Approaching the historical Jesus is a fascinating task, one which is open to a large number of interpretations. It is difficult to reach a consensus on this, and both methodological insight and an exchange of scholarly ideas are required. New Testament writings are multifaceted, and this fact seems to preclude a closer understanding of the activities and identity of the Nazareth rabbi.

However, Jesus' life may be seen as a jouney which reflects uncommon trends and a definite perspective: the relation between himself and God, the Father. This book explores difficult subjects which are not usually dealt with in the "Third Quest," such as Jesus' birth and his family. Moreover, the reader will find other key issues which are crucial for research on the historical Jesus, such as his baptism, the question of whether or not he was a mystic and the traditions he initiated.
