This page is part of the Jesus Database project.
In some cases, and especially when reporting the voting outcomes of the Jesus Seminar, you will find text represented by one of four different colors:
PINK indicates qualified support for the propositiion
question or proposition may often be a "simple" judgment on whether a
specific saying or act should be included in the database of historical
Jesus materials. However, sometimes the question is phrased in negative
terms so that a RED vote indicates dissent from historicity and support
for the proposition that such and such an event did not take place,
while a BLACK vote would have the opposite meaning.
Use of colors in the pages of the JESUSdatabase is intended as a shorthand way to express the historical and theological judgments reported by Fellows of the Jesus Seminar.
