Jose Antonio Pagola

 

José Antonio Pagola was born in Spain in 1937. He completed his theological studies in 1962 at the Pontifical University in Rome and his studies in Sacred Scripture at the Papal Biblical Institute in Rome in 1966. He also studied biblical sciences at the École Biblique in Jerusalem. Pagola is a professor at St. Sebastian Seminary and at the Faculty of Theology of Northern Spain.

Pagola reconstructs the historical Jesus with a scholarly exegetical and theological approach. He addresses basic questions about who Jesus was; how he understood his life; what was the originality of his message; how the vision of the Kingdom of God centered his life; and why he was executed and who intervened in the process. His Books present a lively and passionate narrative of Jesus of Nazareth within the milieu of the first century, locating him in his social, economical, political and religious contexts based on current and accepted research. He also analyzes the perspectives and conclusions of the most important scholars in this research and presents a profound and extensive scholarly theological reflection about Jesus.
“An extraordinary work of scholarship”.
Roberto Goizueta, Boston College, Former President of the Catholic Theological Society of America.
“One of Pagola’s most controversial stances is that Jesus never described his death in theological terms and did not understand it as a sacrificial atonement for the sins of humanity. Jesus: An Historical Approximation may frustrate conservatives, who fault Pagola for departing from traditional formulas of faith, as well as liberals, who wonder how a follower of Jesus can analyze the historical sources objectively.”
Darrell Turner, National Catholic Reporter.
