"Robin Scroggs's The People's Jesus asks one of the most crucial and strangely neglected questions for the study of the early Jesus movement: How did the vision and beliefs of the Jesus movement appeal to the ordinary believer and why did they find them meaningful? By tracing three trajectories--the identifications of Jesus as the cosmocrator, as the apocalyptic judge, and as the miracle-working Christos--Scroggs is able to construct a conceptual map that encompasses the core vision of the documents of the New Testament. This volume is full of deep learning, balanced judgment, and an extraordinary effort to discern coherent structures permeating earliest Christianity." --John S. Kloppenborg, Department for the Study of Religion, University of Toronto
