Introduction by James H. Charlesworth

This new edition of David Flusser's classic study of the historical Jesus, revised and updated by his student and colleague R. Steven Notley, will be welcomed everywhere by students and scholars of early Christianity and Judaism. Reflecting Flusser's mastery of ancient literary sources and modern archaeological discoveries, The Sage from Galilee offers a fresh, informed biographical portrait of Jesus in the context of Jewish faith and life in his day.

Including a chronological table (330 BC – AD 70), and twenty-eight illustrations, The Sage from Galilee is the culmination of nearly six decades of study by one of the world's foremost Jewish authorities on the New Testament and early Christianity. Both Jewish and Christian readers will find challenge and new understanding in these pages.

Review:

Living Church
"Never in all my years of reviewing books have I been so enthralled, excited, and empowered as I have been with this reintroduction of Flusser into my reading repertoire."

William Klassen
— in Religious Studies Review
"Flusser is not only brilliant and thoroughly familiar with all classical sources, Jewish sources, and later Christian sources that bear on our understanding of Jesus; he is also passionately concerned that the historical Jesus be taken seriously. He readily admits that he, an observant Jew, personally identifies himself with the worldview of Jesus, both moral and political: 'The content of Jesus' teachings and the approach he embraced have always had the potential to change our world and prevent the greatest part of evil and suffering.' For years I have been recommending this as the best book on Jesus available. No better way to discover the Jewishness of Jesus and possible links to Qumran than to read this book."
