What Have They Done with Jesus?

Beyond Strange Theories and Bad History--Why We Can Trust the Bible
<P>Strange theories about Jesus seem to ooze from our culture with increasing regularity. Popular books and network TV specials proposing bizarre, historically unfounded tales of Jesus's mysterious bloodline and secret teachings continue to titillate the religiously curious. Witherington, one of the top Jesus scholars today, will have none of it. There were no "Jesus Papers," no "Lost Christianities," no secret "Gnostic teachings" in the first century. With leading scholars and popular purveyors of bad history in his crosshairs, Witherington reveals what we can&ndash;and cannot&ndash;know about the real Jesus. </P><P> Utilizing a fresh "personality profile" approach, Witherington highlights core Christian claims by investigating the major figures in Jesus's inner circle of followers: Mary the mother of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Thomas, Peter, James the brother of Jesus, Paul, and the mysterious "beloved disciple." In each chapter Witherington satisfies our curiosities and answers the full range of questions about these key figures and what each of them can teach us about the historical Jesus. In what amounts to a vigorous defense of traditional Christianity, What Have They Done With Jesus? offers a compelling portrait of Jesus's core message according to those who knew him best.</P>
