English summary: The fifth volume of Martin Hengel's Selected Writings contains 27 studies which concern Jesus as a person, his works and the four Gospels. These studies were written over a period of 55 years. They focus on the historical Jesus and also deal with the trends in the Gospels and the circumstances surrounding their origins. The studies evolved primarily from lectures given by the author and thus reflect a part of his scholarly development, his arguments and his interests. At the same time they show that the way he deals with philology and history, the question concerning the truth of the Gospel and his opinions of contemporary issues cannot be separated from the author's theological existence, and that it is this interaction which makes his exegetical and theological work so productive. German description: Der funfte Band der Kleinen Schriften von Martin Hengel enthalt in chronologischer Reihenfolge ihrer Entstehung 27 Studien, die die Person und das Wirken Jesu und die vier Evangelien betreffen. Samtliche Beitrage sind durchgesehen und einzelne auch teilweise erganzt. Entstanden sind sie in einem Zeitraum von 45 Jahren. Sie behandeln sowohl besondere, oft umstrittene Texte als auch ubergreifende Probleme und konzentrieren sich dabei auf Jesus selbst, fragen aber auch nach der Tendenz der Evangelien und den Umstanden ihrer Entstehung. Die ersten beiden Untersuchungen entstanden zu einer Zeit, als der Autor noch nicht wusste, ob er aus den opera aliena der Wirtschaft in die wissenschaftliche Theologie zuruckkehren konnte. Dem dritten Beitrag liegt die Probevorlesung bei der Habilitation im Januar 1967 zugrunde, der vierte enthalt die Tubinger Antrittsvorlesung im Mai desselben Jahres, der achte geht auf die Antrittsvorlesung in Erlangen im Mai 1973 zuruck. Diese Studien spiegeln so auch ein Stuck der wissenschaftlichen Entwicklung des Autors, seiner Auseinandersetzungen und Interessen wider, und sie zeigen zugleich, dass strenge philologische und historische Arbeit, die Frage nach der Wahrheit des Evangeliums und die Stellungnahme zu brennenden Zeitfragen sich von der etheologischen Existenz' des Verfassers nicht trennen lassen, sondern stets in einem inneren Bezug zu dieser stehen. Nur durch diese enge Verbindung wird exegetische und theologische Arbeit in gegenseitiger Wechselwirkung fruchtbar.

This volume explores nearly every facet of Jesus research -- from eyewitness criteria to the reliability of memory, from archaeology to psychobiography, from oral traditions to literary sources, and from narrative criticism to Gospel criticism. Bringing together a wide variety of topics and perspectives in one volume, this ambitious collaborative enterprise casts light on important debates and encourages creative links between ideas new and old. This distinguished collection of articles by internationally renowned Jewish and Christian scholars originates with the Princeton-Prague Symposium on Jesus Research. It summarizes the significant advances in understanding Jesus that scholars have made in recent years, chiefly through the development of diverse methodologies. Even readers who are already knowledgeable in the field will discover unique angles from well-known New Testament scholars, and all will be brought up to speed on the current state-of-play within Jesus studies.

The sudden disappearance of the twelve apostles from the pages of post-Easter Christian history is in B.H. Streeter's judgment 'one of the great mysteries of history'. The purpose of this publication is to shed some new light on this mystery and to examine, on the basis of the available New Testament evidence, the claim that the earthly Jesus himself had appointed the twelve. The book opens (Part I) with a redaction-critical inquiry into those New Testament writings which advance this claim, touching on both the origin and setting of the source materials used by the evangelists to support it. The question of how and why firmly established traditions are still suggestive enough to inspire visions entailing their reformulation on new levels of meaning is treated in this part. The book goes on (Part II) to discuss the role played by the symbolic number twelve in Hellenistic and Jewish milieux, concluding with the description of the substance and power added to early Christianity by the use of this prestigious number. The publication will be of benefit mostly to specialists and graduate students interested in deriving historical knowledge from religious materials.
