The Meaning of Jesus: Two Visions (1999) is a book by Marcus J. Borg and Nicholas Thomas Wright.


"Was Jesus born of a virgin? Did he know he was the Messiah? Was he bodily resurrected from the dead? Did he intentionally die to redeem humankind? Was Jesus God? Two leading Jesus scholars with widely divergent views go right to the heart of these questions and others, presenting the opposing visions of Jesus that shape our faith today."--Publisher description.


Published in San Francisco, CA: HarperSanFrancisco, 1999.
