What is the Historical Jesus?

I've finally been able to get to Scot McKnight's book, Jesus and His Death, and the opening chapter on historiography, postmodern and post-postmodern, is superb. I found this little gem of a quote too:

"What do historical Jesus scholars mean when they speak of the historical Jesus? ... the historical Jesus is a narrative representation of the existential facts about Jesus that survive critical scrutiny."
