The present work is based upon Flusser's 1968 edition of Jesus. Yet, with the passage of 30 years, the new volume has been essentially rewritten to incorporate the wealth of new data. Whereas the previous book, now out of print, represented the beginnings of Flusser s investigation into the historical Jesus, the present volume is its culmination."

Written by a Jew who was part of the Jerusalem School of Synoptic Studies. Interesting to look at Jesus from a Jewish viewpoint – also shows the difference in which we interpret the Scriptures in relationship to the Lord Jesus.
