In Search of the Historical Jesus

Lecture no. 19 from the course: Understanding the New Testament

In Search of the Historical Jesus

Taught by Professor David Brakke | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

The “Historical Jesus” refers to the man named Jesus of Nazareth as opposed to the Christ we find in the gospels—a challenge for historians given that the gospels are our primary sources. Trace the development of biblical scholarship and research after the Renaissance and Enlightenment, when scholars began to think critically about the man named Jesus.
