Scripting Jesus: The Gospels in Rewrite

By L. Michael White

HarperOne, 2010. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. From the book, ""In ""Scripting Jesus,"" famed scholar of early Christianity L. Michael White challenges us to read the gospels as they were originally intended - as performed stories of faith rather than factual histories. White demonstrates that each of the four gospel writers had a specific audience in mind and a specific theological agenda to push, and consequently wrote and rewrote their lives of Jesus accordingly - in effect, ""scripting"" Jesus to get a particular point across and to achieve the desired audience reaction. The gospel stories have shaped the beliefs of almost two and a half billion Christian. But the gospel writers were not reporters - rather, they were dramatists, and the stories they told publicly about Jesus were edited and reedited for the greatest effect. Understanding how these first-century Christians wanted to present Jesus offers us a way to make sense of the sometimes conflicting stories in the gospels.""
