Who was Jesus? An apocalyptic prophet? An aphoristic sage? The messiah of Jewish expectations? In Jesus, Joshua, Yeshua of Nazareth, Gordon Clouser analyzes the question of the historical Jesus and argues that the realities of Jesus’ ministry place him squarely in the forefront of Jewish messianic culture. Presenting conclusions matured by a lifetime of research and personal reflection, Clouser courageously—and effectively—refutes scholarly “new consensus” positions on the historical nature of Jesus. Clouser directly confronts the Jesus Seminar’s characterizations of Jesus as an aphoristic sage. He rebuts scholars’ attempts to separate beliefs of John the Baptist and Jesus. He contends that the imminent-coming/end-time Son of Man passages are not gospel authors’ promotions of Paul’s second coming of Jesus, nor in fact are they Jesus’ predictions of his own return. In place of conventional thinking, Clouser advances a fresh, yet feasible explanation for the “Son of Man” identification for Jesus. In Jesus, Joshua, Yeshua of Nazareth Gordon Clouser addresses an ages-old controversy with answers that will thoroughly satisfy the thoughtful seeker of historical truth.
