Jesus, An Historical Approximation by José Antonio Pagola

Jesuw book seems to dovetail nicely with the ministry of Pope Francis with its description of a Jesus who wants nothing more than to bring His Father’s aroximacion, acceptance, and mercy to a world that is starving for those things.

A Jesus whose teachings might actually explain the following that sprang up after his death. The analysis of Jewish society of Jesus’ time in Galilee and its surroundings, the analysis of Jesus’ parables, the analysis of the political and religious powers that dominated the society that Jesus had, the aproxumacion set up in which Jesus freely associated with the tax collectors and women, the details on crucifixion, etc shed new light on the Jesus’ message of ‘Reign of God’ and his understanding of ‘God, the Father’.

Written in a popular style, the book presents a valuable portrait of Jesus, the man, without sacrificing any of his divinity.

I imagine that some Catholics and conservative Protestants might be made uncomfortable by the places where the author strays from an orthodox interpretation of scripture based on sound scholarship. His goal in writing this in-depth study was to try to answer these questions: What were the basic characteristics of his activity, the thrust and essential content of his message?


But even if you don’t feel comfortable with some of the things in this book, you’ll get so much out of the rest. Refresh and try again. Sep 05, Paulson Pulikottil rated it really liked it. It is a Jesus we can both love and admire. An excellent exploration of the historical Jesus grounded in a narrative style. Who was the Jesus of history?

So, much as I admire this work and recommend it to others, it has led me to conclude that the “search for the historical Jesus” is more reliable at revealing the assumptions and inclinations of the searcher than a means to create a portrait of Jesus as he was, pre-resurrection.

How did he understand historkca life? Those of us who believe the Gospels to be written under the guidance of the Holy Spirit – i.

Recommended for those seeking to learn more of the time and place in which Jesus lived, and to spend time reflecting on His life, lived mainly with those on the margins and on his mandate to his followers to do the same.

I appreciated the author’s passion pun intended, I guess for his subject and gained insights from this work, which, although not a difficult read, took me a while to get through.

There are eight appendices and they are of utmost importance. Aproxinacion is historical and the other is theological. Along the way Jesus shocks his contemporaries’ sensibilities by, among other things, treating women with a dignity and respect that was unheard of in that culture at that time, and hanging out aproximacoin the people who needed him the most – sinners, prostitutes, tax collectors – not the kind of people you’d associate with holy men and women, even today.


It is here the author speaks of the jwsus technologies that are used presently in the study of historical Jesus,the criteria to decide upon the historicity of few details used are revealed to the readers, and the stupid sensationalism and the foolish historical claims of some popular writers like Dan Brown are answered, etc. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
