The Real Jesus - For Further Reading


Jerusalem street

One of my doctoral qualifying exams (1980) was on ancient Christology (the Christological controversies). My Jesus-studies are ongoing.

Here are  some books and websites I recommend for more reading on Jesus, 
with a few annotations.

It's good for Jesus-followers to engage in Jesus-studies.

Note: The vast majority of people who critique Jesus
haven't even begun to seriously study him.
