Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Jesus as Peasant Sage is one of four volumes in which leading historical-Jesus scholars engage with, and build upon, the historical-Jesus contributions made by four key contributors to the field. Each volume will identify and evaluate the key contributions made by a significant historical-Jesus scholar who has had a tremendous impact on what has been termed "the third quest for the historical Jesus." As well, the essays by their fellow historical-Jesus scholars will demonstrate the person's influence with contributions to the discipline that build upon the scholar's key contributions. Furthermore, the entire project is intended to be a dialogue, for the person will be given an opportunity to respond to the essays of his fellow scholars.
This volume looks at the work of John Dominic Crossan. Crossan is known for his work in interpreting Jesus using cross-cultural methods. He understands Jesus to be a cynic-like sage who counter-culturally works for a "brokerless kingdom" in which there is "open commensality" among those who follow Jesus' teachings. He is known for demonstrating the importance on incorporating the use of non-canonical sources in one's reconstruction of Jesus. Some of his historical-Jesus works include Four Other Gospels (1985), The Cross that Spoke (1988), The Historical Jesus: The Life of a Mediterranean Jewish Peasant (1991), Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography (1994), Excavating Jesus: Beneath the Stones, Behind the Texts (2001; co-authored with Jonathan Reed), and most recently, God and Empire: Jesus against Rome, Then and Now (2007).
