The Gospel of Jesus


In his new book, The Gospel of Jesus, Ben Witherington III gets behind the canonical Gospels and offers us a historical recreation that reveals the single, chronological story of Jesus’ life. His hope is that we might see Jesus more clearly, love him for dearly, and follow him more nearly—even if for the first time.

This book is for anyone puzzled about how to put the pieces of Jesus’ life together, interested in the social, historical, and theological impact of Jesus, whether Christian or not.

Dr. Witherington joined the Asbury Seminary faculty in 1995. A prolific author, Dr. Witherington has written more than 40 books and six commentaries. He is a John Wesley Fellow for Life, a research fellow at Cambridge University and a member of numerous professional organizations, including the Society of Biblical Literature, Society for the Study of the New Testament and the Institute for Biblical Research. In his leisure time, Dr. Witherington appreciates both music and sports. It is hard to say which sound he prefers: the sophisticated sonance of jazz sensation Pat Metheny or the incessant tomahawk chant of the Atlanta Braves faithful. A graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill, he is a dedicated Tar Heels basketball and football fan. He and his wife, Ann, have two children.
