"Tatum invites readers to move from their own understandings of Jesus to a consideration of those literary sources on which all understandings ultimately depend - including the four Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Then he takes readers from the Gospels, each with its own distinctive portrayal of Jesus, to the level of historical reconstruction of Jesus' life and ministry within the setting of first-century Roman Palestine. Finally, readers examine issues in the study of Jesus' life and ministry by drawing on insights from the previous two stages. The intention is for readers to broaden and sharpen their understanding of Jesus by developing a conceptual framework for evaluating the many cultural and scholarly expressions of the Jesus story."--BOOK JACKET.
