James Crossley’s Assessment of the Scholarship of Geza Vermes

Here.  His conclusion:

crossleyThere is a strong case for Vermes being the most influential historical Jesus scholar of his generation. In some ways he was perhaps even more influential than Sanders whose historical Jesus work and challenge to the anti-Jewish rhetoric in New Testament scholarship owes something to Vermes. Others wrote bigger books but none of them changed the rhetoric of the debate as Vermes’Jesus the Jew did.

With much before.
