Document Type



The goal of the "quest for the historical Jesus" is often phrased as the quest to discover Jesus "as he was," an enterprise which typically entails finding Jesus without and apart from the church and confessions about him. This "historical" pursuit of Jesus "as he was" is undertaken both by those who wish to debunk Christian confessions of Jesus and those who hold those confessions. Scholars of all persuasions find it uncommonly difficult to adhere to this historical method, narrowly defined, and consequently the Jesus who is recovered by scholars in the interests of finding the historical figure mirrors their own sensibilities. htt p://
