    Jesus is a magisterial distillation of Crossans lifelong work on the gospels and Jesus. It deserves careful and extended consideration by everyone seriously interested in the enigmatic sage from Galilee. With his work on Jesus, Crossan joins the ranks of the truly great biblical scholars of the twentieth century. His revolutionary biography is the biography of a revolutionary: the book and its subject are rebels in the cause of truth.

    - Robert W. Funk, editor of "The Five Gospels: The Search for the Authentic Words of Jesus" and cofounder of the Jesus Seminar

    Crossan paints his Jesus with great warmth and power. He achieves a portrait that both takes in the contemporary background yet accounts for Jesus distinctiveness...This Jesus is a Jewish peasant, with a direct sense of Gods immediacy, who shatters all social restraints."

    - New York Times Book Review

    "This is an extremely interesting, erudite, informative, must-read for anyone interested in the New Testament...Read it."

    - National Catholic Reporter
