A look at the work of John Dominic Crossan, known for his work in interpreting Jesus using cross-cultural methods. This volume looks at the work of John Dominic Crossan. Crossan is known for his work in interpreting Jesus using cross-cultural methods. He understands Jesus to be a cynic-like sage who counter-culturally works for a 'brokerless kingdom' in which there is 'open commensality' among those who follow Jesus' teachings. He is known for demonstrating the importance on incorporating the use of non-canonical sources in one's reconstruction of Jesus. Some of his historical-Jesus works include "Four Other Gospels" (1985), "The Cross that Spoke" (1988), "The Historical Jesus: The Life of a Mediterranean Jewish Peasant" (1991), "Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography" (1994), "Excavating Jesus: Beneath the Stones, Behind the Texts" (2001; co-authored with Jonathan Reed), and most recently, "God and Empire: Jesus against Rome, Then and Now" (2007). Formerly the "Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement", a book series that explores the many aspects of New Testament study including historical perspectives, social-scientific and literary theory, and theological, cultural and contextual approaches. "The Early Christianity in Context" series, a part of "JSNTS", examines the birth and development of early Christianity up to the end of the third century CE. The series places Christianity in its social, cultural, political and economic context. "European Seminar on Christian Origins" and "Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus Supplement" are also part of "JSNTS".
