SHIFTING BOUNDARIES IN HISTORICAL JESUS RESEARCH? SOME CRITICAL REFLECTIONS ON PARADIGMS AND IMAGES OF JESUS IN CURRENT NORTH AMERICAN SCHOLARSHIP

Roger A Arendse

Abstract


There is a sharp interest in the historical Jesus in recent decades among (mainly) North American New Testament scholars.  Many of them claim that a veritable ‘renaissance’ or ‘third quest’ is underway in Jesus studies that shifts beyond the boundaries of both the ‘old’ and ‘new’ quests of former years.  New methods, increasingly more interdisciplinary in nature, are believed to produce better and more reliable images of Jesus of Nazareth and more accurate reconstructions of the social world he inhabited.
