Product Description

New Testament writings offer a vivid account of the events in Jesus' life. But what do we know about his personal understanding of himself and his mission? Rigorous, lucid, and balanced, de Jonge's intriguing study explores what seems certain, probable, and possible concerning the relationship between Jesus' claims and early Christology. 166 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.

Publisher's Description

Working from the belief that there is a basic continuity between the ideas of Jesus and those of his first followers, de Jonge sketches a well-grounded, though tentative, outlille of Jesus' own view of his minion. At all stages de Jonge steers a middle course between skepticism and absolute confidence with regard to the reliability and the usefulness of what we know about Jesus from the early Christian sources. He carefully distinguishes between what seems certain, probable, and possible, and he argues that though we cannot fill in all the details, it is possible to present a picture of what was most characteristic of Jesus.
