Focusing on Jesus, this first volume has several distinct features. It garners the lessons to be learned from the qquest for the historical Jesusq and meets the hermeneutical challenges to a historical and theological assessment of the Jesus tradition. It provides a fresh perspective both on the impact made by Jesus and on the traditions about Jesus as oral tradition, hence the title qJesus Remembered.q And it offers a fresh analysis of the details of that tradition, emphasizing its characteristic (rather than dissimilar) features. Noteworthy too are Dunn's treatments of the source question (particularly Q and the noncanonical Gospels) and of Jesus the Jew in his Galilean context.Focusing on Jesus, this first volume has several distinct features.
