Product 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 revised and updated 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.

This second edition includes a new chapter on the divinity of Christ as it relates to the Old Testament, as well as the addition of new questions and exercises at the end of each chapter. Accessible for a popular readership, this book is also useful in contexts of theological education.

    This is a book you have to read slowly and then reread again. This author is very intelligent and has great insight. I'm only 1/3 way through but am enjoying it.
