After his definitive The Historical Jesus, John Dominic Crossan delivered Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography-a popularized, bestselling account of what we can know about the life of Jesus. Here he offers the core of his life's work-a concise and astonishing presentation of the authentic teachings and earliest images of the revolutionary Galilean sage. Crossan's fresh translations of Jesus' sayings show Jesus to be a teacher whose radical message that all are equal before God is as timely today as it was two thousand years ago. This picture is dramatically confirmed by the preConstantinian, Christian renderings of Jesus, which show that he was remembered by the first Christians not as God but as a revolutionary healer and leader.
