    McKnight on the Quest for the Historical Jesus

    I've not got much time to post today, but I did want to draw attention to Scott McKnight's series on the quest for the Historical Jesus. There are three entries so far Reimarus to Schweitzer, Bultmann to the Jesus Seminar, and the Jesus Seminar.

    Over at New Testament Gateway (where I first read about McKnight's series) Mark Goodacre raises one objection:
    There is one comment I'd like to question:
    If the days of Reimarus to Schweitzer were the old quest, the period of Bultmann is the "no" quest.
    ...Allison points out, many books about the historical Jesus were produced during that period, e.g. most famously by Joachim Jeremias.
