The scope of the subject presented in this work is expressed on the title page. It will be readily seen that the author has departed from the course usually followed by writers on the Life of Jesus Christ, which course, as a rule, begins with the birth of Mary's Babe and ends with the ascension of the slain and risen Lord from Olivet. The treatment embodied in these pages, in addition to the narrative of the Lord's life in the flesh comprizes the antemortal existence and activities of the world's Redeemer, the revelations and personal manifestations of the glorified and exalted Son of God during the apostolic period of old and in modern times, the assured nearness of the Lord's second advent, and predicted events beyond all so far as the Holy Scriptures make plain.

Reversing Hermon is a groundbreaking work. It unveils what most in the modern Church have never heard regarding how the story of the sin of the Watchers in 1 Enoch 6-16 helped frame the mission of Jesus, the messiah. Jews of the first century expected the messiah to reverse the impact of the Watchers' transgression. For Jews of Jesus' day, the Watchers were part of the explanation for why the world was so profoundly depraved. The messiah would not just revoke the claim of Satan on human souls and estrangement from God, solving the predicament of the Fall. He would also not only bring the nations back into relationship with the true God by defeating the principalities and powers that governed them. Jews also believed that the messiah would rescue humanity from self-destruction, the catalyst for which was the sin of the Watchers and the influence of what they had taught humankind. The role of Enoch's retelling of Genesis 6:1-4 in how New Testament writers wrote of Jesus and the cross has been largely lost to a modern audience. Reversing Hermon rectifies that situation. Topics include:* How the ancient Mesopotamian story of the apkallu aligns with Gen 6:1-4, was preserved in 1 Enoch, and sets the stage for the theme of reversing the evil of the Watchers* How the theme of reversing the transgression of the Watchers colors the gospel accounts of the birth of Jesus, his genealogy, and his ministry.* How the writings of Peter and Paul allude to the sin of the Watchers and present Jesus as overturning the disastrous effects of their sins against humanity.* How the descriptions of the antichrist, the end-times Day of the Lord, and the final judgment connect to Genesis 6 and the nephilim.Though every topic addressed in Reversing Hermon can be found in scholarly academic literature, Reversing Hermon is the first book to gather this information and make it accessible to Bible students everywhere.

"Jesus the Messiah" is a basic, non-technical introduction to the life of Christ, carefully tracing His life and works as evidence of the truth of His claims and of the firm convictions of the early Christians--an inspirational study of Christ's life. The author prefaces his work by admitting that "Many deny the possibility of writing a life of Jesus, and it must be conceded that no 'life' in the biographical sense can be written. It is impossible to produce a psychological study of Jesus. His developing awareness of messianic mission cannot be traced. This book presents an account of Jesus from the perspective of faith. It sees in His deeds and words evidence of the truth of His claims and of the firm convictions of the early Christians. . . . No one who reflects on His life and mission can fail to be affected by it, and in this sense the present study is in the nature of a personal testimony."

In this insightful, challenging, revolutionary and inspirational book, the author puts a new perspective on the mission of the Messiah, the life and mission of Jesus, and the life and mission of Moses. Many people have a wrong concept about Jesus. Christianity has misrepresented many issues pertaining to Jesus that cause most Christians and believers from other religions not to relate to the true Jesus. The author believes that by people relating to a conventional Jesus, they fail to relate to the true Messiah, and therefore their relationship with God is in shambles.

The subject of this book is the apostolic mission of Jesus the Messiah, who was sent into this world by His Heavenly Father and given a commission to liberate humanity from the kingdom of the devil and the evil powers which have been allied with him ever since the fall of Adam. In fulfilling this mission, Jesus pursued an active ministry for over three years. His mission and ministry were focused on the proclamation of a completely new message: the Gospel, or Good News, of the Kingdom of God. Through this message, Jesus announced that God's Kingdom was breaking into the darkness of this world to liberate the captives of the devil. Moreover, it was a "multimedia presentation" which was announced in words and demonstrated in miraculous works of healing and deliverance through the power of the Holy Spirit. His apostolic mission is especially important to the modern Church because it is also our mission and ministry. Although our Lord was the first to announce the Gospel of the Kingdom, He trained and equipped His apostles to carry on the ministry which He had begun. Moreover, before He ascended to the Father He commissioned His Church to proclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom throughout the entire world. Gary Larson is an itinerant Bible teacher who lives in Columbus, Ohio. He and his wife Maureen have three grown children, three grandchildren, and one great grandchild. Gary's first career was in astronomy, but God called him into the Gospel ministry over forty years ago. He has taught in a Bible school and pastored two churches. The Apostolic Mission of Jesus the Messiah is his first book."

The Messiahship of the Lord, following the teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon in the Divine Principle, will stimulate a meaningful conversation about the existence of the Messiah and his importance in the Second Coming. Theories discussed include the use and importance of miracles, how Satan has usurped the role of the divine in everyday lives, and how people of all faiths can look to the Lord of the Second Advent for redemption. Did Christ rise physically, spiritually, or both? Were his miracles of the physical nature or the spiritual nature? How can we connect with him to go to Heaven? Whether you are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, or subscribe to any other faith, this book will lead you to a thought-provoking analysis of your beliefs.

The common wisdom is that Christians and Muslims should dialogue only about what they agree on. This book takes a different approach. As the author observes, “If we focus only on our common ground, we will miss some of the motivating force of our traditions, because that force derives not only from what we hold in common, but also from those convictions that keep us apart.”

The Way of Jesus Christ discusses the following topics: 1. The symbol of the way embodies the aspect of process and brings out christology's alignment towards its goal. This symbol can comprehend Christ's way from his birth in the Spirit and his baptism in the Spirit to his self-surrender on Golgotha. It also makes it possible to understand the path of Christ as the way leading from his resurrection to his parousia-the way he takes in the Spirit to Israel, to the nations, and into the breadth and depth of the cosmos. 2. The symbol of the way makes us aware that every human christology is historically conditioned and limited. Every human christology is a 'christology of the way, ' not yet a 'christology of the home country, ' a christology of faith, not yet a christology of sight. So christology is no more than the beginning of eschatology; and eschatology, as the Christian faith understands it, is always the consummation of christology. 3. Finally, but not least important: every way is an invitation. A way is something to be followed. 'The way of Jesus Christ' is not merely a christological category. It is an ethical category too. Anyone who enters upon Christ's way will discover who Jesus really is; and anyone who really believes in Jesus and the Christ of God will follow him along the way he himself took. Christology and christopraxis find one another in the full and completed knowledge of Christ. This christology links dogmatics and ethics in closer detail than in the previous volumes.

James Dunn is regarded worldwide as one of today's foremost biblical scholars. Having written groundbreaking studies of the New Testament and a standard work on Paul's theology, Dunn here turns his pen to the rise of Christianity itself. Jesus Remembered is the first installment in what will be a monumental three-volume history of the first 120 years of the faith. Focusing on Jesus, this first volume has several distinct features. It garners the lessons to be learned from the "quest for the historical Jesus" and meets the hermeneutical challenges to a historical and theological assessment of the Jesus tradition. It provides a fresh perspective both on the impact made by Jesus and on the traditions about Jesus as oral tradition -- hence the title "Jesus Remembered." And it offers a fresh analysis of the details of that tradition, emphasizing its characteristic (rather than dissimilar) features. Noteworthy too are Dunn's treatments of the source question (particularly Q and the noncanonical Gospels) and of Jesus the Jew in his Galilean context. In his detailed analysis of the Baptist tradition, the kingdom motif, the call to and character of discipleship, what Jesus' audiences thought of him, what he thought of himself, why he was crucified, and how and why belief in Jesus' resurrection began, Dunn engages wholeheartedly in the contemporary debate, providing many important insights and offering a thoroughly convincing account of how Jesus was remembered from the first, and why. Written with peerless scholarly acumen yet accessible to a wide range of readers, Dunn's Jesus Remembered, together with its successor volumes, will be a sine qua non for all students of Christianity's beginnings.

Biblical texts create worlds of meaning and invite readers to enter them. When readers enter such textual worlds, which are often strange and complex, they are confronted with theological claims. With this in mind, the purpose of the Interpreting Biblical Texts series is to help dedicated students in their experience of reading and interpreting by providing guides for their journeys into textual worlds. The controlling perspective is expressed in the operative word of the title: interpreting. The primary focus of the series is not so much on the world behind the texts or out of which the texts have arisen as on the worlds created by the texts in their engagement with readers. In this volume, Donald Senior provides an up-to-date introduction to the Gospel of Matthew. The seven chapters of Part One focus on modern biblical scholarship and the interpretation of Matthew, discussing the sources and structure of the Gospel, its use of the Old Testament, its understanding of Jewish Law, its setting as a part of the mission of Christianity to the Gentiles, its Christology, its understanding of the nature of discipleship, and the community from which the Gospel originated. The six chapters of Part Two provide a structured guide to reading and interpreting Matthew's Gospel.

This book will explore the Old Testament roots of Christianity and how that Judaism and Christianity are inherently the same; this book expounds the well-founded connection to Jesus and the ancient prophetic writings. Prophecy is one of the single-most powerful pieces of evidence of the supernatural workings of God on earth and hence a focal point for establishing the Messiahship of Jesus. This book is essential for any non-believer seeking a case for why he or she should believe that Jesus died, was resurrected, and that He is ultimately the Savior of our souls. In addition, the knowledge and understanding that can be gained are not just relevant for non-believers, but the book is also a powerful tool for Christians who don't know everything there is to know about Messianic prophecy. When Christians also understand the true potency of their own faith, they are better able to teach Christ to others. The author is a recent college graduate having earned his BS in Biology from Valdosta State University in 2005. His life in serving God began at the age of 13 at which time he personally experienced the life-changing power of Christ, and hence, the purpose-filled journey began. Now he hopes to help others to experience the miraculous power of Jesus that he experienced. In relation to the writing of this book, the inspiration was born out of a love for the Jewish people and a desire to see all of God's lost sheep saved. In addition, he also hopes to enlighten everyday Christians making them more aware of the power of the surety of their hope in Christ. He currently resides in the southeastern United States.

Did Jesus claim to be the long-awaited "messiah"? Going against much contemporary scholarship, Australian scholar Michael Bird argues that he did. He begins by exploring the messianic expectations in the Old Testament and Second Temple Jewish literature. Next, Bird points out weaknesses in current arguments that "Messiah," or "Christ," was a title given to Jesus by the early church but not used by Jesus himself. Bird then examines the Gospels and related literature, finding in Jesus's words and actions evidence that he saw himself as the messiah described in the Scriptures of Israel and believed that Israel's restoration hinged on the outcome of his ministry.
