Product Description

* How did monotheistic Jews of the early church come to see Jesus as a part of the unique identity of Israel's God? Offering an alternative to "functional" and "ontic" Christology, Bauckham convincingly argues that the divine identity---who God truly is---can be witnessed in Jesus' humiliation, suffering, death, and resurrection. (Updated edition of God Crucified.) 336 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.

Editorial Reviews

N. T. Wright
"The question of whether the Gospels are based on eyewitness accounts has long been controversial. Richard Bauckham, in a characteristic tour de force, draws on his unparalleled knowledge of the world of the first Christians to argue not only that the Gospels do indeed contain eyewitness testimony but that their first readers would certainly have recognized them as such. This book is a remarkable piece of detective work, resulting in a fresh and vivid approach to dozens, perhaps hundreds, of well-known problems and passages."

James D. G. Dunn
"Another blockbuster from the productive pen of Richard Bauckham. . . Not to be missed!"

Graham Stanton
"Shakes the foundations of a century of scholarly study of the Gospels. There are surprises on every page. A wealth of new insights will provoke lively discussion for a long time to come. Readers at all levels will be grateful for Bauckham's detective work that uncovers clues missed by so many."

Times Literary Supplement
"Bauckham's careful and eloquent presentation of his argument, supported not just by careful scholarship but by admirable common sense, deserves earnest consideration by all."

Choice
"It will be hard to take seriously future works on the origin of the Gospels that have not interacted with Bauckham. . . Recommended."

Martin Hengel
"Fascinating! . . . This book ought to be read by all theologians and historians working in the field of early Christianity. Further, Bauckham's convincing historical method and broad learning will also help pastors and students to overcome widespread modern Jesus fantasies."
