Product Description

Building upon and correcting the work of Joachim Jeremias, Thompson surveys the use of "Father" as an image for God in Old Testament and Second Temple Judaism, Jesus, the Synoptics, Paul and John. Thompson argues that, rather than rooting the image of God in a debate about gender, the image of "Father" really identifies an "ancestor" who grants an "inheritance."

Publisher's Description

Marianne Thompson surveys the portrayal of God as Father in the Old Testament and Second Temple Judaism, in the ministry of Jesus, in the Synoptic Gospels, and in the writings of Paul and John. Thompson argues that, rather than rooting the image of God in a debate about gender, "Father" terminology really identifies an ancestor who grants inheritance.
