It is widely accepted that Jesus was a Jew. However, both Christian and New Testament scholarship have a strong anti-Jewish history. 'The Symbolic Jesus' presents the controversies surrounding the Jewishness of Jesus. It examines the insistence among historical Jesus scholars that Jesus was a Jew and the ways this frames the figure of Jesus in ancient Christian literature. The book examines the anti-Jewish legacy of the past and more recent approaches to biblical scholarship. Contemporary identity issues - scholarly, political, religious and cultural - are shown to lie at the heart of the debate.

William Arnal is Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.Review:
"Arnal skillfully argues that historical scholarship is always about the present. Yet Arnal is no debunker; he also argues that the contemporary implications of a scholar's work count neither for nor against its validity as historical scholarship. This book is concise, lucid and insightful. Highly recommended." - Religious Studies Review
