📒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.
📒The Oxford Handbook Of Christology ✍ Francesca Aran Murphy
📝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. This collection offers dynamic perspectives within the study of Christology and provides rigorous discussion of inter-confessional theology, which would not have been possible even 60 years ago. The first of the seven parts considers Jesus Christ in the Bible. Rather than focusing solely on the New Testament, this section begins with discussion of the modes of God's self-communication to us and suggests that Christ's most original incarnation is in the language of the Hebrew Bible. The second section considers Patristics Christology. These essays explore the formation of the doctrines of the person of Christ and the atonement between the First Council of Nicaea in 325 and the eve of the Second Council of Nicaea. The next section looks at Medieval theology and tackles the development of the understanding of who Christ was and of his atoning work. 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. The final part concludes by locating Christology within systematic theology, asking how it relates to Christian belief as a whole. This comprehensive volume provides an invaluable resource and reference for scholars, students, and general readers interested in the study of Christology.

📒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.

📒Shape Of Christology ✍ John McIntyre
📝Shape of Christology Book Synopsis : A thoroughly revised and expanded edition of this classic work to complete John McIntyre's trilogy in Christian doctrine: soteriology, pneumatology and Christology.McIntyre analyses the three classic christological formulations: the two-nature model with divine and human natures uniting in Jesus Christ; the psychological model, derived from the chalcedonian understanding of the humanity of Christ, and from a strong devotional desire to know his mind; and the revelation model, which has dominated western Christology for most of the twentieth-century.
📒Christology From Within And Ahead ✍ Mark L. Y. Chan
📝Christology from Within and Ahead Book Synopsis : A hermeneutical Christology is developed, which takes into account the historical contingency of knowledge. Through the proposed models of Christology "from within" and "from ahead," it underscores the role of tradition, experience and eschatology in the formulation of Christology.
📒God Crucified ✍ Richard Bauckham
📝God Crucified Book Synopsis : Recent discussion of the interpretation of New Testament Christology has been closely linked with debate about the nature of Jewish monotheism in the period.This book argues that once Judaism's perception of the uniqueness of God is correctly understood, it becomes clear that the first Christians simply included Jesus in the unique identity of the God of Israel. According to Richard Bauckham, the earliest Christology was already the highest Christology, a fully divine Christology entirely compatible with the Jewish monotheistic understanding of God. In place of the misleading categories of "functional" and "ontic" Christology, he argues that New Testament Christology is best viewed as a Christology of "divine identity." For such a Christology, the exalted christ and the earthly, crucified Jesus both belong to the unique identity of God. This approach, in turn, has important consequences for the New Testament's understanding of God. The divine identity -- who God truly is -- is to be seen in Jesus' humiliation, suffering, and death as well as in his heavenly glory. Originating as the prestigious 1996 Didsbury Lectures, "God Crucified makes a significant contribution to biblical studies of interest to Jews and Christians alike.
