The Faith of Jesus Christ represents an attempt to grapple with one of the most perplexing problems in Pauline studies, namely that of the phrase pistis christou.


Issues of considerable theological import hinge on how we interpret it (does it mean "faith in Christ" or "the faithfulness of Christ"?).


The topic is now well rehearsed in contemporary scholarship and this volume sheds new light on the question by presenting rigorous exegetical studies from both sides of the debate. It also brings creative new proposals to bear on the problem, and orients the discussion in the wider spectrum of historical, biblical, and systematic theology. The Faith of Jesus Christ represents the most penetrating and comprehensive attempt to date to grapple with the significance of Jesus' faithfulness and obedience for Christian salvation and the extent to which it is represented in key biblical texts.


Contributors
^^University of Durham luminary James D.G. Dunn authors an erudite foreword; and editor Michael Bird introduces the problems and prospects for a New Testament conversation on the topic. Debbie Hunn, Stanley E. Porter, and Andrew W. Pitts contribute essays about the background of the pistis christou discussion. Douglas A. Campbell, R. Barry Matlock, Paul Foster, and Richard Bell clarify Pauline texts in contention. Mark A. Seifrid, Francis Watson, Preston M. Sprinkle, and Ardel B. Caneday explore Pauline exegesis, hermeneutics, and theology. The witness of the wider New Testament is covered by Peter G. Bolt, Willis H. Salier, Bruce A. Lowe, and David deSilva. Finally, Mark W. Elliott and Benjamin Myers offer historical and theological reflections from the church fathers, Karl Barth, and others.^


-Publisher

The 'Faith of Jesus Christ' represents an attempt to grapple with one of the most perplexing problems in Pauline studies, namely that of the meaning of the phrase 'pistis christou'. Is Paul speaking of our faith in Christ or of Christ's own faithfulness towards God? A lot hangs on which way we answer that question. Here some of the biggest names in contemporary NT scholarship join forces (and lock horns) to shed new light on the question bt=y presenting rigourous exegetical studies from both sides of the debate. It also brings creative new proposals to bear on the problem, and places the discussion in the wider spectrum of historical, biblical and systematic theology. This book is the most penetrating and comprehensive attempt to date to grapple with the significance of Jesus' faithfulness and obedience for Christian salvation and the extent to which it is represented in key biblical texts.
