Who is Jesus?: An Introduction to Christology

Thomas P Rausch

$54.99

Paperback

Who is Jesus? This is the fundamental question for christology. The earliest Christians used various titles, most of them drawn from the Old Testament or Hebrew Scriptures, to express their faith in Jesus. They called him prophet, teacher, Messiah, Son of David, Son of Man, Lord, Son of God, Word of God, and occasionally even God. In "Who Is Jesus?" Thomas Rausch, S.J., focuses on the New Testament's rich variety of christologies.

"Who Is Jesus?" covers the three quests for the historical Jesus, the methods for retrieving the historical Jesus, the Jewish background, the Jesus movement, his preaching and ministry, death and resurrection, the various New Testament christologies, and the development of christological doctrine from the New Testament period to the Council of Chalcedon.
