Full Product Description

Since Jesus lived so long ago, we assume that we know little about his life story. In fact, we know more about him than many famous people closer to our own time. We have twenty-seven New Testament texts focused on him written by nine different authors; and, although hostile to him, non-Christian writers from the same era corroborate the basic facts about Jesus, and the character of early Christianity.

The first Christians worshipped Jesus the exalted Messiah as a divinity, as witnessed by Pliny’s observation that they sang hymns to Christ ‘as if to a God’ – and yet many dismiss the pre-crucifixion Jesus as something infinitely less, a mere rabbi or prophet.

In response Paul Barnett offers this accessible exploration of Jesus as Messiah. Barnett demonstrates that, as Messiah, Jesus is centre of the Bible’s story, which is the story of God’s salvation of the human race. As the fulfilment of the promises in the Old Testament, the Messiah is the end of the beginning. At the same time, as the herald and inaugurator of the kingdom of God, he is the beginning of the end. So Messiah is the centre of all things that matter, both for humanity and for individuals.

Messiah by Paul Barnett was published by Intervarsity Press in January 2009 and is our 34230th best seller. The ISBN for Messiah is 9781844743520.
