“Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. Woe unto you, scribes …” (Matthew 23:24–25).
In Who Was Jesus our guide, N. T. Wright, strains gnats in reviewing recent popular books about Jesus, and swallows the camel, summarizing in the first chapter the last 300 years of research on the historical Jesus and in the last chapter summarizing his own views.
