Jesus the Temple

Jesus the Temple

Nicholas Perrin

$27.99

Paperback

A groundbreaking achievement from an Evangelical scholar

In this major new contribution to historical Jesus research, Wheaton based scholar Nicholas Perrin shows that by viewing Jesus as the new Temple we gain a better understanding of his aims and achievements, and how these gave rise to the early Church.

Whereas much recent Jesus research has puzzled over the apparent disunity between the historical Jesus and the proclamation of the earliest Christians, Perrin's account effectively closes the historical gap between founder and movement, between 'Jesus' and 'Christ'.

Nicholas Perrin begins by asking Who was Jesus? and recounts the three answers given to that question in contemporary Jesus scholarship: Jesus was a social thinker teaching a message of radical egalitarianism (Crossan, Borg); Jesus was a preacher of the restoration of the temple (Sanders); and Jesus was the Messiah (Wright). He suggests that these three answers can in fact be integrated if Jesus first and foremost saw himself and his movement as a reconstitution of the temple.
