Overview

Recent discussion of the interpretation of New Testament Christology has been closely linked with debate about the nature of Jewish monotheism in the period. This book argues that once Judaism's perception of the uniqueness of God is correctly understood, it becomes clear that the first Christians simply included Jesus in the unique identity of the God of Israel. Originating as the prestigious 1996 Didsbury Lectures, God Crucified makes a significant contribution to biblical studies of interest to Jews and Christians alike.

Editorial Reviews

America
"Richard Bauckham, professor of New Testament at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and an expert on Second Temple Jewish texts, advances the bold thesis that belief in the divinity of Jesus was a very early development in Christian faith, and that it fits well within Jewish monotheism properly understood as concerned with divine identity—with who God is rather than what God is....By bringing a new paradigm to early Christology Bauckham is true both to Second Temple Judaism and to the New Testament. His essay (described as "a concise version" of a much larger work in progress) deserves the attention of biblical scholars and theologians."
Religious Studies Review
Filled with brilliant insights, this treatise on a still-vexing problem is absolutely required reading for all NT students, exegetes, and theologians.
