Barnett prefers to date Jesus' ministry from 2933 and explains Pilate's willingness to give in to the Jews based on the change of policies instigated by Tiberius after the execution of the anti-Semitic praetorian prefect Sejanus in 31. Then appears a lengthy chapter on Jesus' ministry per se, focusing on the self-revelation of one who had a robust messianic consciousness.

The pathway to understanding the New Testament leads through the vibrant landscape of the first-century Greco-Roman world. The New Testament is rooted in the concrete historical events of that world.

As usual, Barnett is excellent. it's the amount of details, the small facts he tosses in that are so useful For example, after Jesus' resurrection, Barnett suggests the disciples may have been meeting for the breaking of the bread in the large upper room owned by Mary, "the mother of John Mark. Mary's house boasted an outer gate, supported ...a maid...and was large enough" (p 198).

Also, Jesus was "described in rabbinic terminology. They had 'come' to him, 'followed after' him, 'learned from him' (p 201). And this is important because we know how Second Temple Jews passed on oral tradition. It was common practice among the students of famous rabbis to memorize their most memorable sayings, and to keep a notebook of all the important points.

In Acts, Paul says he was a 'citizen' of Tarsus. This would fly over the heads of most readers, but it meant that "his parents must have been 'citizens'...Substantial weallth, property worth five hundred drachmae...was required too qualify for enrollment as a citizen of Tarsus" (p 262).

Well written and brilliant scholarship.

It presents a good overall history and a great case that Jesus is true history and the Messiah. I lowered the rating to 3 stars because he spends a lot of space on speculation and conjecture. He also uses allegorical interpretation at times. I was also disappointed that-in the vein of conjecture-they treated unproven and theoretical documents as fact (L, M, and Q).

This may be one of the most dense books on my shelves, which is saying quite a bit as I'm mid-thesis at the moment. Barnett is a masterful writer and researcher - his book is fully accessible to someone new to this world and yet his dense footnotes provide hours of fascinating discovery for the advanced student of the first century. His meticulous research and clear presentation of the material makes this a must-read for anyone with even a passing interest in the world from which Christianity sprung. I highly recommend this to both scholar and novice friends alike - this is a true treasure of a book.

If you are wanting to add some great research material and powerful insights on the topic of Jesus and the birth of Primitive Christianity then you will find this book a must have. Unlike other books which read more like a conversation this book reads more like a lecture. You will have to carefully read and re-read most sections, not for the controversy but for the facts and detail.

The work by F.F. Bruce is still considered the gold standard in this area; however, as a lay individual, I find it much easier to move through and grasp Dr. Barnett's writing. If you're looking for a reliable, readable, highly useful work on N.T. History, purchase this book immediately.

So much scholarship contained between the covers of this book it was mind boggling, not so much that much of it has been discussed be other authors dealing with the same subject matter, but simply in the authors compelling presentation of material. It proved to be a very fine 'read' and provided much helpful information. I enjoyed it and intend to re-read at some point over the Summer.

I truly enjoyed this book! It brings to the life the struggles of the early church and highlights the commitment of the apostles to the mission of spreading the gospel "to the ends of the earth." It is an easy read, and well worth it! At times it can be wordy, but overall it achieves the purpose of detailing the early rise of Christianity.
