For instance, Tom Wright states the following: The Jesus the Gospels describe doesn’t always fit with what the church at various periods has expected to find. He isn’t ‘gentle Jesus, meek and mild’; he isn’t simply the teacher of lofty truths; he isn’t instructing people on how to go to heaven when they die; he isn’t teaching about a nonpolitical, non-earthly ‘religion’ or ‘spirituality’ through which people can escape the present world and experience a private religious glow inside.

Comments to eBook The Original Jesus: The Life and Vision of a Revolutionary
Heraly
Multiple topics are covered within this book that make it an appropriate read for both beginning and more advanced students of Christian origins and the person and mission of Jesus of Nazareth. Any literate person from an astute high school student and beyond will be able to read this book and digest at least some of the author's insights. N. T. (Tom) Wright has the unusual ability to be erudite and profound in relatively simple language. While I find James D. G. Dunn's "Remembering Jesus" to be the current state of the art consideration of Jesus and the early Jesus movement's thoughts about him, nine hundred plus pages of scholarly prose is beyond the capacity of many readers. And, considering this book's sub-title, "The Life of a Revolutionary," I think R. David Kaylor's "Jesus the Prophet" to be a far fuller and more satisfying explication of Jesus' political mission.

With these thoughts in mind, what does one find in this slim little volume? The book's text of one hundred forty odd pages is divided into two equal length section and is full of striking color photographs and boxed inserts amplifying the narrative. The first sections deals with Jesus his message and his mission. Here Wright finds a radical, revolutionary message and a call to implement that message through the Kingdom of God on Earth. Based on a full understanding of the latest socio-rhetorical methods and insights, Jesus is effectively set in his time and place. Wright sees him as a messenger of peaceful revolution distinguished by passive resistance which would be truly unique in antiquity. This uniqueness of course flies in the face of historiographical norms which makes it suspect in some scholarly circles. However, the notion that Jesus was a violent Zealot revolutionary presaging the great Jewish revolt of 70 CE has fallen into disfavor over the last thirty years or so. In all fairness, it should be noted that a lively fringe movement still espouses this position, but it has scant support among current scholars of Christian origins and the historical Jesus.

The second section deals with the gospels that comprise the written record of Jesus' life and deeds and his followers' interpretations thereof. While having different facts and Christologies, the author correctly assures us that these highly disparate and often contradictory accounts are a natural result of varied authorship coupled with later interpretation and emendation. And yes, texts evolved in Antiquity to meet the needs of the communities they served. This was normal and accepted however difficult it is for the post modern mind to deal with. This is especially so since our minds have been conditioned since the Reformation by the concept of Biblical inerrancy. Wright challenges the assumptions and methodologies of the Jesus Seminar and finds their work unsatisfying and arbitrary and to some extent anachronistic. Other modern scholarship is engaged as well. A nice annotated additional reading list is included that fairly represents the diversity of modern scholarship as regards the topics under consideration here. Even those well read in the area may find some things of value here. This book is a remarkable achievement considering that it is such a short, lucid, and easy read. I have rated this book at five stars based on the fact that it accomplishes the task it undertakes with distinction. And that task as I have said in my title is to provide an introduction to this material. I most highly recommend this book especially to those new to the subject.

The reference material is extensive and cites material I did not know had been discovered, let alone studied. The suggestions for self study have me rereading the Bible in a way I had not considered. For any layman that thinks they know their bible I recommend this book. It is an eye opener.
Mavivasa
I liked to writing and it is good to have pictures of places he spoke about. I also liked the area where he compared the four Gospels.
Pedar
Tom Wright gives us the shortened 2.0 version of the Gospel in this easy to read book. Wright explains what it means to be a believer and why Jesus Christ has to be the focal point of that belief.
Thordibandis
Going to the holy land. Easy to read and understand. Was helpful. Would be one I would recommend for before the trip.
Phain
This is a great easy to read book on the "original" Jesus. Wriight does a great job covering the background of some of the New Testament through context: culture, traditions, etc. of the times it was written in.
Yainai
Good book
For those wanting a little more background on Jesus and the Gospels, I recommend this book. I have learned so much from Tom Wright's historical perspective on Jesus. Well written, and fairly easy to read, I recommend it for the layman and scholar alike.
