On February 9-10, 1996, six internationally known Jesus scholars participated in the first national symposium to commemorate the 2000th anniversary of the birth of Jesus. Talking about the historical, religious, and cultural significance of Jesus, these scholars drew mass media attention and inspired a phenomenally successful follow-up discussion group on the Internet. Jesus at 2000 makes the symposium available to those seeking an introduction to the controversial historical study of Jesus and Christian origins and to those wishing to examine the intricacies of this New Testament scholarship more carefully.In addition to the papers presented by Marcus J. Borg, John Dominic Crossan, Alan F. Segal, Harvey Cox, Karen Jo Torjesen, and Huston Smith, this book includes questions from the symposium as well as a concluding chapter that introduces the historical study of Jesus and Christian origins to the newly curious. Readers will appreciate the wide range of perspectives offered, from historical Jesus scholarship to Jewish studies, early Christian history, world religions, and religion and culture. Written for a general audience, the book will be useful in both academic and church settings for those wanting to know what the academy is saying about Jesus.
Marcus J. Borg is Hundere Distinguished Professor of Religion and Culture in the Philosophy Department at Oregon State University. He is the author of seven books, including the best-selling Jesus: A New Vision (1987) and Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time (1994).

From Our Editors

It's often forgotten as the new millennium draws near, that the year 2000 marks a very special birthday. It will be the 2,000th birthday of Jesus of Nazareth, more or less, and the essays of six internationally known Jesus scholars are now available in Jesus at 2000 to commemorate the occasion. The works of these eminent scholars make an excellent introduction to the study of Christian origins for those wishing to examine the intricacies of New Testament scholarship.
