The remainder of the chapter is spent on the scholars that believe Jesus actually saw himself as the Jewish Messiah. Witherington tackles a lot in this volume on the Third Quest for the Historical Jesus, and for the most part, keeps a consistent, scholarly tone throughout the book.

4 The Quest of the Historical Jesus Dr. Schweitzer's book does not pretend to be an impartial survey.
