Vermes in Argument and Form

Vermes argues that Jesus was a healer within the context of a Charismatic Judaism. In terms of content, this is important because the authors embeds Jesus within another line of Jewish healers. In terms of form, Vermes weaves in and out of primary source material and his own analysis in order to show how closely the portrait of Jesus as healer conforms with older Jewish ideas of healers.
