One of Germany's best-known New Testament scholars, Prof. Peter Stuhlmacher of Tubingen exegete and theologian, scholar and pastor offers here three outstanding essays on Jesus Christ, his death, and the Lord's Supper. Ever concerned with the relationship of history and theology, Stuhlmacher focuses intently on the correlation of facts and faith. Recognizing that the New Testament is concerned with both what happened in Jesus and what Jesus' person and work mean, Stuhlmacher sketches the dynamic trajectory from the concrete to the confessional.The first essay examines how 'the proclaimer' became 'the proclaimed.' The second essay recognizes the several levels of New Testament interpretation of Jesus' death, moving from the merely factual understanding to the thoroughly theological explanation. The third essay examines the elements of Jesus' ministry that are often related to the church's later celebration of the Lord's Supper, arguing that the practice looked back to Jesus' death and resurrection and gave concrete expression to the church's ongoing experience of the Risen Lord's presence and power until his eschatological return.Stuhlmacher's careful work is concerned to discover and demonstrate what from the Jesus of history, from the life of the early church, from the New Testament itself, and from historical Christian faith is 'incumbent upon us.' All persons concerned with Jesus, with faith in him as God's Christ, and with faithful discipleship to Jesus Christ as Lord will find this book instructive and inspiring.
Marion L. Soards, Professor of New Testament Studies, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary

James Dunn is regarded worldwide as one of today's foremost biblical scholars. Having written groundbreaking studies of the New Testament and a standard work on Paul's theology, Dunn here turns his pen to the rise of Christianity itself. Jesus Remembered is the first installment in what will be a monumental three-volume history of the first 120 years of the faith.

Focusing on Jesus, this first volume has several distinct features. It garners the lessons to be learned from the quest for the historical Jesus and meets the hermeneutical challenges to a historical and theological assessment of the Jesus tradition. It provides a fresh perspective both on the impact made by Jesus and on the traditions about Jesus as oral tradition -- hence the title Jesus Remembered. And it offers a fresh analysis of the details of that tradition, emphasizing its characteristic (rather than dissimilar) features. Noteworthy too are Dunn's treatments of the source question (particularly Q and the noncanonical Gospels) and of Jesus the Jew in his Galilean context.

In his detailed analysis of the Baptist tradition, the kingdom motif, the call to and character of discipleship, what Jesus' audiences thought of him, what he thought of himself, why he was crucified, and how and why belief in Jesus' resurrection began, Dunn engages wholeheartedly in the contemporary debate, providing many important insights and offering a thoroughly convincing account of how Jesus was remembered from the first, and why.

Written with peerless scholarly acumen yet accessible to a wide range of readers, Dunn's Jesus Remembered, together with its successor volumes, will be a sine qua non for all students of Christianity's beginnings.

Thought-provoking alternative perspective on the full humanity of Jesus Christ

In A Man Attested by God J. R. Daniel Kirk presents a comprehensive defense of the thesis that the Synoptic Gospels present Jesus not as divine but as an idealized human figure.

Counterbalancing the recent trend toward early high Christology in such scholars as Richard Bauckham, Simon Gathercole, and Richard Hays, Kirk here thoroughly unpacks the humanity of Jesus as understood by Gospel writers whose language is rooted in the religious and literary context of early Judaism. Without dismissing divine Christologies out of hand, Kirk argues that idealized human Christology is the best way to read the Synoptic Gospels, and he explores Jesus as exorcist and miracle worker within the framework of his humanity.

With wide-ranging exegetical and theological insight that sheds startling new light on familiar Gospel texts, A Man Attested by God offers up-to-date, provocative scholarship that will have to be reckoned with.

In this groundbreaking work, John Hick refutes the traditional Christian understanding of Jesus of Nazareth. According to Hick, Jesus did not teach what was to become the orthodox understanding of him: that he was God incarnate who became human to die for the sins of the world. Further, the traditional dogma of Jesus' two natures--human and divine--cannot be explained satisfactorily, and worse, it has been used to justify great human evils. Thus, the divine incarnation, he explains, is best understood metaphorically. Nevertheless, he concludes that Christians can still understand Jesus as Lord and the one who has made God real to us. This second edition includes new chapters on the Christologies of Anglican theologian John Macquarrie and Catholic theologian Roger Haight, SJ.
