Article: The Next Quest for the Historical Jesus

Yesterday we shared a podcast that referenced this article, so it makes sense to showcase the primary source today! Crossley offers 10 areas that he foresees historical Jesus studies venturing into in the near future. Fascinating stuff. The Next Quest will utilise the innovations in the study of slavery among Christian origins scholars and understand more about its different forms in the Empire and the Levant, and how local Galilean and Judean audiences would have understood such references. Indeed, it is possible that slaves were actively involved in the transmission of material about Jesus. James Crossley
