Rudolf Schnackenburg carries us back into the four Gospel accounts of the canonized New Testament with vigor. His concern is rather contrary to what seems to be the "contemporary" discourse surrounding the question of who Jesus of Nazareth really was or is. Only sparingly engaging the debate of the historicity of Jesus, Schnackenburg offers us a refreshing and rather classic view of how one may discover and know who Jesus was. His argument is that it is only through the canonized gospels that, when read in conjunction and in conversation with each other, we may be able to discern who Jesus of Nazareth really was and indeed, how the appropriation of what we read in the gospels with faith aids and illuminates our understanding. Not only is this a good argument for how one may discover who Jesus really was aside from raw historical criticism (supported by the Jesus Seminar), it also offers us a good resource summarizing each gospel account in its own right and then brings them into conversation with each other to get at one enduring picture of who and what we can know Jesus to be for us.
