    Meier's third installment into his very thorough and wide ranging survey into the historical Jesus continues with his methodological rigor and attention to detail not holding back to challenge certain passages and accept others using his method Personally this work had several very interesting bits to it but not as interesting as his previous two works Meier divides his work into two sections the followers of Jesus crowds disciples the 12 and his competitors religious leaders and sects pharisees sadducees essenes samaritans zealots scribes herodians etc The two emphases Meier gives throughout the work is Jewishness of Jesus through his relationships with these two broad groups This plants Meier firmly into the third uest The book is interesting in discussing these groups however perhaps I simply missed the focus on Jesus himself as I read this work that was so firmly repeated in the previous works I very much look forward to the next volume

    Meier turns his methodological eye onto the companions and competitors of Jesus This is a somewhat illuminating book on the various groups in Judaism in first century Palestine but there's not much new that Meier brings to the table This is basically a condensation of recent scholarship on the matter Nothing much new is illumined in the way of Jesus Still a good book to read and a worthy entry into his series although this is definitely the black sheep of the family


  3. BHodges BHodges says:

    Meier's series continues as he takes a look at the groups surrounding Jesus's ministry The Pharisees Saducees Essenes Zealots scribes etc all go through his clearly stated rubric of determining historical circumstances Looking forward to vol 4

    Una buena exposición ue permite identificar de mejor manera los grupos sociales y religiosos con los ue Jesús estuvo o podría haber esta relacionadoSe puntualizan algunas ideas sobre coincidencias y diferencias ue surgen en otras obras ue no tienen suficiente rigor
