Schweitzers view
fixed upon the futuristic view. He suggested that JC was conscious that people were not heeding to the message so forced his own death in order to bring about the Kingdom, However, Schweitzer reconstruction is high arbitrary. very selective
9 of 12
Schweitzer
his use of traditons and ignores 'present' tradition and misinterprets Jewish sources. Believes the NT is all authentic and places too much emphasis on the apocalyptic 'son of man' where OT views him to be a warrior figure.

Dodd
opposed Schweitzer and felt that JC believed the kingdom was meant to be experienced in JC's ministry. "the eschaton has moved from the future to the present, from the sphere of expectation into that of realized experience" In other word the kingdom

Cadbury "Jesus was not a systematic thinker"
he thought JC was probably confused and did not have a clear message himself. "Jesus probably had no definite, unified, conscious purpose" therefore, said different things to different people at different times and when added up together = CONFUSION
