Product Description

Grasp a deeper understanding for the astonishing providence of God that prepared the way for the incarnation and the most unfathomable expression of love in history.

Why did God become human? Anselm asked this question and it is doubtless that innumerable believers pondered similar questions. Graham Cole stimulating study The God Who Became Human begins by examining God's purpose in human creation and why the creature was made as temple for the divine image. He then traces the unfolding of this theme as it leads to salvation in Israel's history.

Theophanic language takes center stage throughout the study-as Scripture presents God as a person with human-like capabilities of speech, feeling, and at times seemingly embodied. He then explores Israel's messianic hope, and then the testimony of the New Testament and its relationship to the Old Testament testimony. Cole then answers Anselm's question, finding numerous answers in the New Testament.

Publisher's Description

  • Preaching's Preacher's Guide to the Best Bible Reference for 2014 (Theology)
Seeking an answer to Anselm's timeless question, "Why did God become man?" Graham Cole follows Old Testament themes of preparation, theophany and messianic hope through to the New Testament witness to the divinely foretold event. This New Studies in Biblical Theology volume concludes with a consideration of the theological and existential implications of the incarnation of God. Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.

Editorial Reviews

"Although considerable effort in biblical theology has been devoted to such messianic themes as the Davidic monarch, the priesthood and the temple, relatively little has been devoted to the incarnation. This book by Dr Graham Cole takes steps to fill the need. Undoubtedly more can be said, but it is immensely satisfying to find an able systematician wrestling with the biblical texts . . . not least on a topic as central to the Christian faith as this one."
