Amid competing portrayals of the 'cynic Jesus,' the 'peasant Jesus,' and the 'apocalyptic Jesus,' the 'political Jesus' remains a marginal figure. Oakman argues that advances in our understanding of the political economy of Roman Galilee warrant a revival of Reimarus's understanding of Jesus as an instigator of revolutionary change.
