Characterizations of Jesus abound: “dying Savior,” “monk,” or “troublemaker,” for example. But who is Jesus? Who was Jesus—really? By surveying literary sources (including the Gospels), historical reconstructions, and aspects of Jesus’ life and ministry that have engendered continuing debate, Tatum enables readers to develop a conceptual framework for evaluating the various cultural and scholarly expressions of the Jesus story.
