“God Crucified” and Other Essays on the New Testament’s Christology of Divine Identity
The basic thesis of this important book on New Testament Christology, sketched in the first essay ‘God Crucified, is that the worship of Jesus as God was seen by the early Christians as compatible with their Jewish monotheism. Jesus was thought to participate in the divine identity of the one God of Israel. The other chapters provide more detailed support for, and an expansion of, this basic thesis. Readers will find not only the full text of Bauckham’s classic book God Crucified, but also groundbreaking essays, some of which have never been published previously
