Abstract

The article discusses Paul Verhoeven’s reconstruction of the historical Jesus in his book ‘Jezus van Nazareth’ (2008). It shows that Verhoeven’s portrait of Jesus as a ‘last minute revolutionary’ is unconvincing due to major methodological shortcomings, regarding the critical evaluation of the sources, the neglect of form-critical insights, the absence of coherent methodology. The article concludes by summing up differences between a historical and a cinematic approach to Jesus.
