Request for comments …, my cover letter (continued 7)

Thirdly, there is no question that Jesus is described in most of the Gospel texts as a preacher and as a model for Christian preachers.

On the other hand, the gap between Jesus and the disciples is strongly emphasized (sinking Peter).


Paul passes on the words of Jesus, but Jesus is more of a cult hero than the first Christian preacher. Here too, I would urge an opening of perception and the discussion of various models.


Finally, a word on my own behalf: the shortening of my arguments to short and concise theses is due to technical work and does not mean that I would miss the reasons for the theses.


I have already explained some of the arguments in individual studies, and I can explain everything in detail if there is an interest in them. The form of the thesis also has the advantage that the reader can quickly make a judgement about my suggestions for Jesus research.


Please do not hesitate to give me your opinion on the Jesus question.

With kind regards
