Albert Schweitzer on Jesus

“There is nothing more negative than the result of the critical study of the Life of Jesus. The Jesus of Nazareth who came forward publicly as the Messiah, who preached the ethic of the Kingdom of God, who founded the Kingdom of Heaven upon earth and died to give His work its final consecration never had any existence.”

From Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965, Nobel Prize 1952), Ph.D, Christian theologian and Dean of the Theological College of Saint Thomas at the University of Strasburg; The Quest of the Historical Jesus: First Complete Edition, translated by W. Montgomery et al., edited by John Bowden (Minneapolis: Fortress Press, 2001), page 478.
