Founder of the world’s largest religion and subject of intense historical scrutiny, Jesus of Nazareth is not a tidy monolithic character, but a complex, multi-layered and sometimes contradictory figure. In his book A Doubter’s Guide to Jesus, Australian scholar John Dickson offers a compelling introduction to Jesus as he is portrayed in the earliest historical sources. In conversation with ABC’s Johanna Nicholson, he explores the ongoing investigation into the life and significance of Jesus for believers and doubters alike.
