Jesus and the Gospels, Third Edition

by Craig L. Blomberg

In Jesus and the Gospels, New Testament scholar Craig Blomberg immerses the reader in the historical and cultural world of Gospel narratives for them to better understand and appreciate their focal point: Jesus of Nazareth.


All of Scripture testifies to the person of Jesus, yet the Gospels offer a face-to-face encounter.

This newly revised third edition of Jesus and the Gospels prepares readers for an in-depth exploration of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Esteemed New Testament scholar Craig Blomberg considers the Gospels’ historical context while examining fresh scholarship, critical methods, and contemporary applications for today. Along with updated introductions, maps, and diagrams, Blomberg’s linguistic, historical, and theological approach delivers a deep investigation into the Gospels for professors, students, and pastors alike.
