The Divine Christ: Paul, the Lord Jesus, and the Scriptures of Israel
Capes, David B.

Grand Rapids: Baker Academic, 2018 pp. xvii + 206. $24.99

Series Information
Acadia Studies in Bible and Theology


Description: For the past century, scholars have debated when and how a divine Christology emerged. This book considers the earliest evidence we have, the letters of Paul. David Capes, a veteran teacher and highly regarded scholar, examines Paul's letters to show how the apostle constructed his unique portrait of Jesus as divine through a rereading of Israel's Scriptures. This new addition to the Acadia Studies in Bible and Theology series is ideal for use in courses on Paul, Christology, biblical theology, and intertextuality.

Subjects: Bible, Literature, Methods, Theological Approaches, Comparative Religion, Christianity, Theological Interpretation
