The aim of A Spectator's Guide to Jesus
is to provide readers with an introduction to the major portraits of Jesus found in the earliest historical sources. John Dickson attempts to present Jesus in such a way that is strictly historical, without fogging him with skepticism or religiosity. Using biblical and extrabiblical resources, Dickson contends that Jesus is utterly unique and cannot be neatly fit into one categorical box; he is Teacher, Healer, Christ, Judge, Friend, Savior, and much more. Who was Jesus? Dickson attempts to tell his story.
