Defining Jesus is ready the semantic content material of the identify Jesus. To what does the identify refer, specifically whilst editing adjectives are hooked up, resembling "the ancient Jesus," "the Jesus of history," "the earthly Jesus," "the biblical Jesus," "the genuine Jesus"? difficulties come up whilst advertisement writers and students, with out the required caveat, equate their hypothetical portrait of "the historic Jesus" with "the actual Jesus"--none except the Jesus of the 1st century "as he truly was." To disabuse scholarship of this hubris, the writer conscientiously delineates the various settings within which the identify Jesus seems to be within the ongoing discussion approximately Jesus of Nazareth. Its technique is apologetic: it defends the conventional language of Christian religion, arguing with Martin Kähler within the 19th century that the one Jesus Christians have ever recognized, or can recognize, is the Christ of faith.

"Soulen's defining of Jesus is necessary, profoundly transparent, and devoted. Judiciously distinguishing among the earthly Jesus, the biblical Jesus, and the true Jesus, the writer deals normative pics of Jesus essential to the church--hermeneutically sound, ethically practicable, and experientially established. This brief but magisterial publication is a must-read for all who search to appreciate who Jesus is in his earthly ministry, all through historical past, and for today."
-Yung Suk Kim, affiliate Professor of recent testomony, Samuel DeWitt Proctor college of Theology at Virginia Union University

"Amidst the more and more complicated claims approximately Jesus Christ this day, Defining Jesus is a beacon of sunshine as Soulen presents semantic and hermeneutical instruments, readability, and standards to assist readers traverse the rugged panorama and adventure the truth of the normal Christian faith."
—K. okay. Yeo, Harry R. Kendall Professor of recent testomony, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary

"Well-informed, certain, and insightful, Soulen's examine brings much-needed readability to a space that too usually lacks it. A publication in particular for these pressured and distracted through the commotions of latest scholarship."
