Jesus of Nazareth


Jesus of Nazareth: From the Baptism in the Jordan to the Transfiguration is the first of a series of books on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, written by Pope Benedict XVI, published in three volumes. It was published by Doubleday in 2007. In the book's introduction, the pope explicitly states that the treatise is in "no way an exercise of the magisterium," but rather an "expression of his personal search for the face of the Lord." The ten chapters cover the bulk of Jesus' public ministry, encompassing subjects and events such as Christ's baptism at the hands of John the Baptist, the Sermon on the Mount, the meaning of the parables, the Calling of the Twelve, the Confession of Peter, and the Transfiguration. Two other volumes were published by Benedict on Jesus: they are called Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week (2011) and Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives (2012).
