1st Fortress Press ed.
This now classic book is a significant corrective to several recent developments in the study of the historical Jesus. In contrast to depictions of Jesus as a wandering Cynic teacher, Geza Vermes offers a portrait based on evidence of charismatic activity in first-century Galilee. Vermes shows how the major New Testament titles of Jesus—prophet, Lord, Messiah, son of man, Son of God—can be understood in this historical context. The result is a description of Jesus that retains its power and its credibility.
