This volume presents a collection of papers by scholars from Europe and the USA on a question which is currently again the subject of intensive discussion - the figure of the historical Jesus. One main problem is that of methodology - how in general can history be constructed from texts, how is it possible in this particular case to draw a picture of Jesus the person from the texts about him? This question is placed within the wider context of epistemological and historiographical enquiry.

A further major question is that of the relationship between Jesus' work and the development of the Christian faith. Whereas earlier scholars often saw a gap between the two, many of the present contributors put forward a different point of view. In addition, a number of questions of detail are treated which are important for research into the historical Jesus (the law, Jesus' concept of death, judgement and salvation).
