Introduction to Fredriksen's book From Jesus to Christ.

One of the editors of her book From Jesus to Christ: The Origins of the New Testament Images of Jesus was E.P. Sanders. Along with Geza Vermes, she is often regarded as the most influential historical Jesus scholar in terms of placing him firmly within a Jewish context largely devoid of the kind of anti-Judaic (and sometimes anti-Semitic) bias that characterized Jesus scholarship in the 19th and much of the 20th century.From Jesus to Christ received the Governors' Award from Yale Press in 1988.
