New Testament scholar James D. G. Dunn has published his research on Christian origins in numerous commentaries, books, and essays. In this small, straightforward book designed especially for a lay audience, Dunn focuses his fifty-plus years of scholarship on elucidating the New Testament witness to Jesus, from Matthew to Revelation. Dunn’s Jesus according to the New Testament constantly points back to the wonder of those first witnesses and greatly enriches our understanding of Jesus.

Jesus according to the New Testament comprises dozens of insights for professors, a bag full of learning opportunities for students, and a multitude of suggestions for preachers and pastors. Dunn’s top-level, judicious scholarship shines forth on each page. Too often we get lost in battles about theological topics or historical connections and miss the main point. Dunn keeps us focused on the heart of the gospel and the New Testament—the Lord Jesus.”
Anthony Le Donne
— author of Historical Jesus: What Can We Know and How Can We Know It?
“James Dunn has written the perfect introduction to the New Testament’s central theme. This engaging treatment of Jesus—and the earliest ideas about Jesus—touches every necessary stepping-stone along the path of a New Testament survey. Jesus According to the New Testament is a delight from start to finish.”

"Brilliant. . . . For all who want to keep going deeper in the knowledge of Jesus: Read this book. Gather a study group in your church. It’s the best."
Journal for the Study of the New Testament
“This is an excellent book. First, its clarity, simplicity and profundity should push it immediately to ‘must-read’ booklists for theological students as a solid foundation for deeper investigation. Second, it could easily be used as a book that supports parish Bible studies. But its greatest asset is as a distillation of the results of thorough biblical scholarship in a form accessible to non-specialists and a model for specialists who are interested in ‘public impact.’”
Religious Studies Review
“This is an eminently readable and characteristically insightful volume, presenting for the non-specialist a critical reading of the NT’s account of Jesus that is both accessible and thought-provoking.”
