Book: Jesus and Addiction to Origins

Chapter: 4. Jesus and Addiction to Origins

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.39241


The history of the Christianity’s relationship to and evaluation of Jesus presents us with a useful case study for the place of “history” in Christian discourses about their past. The chapter argues that “history,” as understood in Christian thought, is an ambiguity that is often in an antagonistic tension with the documentary history that can threaten the imaginary artifice of “history.”
