Curial cardinal pays tribute to Pope Benedict’s Jesus of Nazareth

Catholic World News - October 30, 2013

Paying tribute to Pope Benedict’s three-volume work Jesus of Nazareth in a L’Osservatore Romano essay, Cardinal Angelo Amato said that developments in archeology, papyrology, and comparative literary study have helped confirm the historical reliability of the New Testament.

The prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints wrote that this interdisciplinary work, as well as a greater attentiveness to the patristic interpretation of Scripture, has helped to counteract the “ideology of suspicion” manifested since the eighteenth century in the “search for the historical Jesus.”
