Sometimes it seems that every month there is a new book on Jesus in Barnes & Noble. In fact the search for the historical Jesus amongst scholars has been going on for over 150 years with little agreement to show for the effort. This theology day presentation will explore the history of the search for the elusive Jesus of history followed by a provocative suggestion: the search for the historical Jesus makes no sense for Catholics. Instead we should focus on the Jesus presented to us in the Gospels, that is, the real Jesus.
