Title: Reconsidering the Quest Boundaries in Response to N.T. Wright
Subtitle: Schillebeeckx's Jesus as Dawning Third Quest?
Author(s): PRUSAK, Bernard P.
Journal: Louvain Studies
Volume: 32 Issue: 1-2 Date: 2007
The criteria for establishing the boundaries between the ‘quests’ for the historical Jesus, and for assigning scholars to a particular quest, involve judgment calls that, in some cases, are open to critical reconsideration. This comparative analysis of Sanders, Schillebeeckx, and Wright, on an issue identified as central for the Third Quest – why Jesus was put to death – will show the transitional frontier overlapping the borders of the New Quest and the Third Quest and the need for more precision in judgments about fellow scholars.
