3 Quests for the Historical Jesus

Over the centuries, numerous Bible scholars have suggested that the gospel accounts can’t be trusted. These scholars argue that Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John were written too long after the life of Jesus, and they came from communities of later Christians, not eyewitnesses.

According to these scholars, the gospels turned a real man into a false god. The Jesus portrayed in the gospels is not the “historical Jesus” but the “Christ of faith,” exalted and deified by later Christians.

This argument launched a series of “quests” to identify the “real,” historical Jesus—which to some, were quests to explain away his divinity.

The debate has evolved over time, and the movement contains four main phases driven by numerous scholars and works.

Jesus of History and Christ of Faith

This is a presentation Nissa and I created for our course, ST2415 - Jesus Savior and the Triune God, this summer at Luther Seminary. It compares and contrasts Jesus of History and Christ of Faith. Ultimately, neither of us found it easy to abandon one for the other; instead, we came to see how one complements the other in our own theology. Major sources include Charlesworth and Bultmann.

This is for educational purposes only. 17 U.S.C. § 107

Who Was The Real Jesus Christ (Biblical Documentary) | Timeline

Enjoying our content? You'll love the Timeline History Channel app! Download now:
After the death of Jesus, his followers split into two factions. They held radically different views about their leader – his identity, his message and his vision of the future. One of those factions flourished under the guiding genius of St Paul – and eventually wrote its version of the story in the Gospels of the New Testament. The other faction withered and died away, leaving behind no written records. But what if the losers in this power struggle had written their version of the story? The Real Jesus Christ reconstructs that lost biography of Jesus: an alternative version of his life as it would have been told by those who lost the battle for the succession, but who knew him better than anyone else – his closest followers and his family.

The Real Jesus vs. the Historical Jesus

This video examines the difference between the real and the historical Jesus and discusses which Jesus the Bible is about.

Is there a Jesus of History that differs from the Christ of Faith?

Every Easter there are a bounty of Jesus documentaries and movies. Last year it was Son of God and this year it's Killing Jesus. Quite often the Jesus portrayed is not the Jesus found in the New Testament Documents.

Is there evidence for Jesus outside the Bible?

- At The Veritas Forum at the University of Chicago, Cambridge scholar Peter Williams lists some of the extra-biblical historical evidence for Christianity. He discusses Pliny the Younger's letter to Trajan about the early Christians as evidence of the beliefs of the early church which worshipped Jesus Christ as God. This - combined with Judaism's fundamental monotheism - is early evidence that Jesus Christ was quickly given stature as divine and not simply gradually exalted over time.

13. The Historical Jesus

Introduction to New Testament (RLST 152)

It is obvious that certain narratives in the New Testament contradict each other and cannot be woven into a historically coherent whole. How, then, do scholars construct who the historical Jesus was? There are several principles that historical Jesus researchers follow, which include considering data that 1) has multiple attestations and 2) is dissimilar to a text's theological tendencies as more likely to be historical. Using the modern methods of historical research, it becomes possible to construct a historical Jesus.

00:00 - Chapter 1. Contradictory Accounts in the New Testament
13:25 - Chapter 2. Finding History in the New Testament
26:27 - Chapter 3. Methods of Historical Jesus Research

The Christ of Weakness: The Historical Jesus vs the Jesus of Faith

Podcast on how Jesus is often spoken of as having weakness in the New Testament. In LDS vernacular, this sounds blasphemous but is highly consistent in our own scripture and the New Testament. The Christ of Weakness allows us to comprehend Him more. It is a detail that was lost during the apostasy and slowly being reclaimed today.
