A Marginal Jew: Rethinking the Historical Jesus, Volume I – The Roots of the Problem and the Person

This is John Meier’s first of five? The real Jesus may be someone different, but Meier does not approach this volume with faith and church tradition as reliable sources. In fact, the inside of the jacket cover describes the historic Jesus as one that could be agreed upon by a Catholic, Protestant, Jew, and Agnostic. This volume focuses on two major aspects of the historicity of Jesus. The first aspect identifies the sources, which by and large is exclusivel Marfinal is John Meier’s first of five?

The first aspect identifies the sources, which by and large is exclusively the gospels. The next best source is Josephus, who only has a couple short references to Jesus and one of them is in question. He disputes the apocryphal gospels as being written much later and dependent on the actual gospels for source material. The second major aspect Meier addresses is the roots of who Jesus was. He covers the infancy narratives and also explores the culture of the time to understand things such as what language Jesus spoke, his level of literacy, his relationship with his siblings, etc.

Meier concludes this volume with a uh on the chronology on Jesus’ life an interesting study, jonh. The scholarship and readability of this book are profound. The reading does not gloss jarginal evidence, yet it manages to be light enough for the casual reader interested in a deep understanding of the historical Jesus. This alone leads me to grant this review five stars. In general, he handled the historicity fairly. At times I felt his presumptions trended to the left of center he doubts Jesus’ birth in Bethlehembut he does not take uun definitive stance, leaving room for the reader to form his own opinions based on the evidence.

Jesus p.mejer a man of johnn upbringing, from a small town, and there is limited source data to understand who he was from a historic perspective. I look forward to reading the next p.meer. Aug 23, Shawn rated it liked it. This is the pm.eier of a four-volume work by a Catholic biblical scholar.

It is difficult to explore the life of Jesus without encountering yourself. This study of t This is the first of a four-volume work by a Catholic biblical scholar. To be here, in this particular dimension of time, and to be for anything other than the precepts that constitute God, is not worth living.


Our spiritual existence temporarily straddles the physical world, which will eventually disappear, leaving us solely within the spiritual dimension.

Let us go there in blazing glory, as did Jesus, standing firm in the truth, regardless of what physical threat comes at us. In this way, we accomplish the eternal objective of unmasking the physical world, to unveil spiritual reality. Biography Jesus grew up in an insignificant village Nazareth in the hills of Lower Galilee, a village so obscure that it is never even mentioned in the Old Testament.

His mother was Mary, his father Joseph, and his four brothers: James, Joses, Jude, and Simon. Jesus had at least two unnamed sisters. Nazareth was a village of close to 2, Jews. The Judaism of Galilean peasants was fiercely loyal to basics like the Mosaic Torah, circumcision, and the Jerusalem temple.

Jesus lived for roughly years in the first century. He was born around 6 B. We know at best, selected marginla from three or four years of his life. As a carpenter, Jesus would p.meiier built many different things, including various pieces of furniture, cabinets, plows, yokes, windows, lattices, doors, etc.

His occupation required technical skill, tools, sweat, and muscle power. Jesus gave up his physical labor for spiritual labor. Jesus came into the world to work and build, but his physical building eventually gave way to spiritual building.

Even though Jesus was obviously literate, there is no indication of higher studies at some urban center such as Jerusalem. Apparently, Jesus possessed a high degree jihn natural talent and genius, which more than compensated for his low level of formal education. Jesus came out of a peasant background.

In primitive societies the producers control the means of production, including their own labor. They directly exchange their own labor and its products for the equivalent goods and services of others. However, as culture develops, the means of p.neier pass from the hands of the primary producers into the hands of groups who do not engage in the productive process themselves.

Rather, this new group, the rulers of the state or the city, assumes special executive administrative functions, backed up by force. The flow of goods and services becomes centralized in a state or city whose dominant members absorb the surpluses produced by the peasants, both to support themselves and to distribute the remainder to other groups in society.

In other words, it is the rise of the state or the city that calls forth the precise social group we call peasants. Instead of loving their neighbor as themselves, they exploited their neighbor as occurs today.

Instead of contributing their own valuable work to society, they selfishly take advantage of society for selfish benefit. This gives us some perception of how one must have felt under the unyielding dominance of Rome, where certain citizens languished in vulgar excess, over the impoverished that they dominated. It is clear that Jesus was an effective teacher. Three New Testament passages inform us that Jesus was literate: We know that Jesus was very adept in the use of scripture.

The scriptures tell us that Jesus was able to read and explain the Scriptures and we know this was a revered goal for all religiously minded Jews of this mxrginal.


Jesus is presented by almost all the Gospel traditions as engaging in learned disputes over scripture and he was accorded the respectful title of rabbi or teacher.

These books were composed somewhere mraginal A. Of particular interest are the number of Gospels not included in the Bible: Josephus – The writings of Josephus A.

For he was a doer of startling deeds; and a teacher of people who receive the truth with pleasure. And he gained a following both among many Jews and among many of Greek origin. He was the Messiah. And when Pilate, because of an accusation made by the leading men among us, condemned him to the cross, those who had loved him previously did not cease to do so.

For he appeared to them on the third day, living again, just as the divine prophets had spoken of these and countless other wondrous things about him. And up until this very day the tribe of Christians, named after him, has not died out.
