Abstract This essay discusses an evangelical approach to historical-Jesus studies. It summarizes the three quests, while noting the strength of third quest approaches being firmly rooted in Second Temple background. It briefly discusses the rules used in such study, and notes the benefits and limits of a method rooted in corroboration. It defends the value of having mediated presentations of Jesus. It also discusses issues such as the claim that evangelicals are maximalists or historical positivists when it comes to such study. The essay concludes by making the case for the core authenticity of the scene of Peter's Confession at Caesarea Philippi, including discussion of the issue of the messianic secret.
