Leave a comment

Childs, H. (2000). The Myth of the Historical Jesus and the Evolution of Consciousness. Atlanta, GA: Society of Biblical Literature.

In this published dissertation Childs examines the psychological dynamics of the images of Jesus emerging from the contemporary “Third Quest for the Historical Jesus,” especially the phenomenon of projection. Using the examples of John Dominic Crossan and C. G. Jung, Childs outlines what the implications of projection may be for hermeneutics.
