       Who do the Gospels say Jesus is?

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. Michael Bird, however, argues that the Gospels' messianic claims are the most significant feature of their portrayal of Jesus.

Bird describes how each Evangelist portrays Jesus as the Messiah of Israel, what they think is at stake in that claim, and how the claim that 'Jesus is the Messiah' drives the purpose and shape of the Gospels. Emphasizing that Christianity was a messianic movement rooted in its Jewish context, Jesus is the Christ points toward the profound theological implication of Jesus' identity: that Jesus' messiahship is the 'mother of all Christology.'

  • Provides a formidable defense of the orthodox perspective on a hotly debated issue among New Testament scholars
  • Models close study of the biblical text
  • Written by a world-class New Testament scholar
  • Useful to specialists and nonspecialists alike
