Jesus of Nazareth influenced - and continues to influence - the human community more than anybody else. This study describes and analyzes the perceptions and receptions of Jesus as the Messiah/Christ in six continents from the beginning of the Common Era until today. He appears to be present both within and beyond the traditional borders of Christianity. Individuals and peoples represent him and/or misrepresent him in their cyclical and/or linear settings.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The figure of Jesus of Nazareth stands astride world history in a way unequalled by any other historical figure. Prof. Jongeneel provides a fresh and authoritative framework for examining the range of interpretations of Jesus Christ over the past two millennia by the major religious traditions and ideologies." (Prof. Wilbert R. Shenk, Fuller Graduate School of Intercultural Studies, Pasadena, USA)
"This book unfolds history from various religious and ideological perspectives, tracing faith formulations and comparing them with the Christian view of Jesus as the Messiah/Christ. The extensive but precise scholarly content provides excellent reading into religions, philosophy, theology and mission. A commendable resource book for seekers of God." (Prof. Siga Arles, Centre for Contemporary Christianity, Bangalore, India)
"I recommend Jesus Christ in Culture as basic reading in every course in missiology and in the burgeoning field of world Christian studies. I do not know of any book so capable of us understand the Jesus movement and tradition as it looks in the world's many historical perspectives. It should be in every serious theological library (...)." (William R Burrows, New York Theological Seminary, Center for World Christianity For Mission Studies)
