Engaging Brant Pitre’s Jesus and the Last Supper as a Work of History

image of Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus

Although historical Jesus research has recently experienced a state of methodological flux following the ‘demise’ of authenticity and form critical methods, new studies are being published that forge new pathways. Jesus and the Last Supper by Brant Pitre is among the first major comprehensive studies in historical Jesus research to be published in the new era of research. The aim of this review article is to evaluate Jesus and the Last Supper in its capacity as a work of history. In particular, this article considers the future of historical Jesus research by discussing and evaluating Pitre’s methods and arguments in Jesus and the Last Supper in conversation with some of the foundational principles of historiography and the philosophy of history.
