Q, the Earliest Gospel by John S. Kloppenborg

Book Description

Estimated to date back to the very early Jesus movement, the lost Gospel known as Q offers a distinct and remarkable picture of Jesus and his significance--and one that differs markedly from that offered by its contemporary, the apostle Paul. Q presents Jesus as a prophetic critic of unbelief and a sage with the wisdom that can transform. In Q, the true meaning of the "kingdom of God" is the fulfillment of a just society through the transformation of the human relationships within it. Though this document has never been found, John Kloppenborg offers a succinct account of why scholars maintain it existed in the first place and demonstrates how they have been able to reconstruct its contents and wording from the two later Gospels that used it as a source: Matthew and Luke. Presented here in its entirety, as developed by the International Q Project, this Gospel reveals a very different portrait of Jesus than in much of the later canonical writings, challenging the way we think of Christian origins and the very nature and mission of Jesus Christ.

Reading James with New Eyes by John S. Kloppenborg Reading James with New Eyes, Hardback (March 2007)

Examines the impact of the methodological developments in New Testament studies to the letter of James. This work contains the description of the methodological approach; the application of the methodological approach to James; and, a conclusion identifying how the methodological approach contributes to an understanding of the letter.

Apocalypticism, Anti-Semitism and the Historical Jesus by John S. Kloppenborg Apocalypticism, Anti-Semitism and the Historical Jesus, Hardback (December 2004)

Virtually all scholars agree that apocalyptic and millenarianism formed at least part of the matrix of the culture in first-century Jewish Palestine, but there is a sharp disagreement concerning the extent to which Jesus shared apocalyptic and millenarian beliefs.
