Book Synopsis
Most of what we know of the life of Jesus comes to us from four Gospels in the New Testament, specifically, the Synoptic Gospels of Mark, Matthew, and Luke. These books present a more human, historical view of Jesus. The Gospel of John, much different, provides the view of a divine Jesus. These four Gospels are unique endeavors regarding Jesus' social situations, his loved ones, and his reactions to stress.

In this study I looked at Jesus' behavior through the Synoptic Gospels, and analyzed Jesus' behavior against the field of criminology. My hope is that we derive more of Jesus' motivation and social situation than what one typically accepts. This is but one view, under a small lens, situating theology of Christianity — upon the back of Jesus' behavior for contemporary discourse.
