Jesus was a street preacher who taught through story and aphorism. Antedating the Gospels, these 105 sayings were recorded by his followers during and shortly after his lifetime. Through the immediacy of direct quotation, Guy Davenport and Benjamin Urrutia’s bold translation shakes our preconceptions, reintroducing us to the living teacher whose powerful words ring anew.

GUY DAVENPORT received an award for fiction from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters in 1981, a MacArthur Fellowship in 1992, and the Harold Morton Landon Translation Award from the Academy of American Poets for Seven Greeks in 1996. Author of more than a dozen books, he lives in Lexington, Kentucky.

BENJAMIN URRUTIA was born in Ecuador and is an author and a scholar.
