Hailed as an event in the intellectual history of our time, Bornkamm’s ‘Jesus of Nazareth’ marked a turning point in modern understanding of the Gospels and the elusive figure who stands behind them. While Bornkamm admits, with Albert Schweitzer and others, that it remains impossible to write a biography of Jesus, he shows in this book that it is possible to arrive at a reliable understanding of Jesus’ thought and teaching and to achieve a historically sound picture of the sort of person Jesus was, as well as what he was trying to accomplish.
