The Complete Jesus is the first compilation of the sayings and teachings attributed to Jesus of Nazareth from all ancient documents through the fifth century, including the New Testament, the Christian Gnostic writings, and the New Testament Apocrypha. Only the voice of Jesus is heard in these pages, and the reader will be drawn from one quotation to the next, encountering utterances that range from the familiar and comforting to the unexpected and startling. Ricky Alan Mayotte has taken the words of Jesus from the gospels in which they originally appeared and organized them into nine chapters by category, among them Parable, Commandments, Hymns and Prayers, and Warnings and Admonitions. His approach allows the reader a unique opportunity to see and compare the wide range of Jesus's sayings and teachings and lends to the book a readability that makes it an adventure to explore. Each chapter begins with the most familiar sayings and teachings from the canonical gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and then progresses to the more elusive, often enigmatic attributions found in the Apocryphal and Gnostic texts. In some of these writings, Jesus appears as a far more unusual figure than he is generally imagined. While scholars vigorously disagree about which of Jesus's recorded sayings are actually based on his spoken words, The Complete Jesus does not join in this debate. By offering in this simple, unadorned way all of the known words that the earliest Christians believed Jesus to have said, the book is both revealing to read and a useful reference work. Considered together, these sayings of Jesus give us a new and more complex portrait of the man, the prophet, and the teacher.
