Jesus in Selbstzeugnissen und Bilddokumenten (1968) is a book by David Flusser.


One of the first scholarly treatments of Jesus as a Jew within Judaism. According to Flusser, "Jesus, or at least his message, was on the periphery of the Essenes, though he stops short of identifying Jesus with them. A central point of the proclamation was the imminent coming of the kingdom of God, in which the revaluation of all values, not only the social dimension, is prominent... Jesus understood himself—after initial hesitation—as Son of Man within the meaning of an end-time judge" (Gerhard Bodendorfer, Jewish Voices about Jesus).
