Historiography and Hermeneutics in Jesus Studies

Historiography and Hermeneutics in Jesus Studies

This work identifies two distinct methodological approaches in Jesus studies, as represented by the work of two prominent historical Jesus scholars, Dominic Crossan and Ben Meyer. Crossan's work is the apotheosis of a venerable approach centered on "tradition criticism." Meyer offered a critique of this approach in the form of a historiographic "holism." This work brings Meyer's proposals to light in a sharp comparison with the historiographic assumptions he criticized. It goes beyond Meyer, recognizing the full significance of narrativity in historical method.

At least two other investigations of issues in historiography and hermeneutics in Jesus studies have appeared recently.2 Among these there are similarities with the approach I am taking here, which I will address below.
