Product Description

Has the Christian Bible bound believers to a narrow and mistaken notion of Jesus? Should we listen to other gospels, other sayings of Jesus, that enlarge and correct a mistaken story of Jesus? Is the real Jesus entangled in a web of the church's Scripture, awaiting liberation from our childhood faith so he might speak to our pluralistic world? To start to answer these questions we need to know what story Jesus claimed for himself. Christopher Wright is convinced that Jesus' own story is rooted in the story of Israel. Throughout his life Jesus lived by the script of Israel. Only as we come to understand Jesus as a man with a story - an Old Testament story - will we come to know who Jesus really is. To change that narrative is to deface our only reliable portrait of Jesus. Here is a book that traces out the face of Christ in the textual tapestry of the Old Testament. But it also outlines the pattern of God's designs for Israel as it is lived out in the story of Jesus.

Publisher's Description

We cannot know Jesus without knowing his story. Today the debate over who Jesus is rages on. Has the Bible bound Christians to a narrow and mistaken notion of Jesus? Should we listen to other gospels, other sayings of Jesus, that enlarge and correct a mistaken story? Is the real Jesus entangled in a web of the church's Scripture, awaiting liberation from our childhood faith so he might speak to our contemporary pluralistic world? To answer these questions we need to know what story Jesus claimed for himself. Christopher Wright is convinced that Jesus' own story is rooted in the story of Israel. In this book he traces the life of Christ as it is illuminated by the Old Testament. And he describes God's design for Israel as it is fulfilled in the story of Jesus.
