Editorial Review

One question remaining for New Testament scholars at the end of the 19th century was whether the activity of Jesus of Nazareth was chiefly ethical or eschatological.  This volume of Johannes Weiss with its accent on Jesus' idea of the Kingdom as an eschatological entity may not have answered the question for all time, but it did shape scholarship all the way from Albert Schweitzer to Ernst Kasemann, from the first to the second "quest of the historical Jesus."  It was the smooth stone in the forehead of those Goliaths who had reduced eschatology to a matter of form or mythology.  For this reason it deserves reading.  And it may yet bring down a generation with far fewer titans than a C. H. Dodd or a Rudolf Bultmann.

Roy A. Harrisville
Professor Emeritus of New Testament
Luther Seminary, St. Paul

An essential element in the foundation for twentieth-century research on the teaching of Jesus, this landmark volume cannot be overlooked by anyone wishing maturely to assess the work of scholars from Albert Schweitzer to the members of the Jesus Seminar.
