2002 - Chris Knights - Jesus’ Changing Faces. A Response to Geza Vermes

Having read the previous editor’s warm, but not uncritical, review of Geza Vermes’ The JL Changing Faces of Jesus (Allen Lane, Penguin, 2000) in the September 2000 issue of this Journal, I was pleased to obtain a copy of this important book soon after - from the second-hand bookstall of a church fair, of all places! I have always appreciated Vermes’ writings, and I believe that he has done biblical scholarship a great service in his work on the Dead Sea Scrolls, on the ’new’ Schurer, and on the historical Jesus. Indeed, I regard myself as something of an ’academic grandson’ of Vermes – my doctoral research on the Rechabites, carried out in Durham in the mid-1980s, was supervised by Robert Hayward, who had been one of Vermes’ research students in Oxford a decade or so earlier.
