Battling Over the Jesus Seminar

Buyer Beware!

Sensationalist claims sold here

By Ben Witherington III

Robert Miller’s thoughtful response to critics of the Jesus Seminar, myself included, is of value not least because of its irenic tone. It was my aim when I wrote The Jesus Quest (InterVarsity Press, 1995) to approach the matter in the same way. Arguments should be answered with arguments, not mere rhetoric or polemics. I have no complaints whatsoever about open forums of discussion on the historical Jesus and his life, times and teachings. Public discourse is certainly not the problem.
