Customer Reviews for Inter-Varsity Press Jesus the Messiah

Inter-Varsity Press Jesus the Messiah

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 this book, 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.

This is just what I was looking for, with even more being the first hardback book that I have received in some time. Thank you kindly, and God bless you all at CBD.

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.

I ordered this book for a college class I am taking. It is not quite what I would have expected for a college text. Stein seems to put too much emphasis on the extrabiblical sources and not enough on the Scripture. He also spends too much time discussing all of the other points of view rather than just getting to the point of what he wants to get across.
