What do we really know about Jesus and how do we know it? Jesus in the Gospels and Acts: Introducing the New Testament explores these questions from the perspective of the New Testament--specifically the four Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles, as well as the extracanonical gospels. Using language and concepts considerate of a religiously diverse undergraduate audience, the author explores issues of authorship, historicity, culture, and theology.

Features include:
  • "Check Your Reading" questions check the students' basic comprehension.
  • "Do You Have the Basics?" puzzles check for comprehension through crosswords, word finds, sequencing, and matching activities.
  • "Questions for Reflection" challenge the students to think more deeply about the reading's meaning and the implications for us today.
"This book focuses on the central figure of the Christian Scriptures: Jesus. Arguably, no other figure in history has had more influence in shaping many of the religious and cultural norms in the world today. Whether you belong to a specific faith tradition or none at all, possessing a working knowledge of Jesus and the Gospels is important for religious, historical, and cultural literacy." --from the author's introduction 185445 Anselm Academic;, Daniel J.
