My intent in what follows is to point to the correspondences I see, without necessarily imputing specific motivations to individual authors, unless the evidence seems to allow it. Saving our Political Souls The most obvious undercurrent in contemporary historical Jesus scholarship and the 'controversy' over a Jewish Jesus is political in nature. A great many of the works that emphasize the 'Jewish Jesus', and especially that criticize scholars such as Crossan or Mack for producing an allegedly 'non-Jewish' Jesus, make explicit reference to anti-Semitism, and to the great anti-Semitic event of the twentieth century, the Shoah.
23 conceptual potential for undergirding certain moral and theological convictions is celebrated, but its potential as a destabilizing, threatening and subversive discourse that clears room for alternative social practices is conspicuously ignored. This too might suggest, no less, that Bultmann's apocalyptic Jesus, or Kasemann's Jesus-in-whom-the-kingdom-hadbroken-through, or Hengel's eschatological charismatic Jesus, the current incarnations of the apocalyptic Jesus, are still busy at work, functioning not as one unknown, but as one well known, and quite congenial with contemporary christological and theological beliefs.
These documents do have a huge impact on contemporary attitudes, precisely because they are canonical. 25 The obvious corollary here is that, ultimately, academic historical conclusions, if they cannot disprove Christian doctrine, cannot improve it either. We may have shifts among many Christians in their understanding of the historical development of their faith, but I would submit that these shifts are a function of theological changes imposing themselves on sacred history; not of an assimilation of academic history to such a point that basic theological beliefs are actually altered.
