Overview

Eerdmans Publishing Company is pleased to present the highly anticipated expanded edition of Richard Bauckham’s God Crucified. Surprising and provocative in its debut — though always historically and theologically responsible — this book helped to redirect the debate on early Christology.

Praise for the first edition:

“Richard Bauckham writes clearly and argues his case carefully. . . . He presents an original, immensely exciting, and promising account of NT Christology. . . . His presentation reflects some of the very best recent work in theology.”

Pro Ecclesia

“Bauckham proposes a clearly superior way of reading the evidence about the relationship between the New Testament’s claims about Jesus’ identity and the identity of God as understood within the context of Second Temple Judaism.”

Books & Culture

“God Crucified displays the craft of both a careful exegete and a deft theologian as Bauckham explores the riddle of how the radically monotheistic Jews who composed the earliest church could have come to call Jesus 'Lord.’ . . . Bauckham’s Christology of divine identity offers a proper way to understand the New Testament within its Jewish monotheistic context by including Jesus, cross and all, within the unique identity of Israel’s God.”
