The article deals with the mission of Jesus and its relation to the missionary activity of the early church. There are serious methodological issues to be addressed when speaking about Jesus, especially relating to the authenticity or non-authenticity of Gospel material, hermeneutical positions concerning the mission of Jesus, etc. A minimalist position (such as that of Bultmann and Schweitzer) on questions relating to the authenticity of Gospel material led to the distancing of Jesus from the early church and its activities.
