Jesus is Lord: Christology Yesterday and Today (Paperback)Donald MacLeod (author)
- We can order this
The Expository Times once contained a famous article by Vincent Taylor asking the question 'Does the New Testament call Jesus God?' Twenty years before Rudolf Bultmann said 'In describing Christ as God the New Testament still exercises great restraint.'
Taylor's conclusion was that the only clear statement of Jesus' deity was Thomas' words 'My Lord and my God.' In a later article in Expository Times Dr Michael Austin dismissed even this. His conclusion? 'The New Testament makes no unambiguous claim to Jesus' divinity.'
All this will come as a considerable surprise to ordinary readers of the New Testament!
Donald Macleod is recognised as one of the leading theologians alive. He is also able to explain complex thoughts with simplicity and clarity. This is his contribution to the debate on Christology. It builds on his previous writings about the Godhead and is a new work of international academic standing that is a rigorous theological defence of Christ's deity.
