Be the first to ask a question about Jesus, An Historical Approximation. Lists with This Book. May 28, Lee Harmon rated it it was amazing. Who was the Jesus of history? Any more down-to-earth aproxmacion be dishonest, for Jesus truly was exceptional.
This is a Jesus who desperately wants his audience to embrace what he calls the reign of God, or the kingdom of God, and who gently teaches in parable and example how it can come about.
It is a Jesus we can both love and admire. A Jesus whose teachings might actually explain the following that sprang up after his death.
But still a very human Jesus, with real problems. Pagola has carefully extracted the meat from contemporary Jesus scholarship and flavored it with common sense. Jul 16, JeanAnn rated it it was amazing Shelves: The author, Jose A.
Pagola himself has dedicated his life to Biblical studies and Christology and has done research on the historical Jesus for more than 30 years.
His goal in writing this in-depth study was to try to answer these questions: How did he understand his historifa What were the basic characteristics of his activity, the thrust and essential content of his message? Why did they kill him?
Jesus, An Historical Approximation by José Antonio Pagola
How did the adventure of his life end? Recomendado, sin duda, se sea cristiano o no. Dec 18, Mary Ellen rated it really liked it Shelves: 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. In particular, I benefited from his discussion of historical, economic and political jsoe at the time of Jesus. However, I got annoyed by two things. One, the reliance of the author on the consensus of a select group of current theologians as a determiner of truth.
Second, the tendency – not unique to this writer 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. Second, the tendency – not unique to this writer – to have an idea of who the “historical Jesus” was, and then joee explain away everything in the Gospels that goes against this picture.
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 historkca a means to create a portrait of Jesus as he was, pre-resurrection.
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.
Es un xntonio excelente. Sep 05, Dhanaraj Rajan rated it really liked it Shelves: An interesting book on Jesus. There are many books on Jesus and this book is ‘an historical approximation of Jesus’.
There have been pagoka books written to present the Historical Jesus. For those who are confused about the usage of the term ‘historical Jesus’ a small clarification: Jesus of History and Christ of Faith. These are two major joes in the study of Jesus. One is historical and the other is theological. Historical Jesus would mean to get near the historical figure of Jesus as An interesting book on Jesus. Historical Jesus aproxiamcion mean to get near the historical figure of Jesus as he historcia in Galilee in his own days.
Christ of Faith would indicate the theological thinking centered on and about the person of Jesus, the Son of God. Historical Jesus has always been the subject of study for a very long time and Historical Jesus has always interested many. There have been many books on this theme and they were all highly scholarly and were apeoximacion difficult for the ordinary lay readers.
It is here the difference of this book lies.
This is written for the lay readers the author also states it as his intention. Though this is written for the lay readers this book does not lack the research or the use of the research materials.
The author is a well known scholar and he has used all the knowledge that he had gained for the very human presentation of Jesus in today’s language. In simple words, this is a research work that is readable. An Observations as a believer: There are many revealing and refreshing details.
Jesue analysis of Jesuus society of Jesus’ time in Galilee and its surroundings, the analysis of Jesus’ parables, the analysis of the political and religious josf that dominated the society that Jesus had, the social 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’. These details are never presented in a spiritual manner.
They are presented in the secular language. But the impact that made on me, a believer was great. There are eight appendices and they are of utmost importance. It is here the author speaks of the research 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.
Apr 09, Shawn rated it it was amazing. This is really a refreshing, if long, book. The author has a far-reaching knowledge of practically all of the scholarship concerning Jesus, his life and times. Written in a popular style, the book presents a valuable portrait of Jesus, the man, without sacrificing any of his divinity. I really got the sense of getting to know Jesus better through this very thorough exploration of his life that uses the Gospels as its baseline qntonio and brings what’s there alive with everything that is known abou This is really a refreshing, if long, book.
I really got the sense of getting to know Jesus better through this very thorough exploration of his life that uses the Gospels as its baseline source and brings what’s there alive with everything that is known about the New Testament era through all of the research that has been done over the last century.
The portrait that emerges is of a Jesus who is all about his relationship with his Father, and their desire to bring truly good news to a repressed people.
Along the way Jesus historcia 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 with 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.
This 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 love, acceptance, and mercy to a world that is starving for those things. 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. And “liberals” may be uncomfortable with a Messiah that relates to a masculine God, or one that doesn’t seem interested in political revolution as much as personal liberation from everything that demeans human happiness and dignity.
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. It took me forever to read this book, but it was worth the trip. Sep 05, Paulson Pulikottil rated it really liked it. Excerpts from the review on www. Pagola argues that this is required because Jesus Christ was incarnate in pagopa history and histoorica is a person of history.
But throughou Excerpts from the review on www. But throughout this book he interacts with other Jesus scholars and sifts in an immense amount of insights on the Roman and Jewish world of first century produced by contemporary scholarship.
Feb 21, John rated it it was amazing. Feb 14, Pat rated it it was amazing. Sep 02, Michael rated it it was amazing. An excellent exploration jeshs the historical Jesus grounded in a narrative style. This may be the closest a writer ever gets to the heart and psychology of this historical rabbi from Nazareth.
