Contours of Christology in the New Testament

Synopsis

This volume focuses on Christology in the New Testament. It is a topic that has been treated extensively in monographs, commentaries, systematic theologies, and devotional writings of the Christian church. Nonetheless, the contributors believe it deserves a better critical, historical, exegetical, and bbiblical theologyb treatment than is usually received in either the scholarly or the popular press. So this volume was prepared with the hope that a more responsible treatment of Christology in the New Testament will prove to be of help to many earnest Christians who seek to think and live in a more Christian fashion, and thereby have a positive impact on the church at large.

Excerpt

This is the seventh volume in the McMaster New Testament Studies series, sponsored by McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The series is designed to address particular themes in the New Testament that are (or should be) of crucial concern to Christians today. The contributors are selected because of their proven expertise in the areas assigned and their known ability to write intelligibly for readers who are not necessarily academics. Each article included in these symposium volumes, therefore, will evidence first-class biblical scholarship, but will also be written in a manner capable of capturing the interest of intelligent lay people, theological students, and ministers. In purpose, the articles will be both scholarly and pastoral. In format, they will be styled to reflect the best of contemporary, constructive scholarship, but in a way that is able to be understood by and that speaks to the needs of alert and intelligent people in the church today.

This seventh volume in the MNTS series focuses on christology in the New Testament. It is a topic that has been treated extensively in monographs, commentaries, systematic theologies, and devotional writings of the Christian church. Nonetheless, we believe it deserves a better critical, historical, exegetical, and “biblical theology” treatment than is usually received in either the scholarly or the popular press. So we have prepared this volume with the hope that a more responsible treatment of christology in the New Testament will prove to be of help to many earnest Christians who seek to think and live in a more Christian fashion, and thereby that it will have a positive impact on the church at large.

Our thanks are expressed to the family of Herbert Henry Bingham . . .
