The fifth volume of Martin Hengel's Selected Essays contains 27 studies which concern Jesus as a person, his works and the four Gospels. These studies were written over a period of 55 years. They focus on the historical Jesus and also deal with the trends in the Gospels and the circumstances surrounding their origins.
The fifth volume of Martin Hengel's Selected Essays contains 27 studies which concern Jesus as a person, his works and the four Gospels. These studies were written over a period of 55 years. They focus on the historical Jesus and also deal with the trends in the Gospels and the circumstances surrounding their origins. The studies evolved primarily from lectures given by the author and thus reflect a part of his scholarly development, his arguments and his interests. At the same time they show that the way he deals with philology and history, the question concerning the truth of the Gospel and his opinions of contemporary issues cannot be separated from the author's »theological existence«, and that it is this interaction which makes his exegetical and theological work so productive.
