Jesus according to Scripture

WAS £14.99 £8.99

Product description

In this tome on the Gospels, Bock hopes "to show that the very diversity in the Gospels underscores an inherent unity in their claims that adds depth to the account of Jesus in a way that simply overlapping accounts would not. Just as a three-dimensional portrait gives depth to an image in a way that two dimensions cannot, so these four Gospels reveal a many-sided Jesus whose fundamental claims still challenge us today. Thus, such a look at Jesus according to Scripture gives us a glimpse of how unique a figure Jesus was" (17). Bock tells us that the premise of his textbook is that "too few people, much less students of the Gospels, are familiar enough with the Gospel accounts as they stand" (17).In four parts, Bock walks his readers through a comprehensive portrait of the Gospels, starting with an overview which emphasises the uniqueness of each Gospel. Then, Bock spills the majority of his ink over the portrait of Jesus contained in the synoptics, weaving these accounts together emphasising the Gospels' chronology alongside of their christology. Part three deals with Jesus according to John, and Bock's final chapter is a theological summary of his first three sections and the major theological themes which emerge from the Gospels. Bock wrote Jesus according to Scripture not as a technical study, but to be a painstaking presentation of the Gospel narratives. His lack of concision is in service to the presentation of this portrait of Jesus
