Who Do People Say I Am?: Rewriting Gospel in Emerging Christianity
Robbins, Vernon K.

Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2013 pp. x + 259. $25.00



Description: Spanning early Christian writings from the Gospel of Mark to the Acts of John, this book by Vernon Robbins explores the various ways early Christians explained their understanding of the special nature of Jesus beyond the canonical Gospels. Who Do People Say I Am? shows how second-and third-century Christian authors of additional Gospels and Gospel-like writings expanded and elaborated on Jesus' divinity in the context of his earthly existence. According to Robbins, these Christian authors thought that the New Testament Gospel writers could and should have emphasized the divinity of Jesus more than they did.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Synoptic Gospels, Johannine Literature, John, Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, New Testament Apocrypha, Nag Hammadi and Gnostic, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, Literary Approaches
