The Deity of Christ
05/24/2007 - Jeff DownsSide note - after 30 some years of wearing tube socks, just last week my wife threw away my last pair and purchased a pack, of what looks and feels like footies (girl socks). So, it is good to see Dr. White with socks pulled up to his knees (although, I didn't wear mine that high). I'll have to tell my wife about it :)
On another note... Around September of this year, you want to look for
Putting Jesus in His Place: The Case for the Deity of Christ, Robert Bowman, Jr. and J. Ed Komoszewski Kregal, 2007; ISBN#: 978-0-8254-2983-5), 400 pages.
Here is the Website for the book and a listing of endorsements include Richard Bauckham, Larry W. Hurtado, Daniel B. Wallace, Craig Evans, Murray Harris, Thomas R. Schreiner, Craig Blomberg and others.
The central theological distinctive of Christianity—that Jesus is God incarnate— has repeatedly come under fire from adherents to other religions and scholars who interpret Jesus as a prophet, angel, or guru. Putting Jesus in His Place is designed to introduce Christians to the wealth of biblical teaching on the deity of Christ. Using evidence from the New Testament, this book helps readers appreciate the significance of Christ’s deity in a personal relationship with Him, and gives them the confidence to share the truth about Jesus with others.
Thank you Robert and Ed for putting together a positive case the Lord of Glory!
