📒Christology In The Making ✍ James D. G. Dunn
📝Christology in the Making Book Synopsis : The New Testament documents cover an intense period of innovation and development in what we now call Christology. Before Jesus, Christology either did not exist, or existed, properly speaking, only in different forms of messianic expectation. At the end of that period, however, an advanced and far-reaching Christology is already in place that does not hesitate to speak of Jesus as God. This excellent study of the origins and early development of Christology by James D. G. Dunn clarifies in rich detail the beginnings of the full Christian belief in Christ as the Son of God and incarnate Word. By employing the exegetical methods of historical context of meaning and conceptuality in transition, Dunn illumines the first-century meaning of key titles and passages within the New Testament that bear directly on the develop-ment of the Christian understanding of Jesus. Chosen by "Christianity Today" as one of the year's Significant Books when it first appeared in 1980, this second edition of "Christology in the Making" contains a new extended foreword that responds to critics of the first edition and updates Dunn's own thinking on the beginnings of Christology since his original work.
📒Christ And The Spirit ✍ Ralph Del Colle
📝Christ and the Spirit Book Synopsis : This is a study of Spirit-Christology--a contemporary theological model of the relationship between Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Del Colle measures this christological model against trinitarian theology and tests its viability. He investigates in particular the development of a Roman Catholic Spirit-Christology, which has arisen from within the modern neo-scholastic theological tradition. Contrary to other interpreters, Del Colle argues that an incarnational christology and a Spirit-Christology are not conflicting but complementary and that this is recognized by the older and deeper tradition. In conclusion, he seeks to demonstrate the productivity of the Spirit-Christological model in reference to three major areas of concern for contemporary systematic theology: cultural pluralism and diversity, emancipation and social praxis, and inter-religious dialogue.
📒Christology ✍ Hans Schwarz
📝Christology Book Synopsis : Books on the historical Jesus abound in both the scholarly market and the popular press. Few of these recent studies, however, draw on the entire witness of Scripture and tradition when engaging the contemporary debate over the meaning and significance of Jesus of Nazareth. Bringing together both the pursuit of the historical Jesus and the systematic exposition of the Christ of faith, Hans Schwarz here presents a solid historical and biblical introduction to Christology that demonstrates the relevance of Jesus for today. After surveying the history of New Testament scholarship and exploring the biblical testimony itself, Schwarz restates important Christological themes in ways that connect them with present-day concerns. Schwarz includes in his discussion his own proposal for constructing a Christology from below that also takes seriously the resurrection. Clear and well organized, this volume is an excellent resource for discussing Christological themes within the context of today's historically oriented academy.
📒An Introduction To New Testament Christology ✍ Raymond Edward Brown
📝An Introduction to New Testament Christology Book Synopsis : Examines "christology's"--or evaluations of Jesus' identity and divinity--based upon his words, his public ministry, and the Resurrection.
📒Luke S Presentation Of Jesus ✍ Robert F. O'Toole
📝Luke s Presentation of Jesus Book Synopsis : This study uses composition criticism to consider everything that Luke wrote about Jesus. Jesus was a human being and a prophet, yet Luke wished to say much more. He has a very extensive and developed portrayal of Jesus as a saviour. His roles as Servant of Yahweh and Son of Man play a real part in explaining a number of Jesus' experiences and actions, including his passion. Jesus' identification as the Christ can be associated with the being Son of God, but each of these identifications has its own nuances. Luke 1:35 proves crucial for a correct understanding of Son of God and guides the reader's comprehension of Jesus' identity. The OT background of Lord leads to a correct interpretation of this title when applied to Jesus, and Luke willingly predicates similar things of God and of Jesus.
📒Christology In Context ✍ Marinus de Jonge
📝Christology in Context Book Synopsis : In Christology in Context, Marinus de Jonge presents the varied response to Jesus of Nazareth by his first-century followers. A scholarly yet highly accessible work, this book provides a knowledge base for formal, systematic analysis of New Testament Christology.

📝The Oxford Handbook of Christology Book Synopsis : The Oxford Handbook of Christology brings together 40 authoritative essays considering the theological study of the nature and role of Jesus Christ.

The section on "Reformation and Christology" traces the path of the Reformation from Luther to Bultmann. The fifth section tackles the new developments in thinking about Christ which have emerged in the modern and the postmodern eras, and the sixth section explains how beliefs about Jesus have affected music, poetry, and the arts.

This comprehensive volume provides an invaluable resource and reference for scholars, students, and general readers interested in the study of Christology.

📒Christology ✍ R.W. Davis
📝Christology Book Synopsis : What was Jesus Christ true purpose for coming to earth? What is the True Gospel message? What in the world is the Kingdom of God? Is there historical evidence for Christ existence here on earth? Was Christ really God in human flesh? The problem in the world today, as well as in the Church, is the fact that much is said about Christ with little to nothing is being said or understood about the Kingdom. Somehow people have separated the man from his message. R.W. Davis presents in Christology several theological subjects in regards to Christ from the perspective of his Kingdom message. Christology goes against the grain of traditional Christianity and challenges the believer and the unbeliever to accept the true message of Christ and to come to an understanding of what has been made available as a result of the finish work of Jesus. The kingdom message as explained in Christology is not about escaping this world and going to heaven. The kingdom message is about mankind being restored back to God and reigning and ruling with God now and throughout eternity. God in Christ has granted us access to share his sovereignty. That is what the true gospel is all about and is the underlining idea that is being conveyed in Christology. Get ready to be enlightened with the truth of God’s word and to come to know the true purpose of Christ coming as well as the true purpose behind him dying for our sins.
