reviewed The Essential Jesus: Original Sayings and Earliest Images on
John Dominic Crossan is one of the foremost New Testament authorities. We read the gospels without any clue about the cultural scene in which things were said. Crossan strips commentary and has only the bare sayings of Jesus, which gives everything a bit of a different perspective. The early plates of healing and eating with others were fascinating, though hard to see.
