Jesus and the God of Israel: God Crucified and Other Studies on the New Testament's Christology of Divine Identity
From The Publisher:
This book is a greatly revised and expanded edition of Richard Bauckham’s acclaimed God Crucified: Monotheism and Christology in the New Testament (1999), which helped redirect scholarly discussion of early Christology.
“Bauckham proposes a clearly superior way of reading the evidence about the relationship between the New Testament’s claims about Jesus’ identity and the identity of God as understood within the context of Second Temple Judaism.”
—Books & Culture
“Displays the craft of both a careful exegete and a deft theologian as Bauckham explores the riddle of how the radically monotheistic Jews who composed the earliest church could have come to call Jesus ‘Lord.’ . . . .Bauckham’s Christology of divine identity offers a proper way to understand the New Testament within its Jewish monotheistic context by including Jesus, cross and all, within the unique identity of Israel’s God.”
