Routledge Encyclopedia of the Historical Jesus by Craig A. Evans

Book Description

This Encyclopedia brings together the vast array of historical research into the reality of the man, the teachings, the acts, and the events ascribed to him that have served as the foundational story of one of the world's central religions. This kind of historiography is not biography. The historical study of the Jesus stories and the transmission of these stories through time have been of seminal importance to historians of religion. Critical historical examination has provided a way for scholars of Christianity for centuries to analyze the roots of legend and religion in a way that allows scholars an escape from the confines of dogma, belief, and theological interpretation. In recent years, historical Jesus studies have opened up important discussions concerning anti-Semitism and early Christianity and the political and ideological filtering of the Jesus story of early Christianity through the Roman empire and beyond. Entries will cover the classical studies that initiated the new historiography, the theoretical discussions about authenticating the historical record, the examination of sources that have led to the western understanding of Jesus' teachings and disseminated myth of the events concerning Jesus' birth and death. Subject areas include: * the history of the historical study of the New Testament: major contributors and their works * theoretical issues and concepts * methodologies and criteria * historical genres and rhetorical styles in the story of Jesus * historical and rhetorical context of martyrdom and messianism * historical teachings of Jesus * teachings within historical context of ethics * titles of Jesus * historical events in the life of Jesus * historical figures in the life of Jesus * historical use of Biblical figures referenced in the Gospels * places and regions * institutions * the history of the New Testament within the culture, politics, and law of the Roman Empire.

Why are There Differences in the Gospels? by Craig A. Evans Why are There Differences in the Gospels?, Hardback (January 2017)

Why are there differences in the stories of the Gospels? Licona turns to Greek classicist Plutarch for an answer, assessing differences that appeared when Plutarch told the same story more than once in his Lives. He suggests the differences in the Gospels often resulted from their authors employing the same compositional devices used by Plutarch.
