Speaking for myself, although I have written a book with the title Jesus of Nazareth: Millenarian Prophet, I am no millenarian prophet; and a Jesus without eschatological error would certainly make my life easier. I might, for instance, be able to tell some of my relatives, without them shuddering aghast, what I really do for a living. (p. 133)
This includes other Biblical scholars. In fact, Allison also quotes John Dominic Crossan, a liberal Christian scholar, as saying, “Having said that Jesus and all other millenarian prophets were wrong (so far), you could hardly claim that God raised Jesus from the dead to prove he alone was transcendentally wrong” (p. 126, quoting p. 55 of the book Allison did with Crossan and some other scholars).
