Vermes on Pope Benedict XVI and the Jesus Quest

Geza Vermes reviews the new book on Jesus of Nazareth by Pope Benedict XVI. He finds that claims that the book would use historical critical practices to discuss the historical Jesus are far from accurate. His review also summarizes the history of the Quest for the Historical Jesus.

Mark Goodacre chimes in by recalling some recent posts on issues involved in describing the Jesus Quest.
