Considering the rabbinic writers and the early
fathers, who have used, generally in a free way, the sayings of Jesus drawn
from the Gospels and/or oral tradition, this book examines the apologists and
the extracanonical writers, whose writings constitute a well-defined literary
genre and witness a progressively more bookish use of the sayings of Jesus.
This book understands the extracanonical documents in early Judaism as a
prerequisite for understanding the appearances of Jesus.
