List of books about Jesus

Jesus Christ Pantocrator - ancient mosaic from Hagia Sophia

This is a bibliography of works with information or interpretations of the life and teachings of Jesus. The list is grouped by date, and sorted within each group (except for the very earliest works) alphabetically by name of author.

Jesus of Nazareth (; 7–2 BC/BCE to 30–36 AD/CE), commonly referred to as Jesus Christ or simply as Jesus or Christ, is the central figure of Christianity. Most Christian denominations venerate him as God the Son incarnated and believe that he rose from the dead after being crucified.[1][2] The principal sources of information regarding Jesus are the four canonical gospels.[3]
