Messiah Jesus

Christology in His Day and Ours


Douglas Kennard

Messiah Jesus: Christology in His Day and Ours argues that Jesus is a complex Messiah in a second Temple Jewish context. This book describes Jesus in his many roles: King, Healer, Teacher, superior Scribe of the Law, Discipler, Sage, Judge, Prophet, Martyr example, atoning Sacrifice, Priest, and mystical Leader in resurrection. Douglas W. Kennard examines how Jesus became realized as God revealing Himself and how it is this full realization of who Jesus is that became the Biblical gospel. The book is a critical realist Biblical and systematic theologic statement that deepens awareness of Jesus.
