Explains the importance of the title and role of Messiah in each of the Gospels and argues that Christianity was a messianic movement rooted in its Jewish context.

Michael Bird engages the subject of the messianism of the four Gospels. While the title and role of 'Messiah' ascribed to Jesus in the Gospels has long been regarded as a late add on, a fabricated claim, or an insignificant feature, Bird argues in contrast that the messianic claims are the most significant for the portrayal of Jesus.

Essential reading
5 stars By Stuart, Feb 13 2013
This is a superb book that can be read by anyone regardless of there understanding or exposure to the subject matter. This book is a breath of fresh air. Bird convincingly challenges the predominant view among critical scholarship that Jesus did not claim to be the Messiah and that this idea was a conviction or construction of the communities that the Gospels came out of.  This book does much to show the authenticity of the Gospels.
