Jesus the Messiah: A Survey of the Life of Christ

Front Cover
InterVarsity Press, Oct 30, 1996 - Religion - 290 pages
The time is ripe for a new account of the life of Jesus. It has been over twenty-five years since an evangelical New Testament scholar has written a textbook survey of this type. Today the landscape of Jesus and Gospel studies has been radically transformed by new questions and critical challenges. No less remarkable is the contemporary renaissance of our knowledge of the world of Jesus. In Jesus the Messiah Robert Stein draws together the results of a career of research and writing on Jesus and the Gospels. Every episode in the life of Jesus is here treated with historical care and attention to its significance for understanding the life and ministry of Jesus. Clearly written, ably argued and geared to the needs of students, Jesus the Messiah will give probing minds a sure grounding in the life and ministry of Jesus.

fantastic book so far. It gives a detailed outlook of sources, Biblical and non-Biblical of Jesus as well as a fairly detailed outlook of his life. Really easy read, good for advanced and beginner and everyone in between who truly want to know more about Jesus Christ. Read full review
