Jesus and Israel's Traditions of Judgement and Restoration examines the eschatology of Jesus by evaluating his appropriation of sacred traditions related to Israel's restoration. It addresses the way in which Jesus' future expectations impinged upon his understanding of key features of Jewish society. Scholars have long debated the degree to which Jesus' eschatology can be said to have been realized. This 2002 book considers Jesus' expectations regarding key constitutional features of the eschaton: the shape of the people of God, purity, Land and Temple. Bryan shows that Jesus' anticipation of coming national judgement led him to use Israel's sacred traditions in ways that differed significantly from their use by his contemporaries. This did not lead Jesus to the conviction that Israel's restoration had been delayed. Instead he employed Israel's traditions to support a different understanding of restoration and a belief that the time of restoration had arrived.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This learned monograph demands careful reading by specialists and students of current, historical Jesus research.' Themelios
'The learning and acuteness of the overall treatment highly commends this monograph. Not without justification the author more than once repeats the clause 'what has not received due attention'. Biblica
"Bryan's monograph is thought-provoking and stimulating. It certainly moves us one step closer to the solution of major questions which still remain in historical Jesus research." Trinity Journal
"...full of good analysis and helpful information relating to the work and mission of Jesus. ...[a] clearly written and well organized work. Those who are Jesus scholars or who would like a fresh look at the question of the restoration of Israel will want to give it careful attention." Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
"...B. offers some intriguing analysis....his argument deserves a hearing." The Catholic Biblical Quarterly
"a superb study...marked by clarity, logic, and fresh exegesis of the relevant materials." The Westminster Theological Journal
