Publisher's Description

Since classical times, depictions of the divine have been painted with the colors of divine power. Not surprisingly, power language became a central part of the New Testament's understanding of God and human relationships. In Power, Service, Humility, biblical scholar Reinhard Feldmeier reads across the New Testament canon--the Gospels, Pauline epistles, and Revelation of John--to distinguish two ways in which power works. Feldmeier's chief claim is that worldly power, the kind Satan offers Christ, is a far different kind of power than what God grants Jesus in the resurrection. Further, Feldmeier demonstrates the antithetical link between worldly power and the power present in Christ-like service and humility. As Feldmeier discovers, the differences between sacred and secular power have dramatic implications for how humans handle power within the church. Power, Service, Humility provokes thoughtful considerations of both human and divine relationships with power and power's holy place within the Christian faith.
