Abstract

Fatherless in Galilee: An autobiographical reflection. The article is a academic, reworked version of a public speech in which the author explains his position expressed in his book Fatherless in Galilee: Jesus as Child of God, published in 2001 and which has created ecclesiastical dispute with regard to confessional affirmations about the virginal conception of Jesus, his resurrection from the dead and his ascension to heaven. The article discusses the circumstances which led to the writing of the book, the exegetical and theological insights which influenced the author and the continuing relevance of historical Jesus research. The article is written in the genre of autobiographical biblical criticism.
