Jesus and the Zealots. A Study of the Political Factor in Primitive Christianity
New York; (1967)
by Brandon, S.G.F.
New York; (1967): Scribners. First Edition. Octavo. First printing with Scribners A. 413p. index. This is the most important book in presenting issues from Palestinian archaeology and the narratives of the New Testament (W.H.C. Frend). There is much on the rise of the Zealots which has been neglected in other studies of the historical Jesus. While Brandon's scholarship cannot be denied, many will hesitate with his conclusion that Jesus was a revolutionary (though the case made by the Sadducees was exactly that). One of the essential volumes on New Testament issues in light of archaeology and extra-biblical historical sources. A near fine copy bound in black cloth, spine lettering gilt, in near fine unclipped pictorial dust jacket.
