John Dominic Crossan

Crossan [Historical Jesus] (228) suggests that disagreements about the nature of Jesus may underlie some of the conflict between Paul and the Corinthian church, and that they can also be seen in several clusters of the Jesus tradition:

Jesus Seminar

While [The Five Gospels] notes the parallels in GJohn and GEger, only Thom 52:2 was considered at a session of the Seminar. The commentary (p. 503) suggests that the reference to the "twenty-four prophets" reflects point in the tradition when the Hebrew Scriptures were increasingly disparaged by Christians moving away from their Jewish roots. Unlike Jesus, "the Living One," the Jewish Scriptures were the teachings of "the dead."

Gerd Luedemann

Luedemann [Jesus] (616] considers the saying attributed to Jesus to be inauthentic "since in reality the historical Jesus saw a connection between himself and the Old Testament prophets."

John P. Meier

Meier does not consider this saying in the first 3 volumes of [A Marginal Jew].
