A marginal Jew : rethinking the historical Jesus by John P Meier( Book )

75 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 3,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Meier's previous volumes in the acclaimed series A Marginal Jew are founded upon the notion that while solid historical information about Jesus is quite limited, people of different faiths can nevertheless arrive at a consensus on fundamental historical facts of his life. In this eagerly anticipated fourth volume in the series, Meier approaches a fresh topic-the teachings of the historical Jesus concerning Mosaic Law and morality-with the same rigor, thoroughness, accuracy, and insightfulness on display in his earlier works

The vision of Matthew : Christ, church, and morality in the first Gospel by John P Meier( Book )

11 editions published between 1978 and 2004 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume Father Meier explores how Matthew remodeled the form, the Christological message, and the moral demand of the gospel. Part I shows Matthew's church in crisis. It was experiencing a shift in its Christian existence from a narrow Jewish-Christian past to a universal Gentile future. To preserve yet reinterpret the particularistic traditions of the Jewish-Christian past, Matthew drew up a model of salvation history and then reshaped the gospel message. Part II offers a mini-commentary on the whole gospel to illustrate this reshaping of the message. Pericope by pericope, Matthew presents Jesus as Son of God and Son of Man, and therefore as the definitive teacher of his church. Indeed, the nexus between Christ and his Church emerges as the outstanding characteristic of Matthew's gospel. Part III studies Matthew's construction of a unified moral vision on the basis of this connection between Christ and Church. The basic stance of Jesus and his disciples towards the Mosaic Law is one of fulfillment - but a "prophetic" fulfillment which involves at times a deepening of, at time the abrogation of, the letter of the Law. --from back cover

A marginal Jew : rethinking the historical Jesus by John P Meier( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the late nineteenth century, New Testament scholars have operated on the belief that most, if not all, of the narrative parables in the Synoptic Gospels can be attributed to the historical Jesus. This book challenges that consensus and argues instead that only four parables-those of the Mustard Seed, the Evil Tenants, the Talents, and the Great Supper-can be attributed to the historical Jesus with fair certitude. In this eagerly anticipated fifth volume of 'A Marginal Jew, ' John Meier approaches this controversial subject with the same rigor and insight that garnered his earlier volumes praise from such publications as the 'New York Times' and 'Christianity Today'. This seminal volume pushes forward his masterful body of work in his ongoing quest for the historical Jesus."--Publisher

8 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Desde finales del siglo XIX, un gran número de estudiosos del Nuevo Testamento ha trabajado con la creencia de que, si no todas, la mayor parte de parábolas de los evangelios sinópticos son atribuibles al Jesús de la historia. En este quinto John Meier cuestiona ese concesos y defiende mediante una sólida argumentación que solo cuatro parábolas (El grano de mostaza, Los viñadores perverso, Los talentos y La gran cena) pueden ser asignadas al Jesús de la historia. El profesor Meier aborda el controvertido tema de las parábolas con el mismo rigor y la misma penetración que le granjearon elogios en los anteriores volúmenes de "Un judío marginal". Con este tomo trascendental, el autor enriquece todavía ma´s su magistral obra y da un paso ingente en su continua búsqueda del Jesús histórico
