Strange theories about Jesus seem to ooze from our culture with increasing regularity. Ben Witherington, one of the top Jesus scholars, will have none of it. There were no secret Gnostic teachings in the first century. With leading scholars and popular purveyors of bad history in his crosshairs, Witherington reveals what we can--and cannot--claim to know about the real Jesus. The Bible, not outside sources, is still the most trustworthy historical record we have today.

Utilizing a fresh "personality profile" approach, Witherington highlights core Christian claims by investigating the major figures in Jesus's inner circle of followers: Mary the mother of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Thomas, Peter, James the brother of Jesus, Paul, and the mysterious "beloved disciple." In each chapter Witherington satisfies our curiosities and answers the full range of questions about these key figures and what each of them can teach us about the historical Jesus. "What Have They Done with Jesus?" is a vigorous defense of traditional Christianity that offers a compelling portrait of Jesus's core message according to those who knew him best.

Ben Witherington

"Admirably learned, shrewdly argued, and thoroughly readable - exactly what we have come to expect from Ben Witherington!"--Philip Jenkins, Professor of History and Religious Studies, Pennsylvania State University
