Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0944344429, Paperback)Who was John the Baptist? What was the relationship of Jesus to John? What message did John proclaim? Did Jesus repeat John's message or did he devise one of his own? These and other questions concerning the historical John the Baptist and Jesus are answered in this provocative and lucid book.
The Jesus Seminar has considered all the historical evidence related to John the Baptist found in the gospels, Josephus, the documents known as the Pseudo-Clementines, and the traces of the Baptist tradition preserved in Mandaeism, a baptizing sect that continues to exist in southern Iraq and neighboring Iran. This book contains a summary of the deliberations and votes of the Seminar, together with a concise sketch of the historical figure of John the Baptist.
