The anatomy of a discourse: On "eschatology" as a category for explaining Christian origins RON CAMERON For biblical scholars, the twentieth century began six years after the fact, with Albert Schweitzer's explication of the thesis that the origins of Christianity could be explained if placed within the theological context of The Quest of the Historical Jesus: When, at some future day, our period of civilisation shall lie, closed and completed, before the eyes of later generations, German theology will stand out as a great, a unique phenomenon in the mental and spiritual life of our time. For nowhere save in the German temperament can there be found in the same perfection the living complex of conditions and factors - of philosophic thought, critical acumen, historical insight, and religious feeling - without which no deep theology is possible. And the greatest achievement of German theology is the critical investigation of the life of Jesus. What it has accomplished here has laid down the conditions and determined the course of the religious thinking of the future.... It is [therefore] only at first sight that the absolute indifference of early Christianity towards the life of the historical Jesus is disconcerting. (Schweitzer
