Now, in his most controversial book, John Dominic Crossan shows that this traditional understanding of the Gospels as historical fact is not only wrong but dangerous. Ultimately, however, Crossan's radical reexamination shows that the belief that the Jews killed Jesus is an early Christian myth (directed against rival Jewish groups) that must be eradicated from authentic Christian faith.

It is both a popularisation of Crossan's earlier work The Cross That Spoke and a response to Raymond Brown's The Death of the Messiah. As motivation, Crossan argues that the anti-Jewish core of the passion narrative and its use in subsequent history make careful study of its historicity more than just an academic exercise. He doesn't mention that the faith of many conservative Christians depends on the historicity of the passion narrative - but then perhaps.

For Crossan (Biblical Studies/DePaul Univ. Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography, 1994, et. Jesus was the leader of a liberation movement that contrasted itself with Rome by seeking to empower rather than dominate people. This book is essentially a polemical reply to Raymond Brown's acclaimed Death of the Messiah and a popularization of Crossan's earlier study The Cross that Spoke: The Origins of the Passion Narrative. Crossan takes fierce issue with Brown, who holds that the various agendas at work in the passion narratives do not mean that they lack a strong historical basis.

Who Killed Jesus? - John Dominic Crossan. Here is the question at the heart of my book. Jesus stands before a Roman governor who declares him innocent and wants him released while a Jewish crowd declares him guilty and wants him crucified. Is that scene Roman history, or Christian propaganda?

I am in the process of reading every book Crossan has written. He is a genius. The depth and expansiveness of the research; the honesty, integrity and fearlessness of the questioning; the precision of the reasoning; the revelation of the insights; and the brilliance and clarity of his writing are incomparable. He makes the story of Jesus real again.

I guess the initial component of this review should be that, unless you have read some of John Dominic Crossan'd other works, this one may not provide the meat or background you are looking for. Likewise, if you are familiar with Raymond Brown's books on early Christian History, this book will be a surprisingly well done counterpoint.

Crossan examines the Gospel of Peter and his "Cross Gospel" theory against a backdrop that is both literary and anthropological. Examining the anti-Semetic elements of the Gospels against that diorama exposes the ascendency of Roman power in the first Century against the Jewish revolt, and the need for Christianity to distance itself as it became more mainstream among the Gentiles.

A noted scholar and prolific author, Crossan truly wishes to dig into historicized legend verses remembered history, and will make the reader think about the elements in light of scholarly research and recent archaeology. You will be challenged in your understanding, beliefs and assumptions as you read, which are good elements in the book.

Offsetting this somewhat is his heavy parallelism and apologetics to Raymond Brown's book on the same subject. Crossan has written on this subject before in many of his books, so this one is positioned more as an apology than an expose. That;s all fine and good, but is does detract a bit from the overall theme.

A good book, a great subject, a thougt provoker for certain.

Interesting topic, great analysis

Well researched. Though provocating, book. Do not agree with all conclusions, but each is well documented. I would recommend it.
This is a must read for anyone interested in exploring the roots of the new testament , written by a true scholar of the new testament. It is not a criticism of Judeo-Christianity, but an in depth analysis of The NT by a scholar who understands the literary history of the NT (new Testament).
