Rather, he encountered the risen Jesus in the interval between 30 and 50 CE
through a revelation, and thereby accepted a divine call to bring the gospel of
Jesus Messiah to the non-Jewish world (Gal. 1:16). That twenty-year interval
between Jesus and Paul—if it should be called an interval—was one of ferment
and fervor among the groups of believers in Jesus. They were living in
anticipation of the kingdom of God as announced by Jesus prior to his crucifixion,

formation of Christianity was largely due to the kerygma about Jesus, the
Promised One of Israel. 2.5.1. The Jewish Jesus before Christianity The
complexity of the world of Jesus offers a fundamental orientation to the self-
understanding of Christianity in ...

62 Nolan, Biblical Spirituality, 22. 63 See Nolan, Jesus before Christianity, 137;
Jesus before Christianity 2, 10—19. 64 See the argument followed in footnote 53.
More importantly here, though, one might critique Nolan's optimism at being able
to find (the real thoughts of) the real Jesus behind the New Testament texts. The
different waves of research into the historical Jesus have borne many results, but
none definitive. All researchers tend to find their own Jesus (by now a well-known

Jesus' earthly life only. Because clearly there was a movement of Jesus' followers
before the crucifixion. As Albert Nolan put it, there was a “Jesus before
Christianity”. Later people would speak of Jesus' death and its importance for the
world. They would call him the crucified and risen Lord. But even if Jesus could
