Full Product Description
The first Christians worshipped Jesus the exalted Messiah as a divinity, as witnessed by Plinyís observation that they sang hymns to Christ Ďas if to a Godí Ė 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 Bibleís story, which is the story of Godís 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.

MessiahCarole Burrows, via The Good Book Stall
The “historical Jesus” is a much covered subject of late, both in writing and in lively conference debates. Some coverage is heavy going and some ill-balanced. Paul Barnett, while admittedly approaching the subject as a Christian, strives to maintain the objectivity of a historian, which brings depth and balance to the book. Input is from twenty-seven New Testament texts written by nine different authors, and non-Christian writers from the same era. Focussing on Jesus as Messiah from prophecy to birth and mission, the Messiah becomes central for both humanity and for individuals. Carole Burrows
