Jesus and the Scriptures: Problems of Authentication and Interpretation

Hägerland, Tobias LU (2016) In Jesus and the Scriptures: Problems, Passages and Patterns p.3-30
Abstract
As an introduction to the volume, this chapter discusses some of the methodological problems involved in assessing the questions of the historical Jesus’ engagement with the Scriptures of Israel. It is claimed that any method for studying the historical Jesus must take into account the two major tasks of Jesus research, viz. ‘authentication’ and ‘interpretation’. The article then discusses how extant methods for these two tasks can be adapted in order to function properly when applied to the complex question of Jesus and the Scriptures.
