Overview

What did Jesus teach regarding the eschatological tribulation? Brant Pitre's answer to this basic question has ramifications for Jesus' understanding of his own identity and mission.

Pitre examines key texts pertaining to Jesus' perception of his own death. In line with Jewish eschatological teachings of his day, Jesus taught that an eschatological tribulation would precede the final ingathering of God's exiled people and interpreted his own death as a key triggering event in that sequence. This comprehensive treatment of the Great Tribulation includes a provocative critique of N. T. Wright's understanding of exile and has important consequences for Jesus' messianic self-understanding.

This fresh contribution to the question of Jesus and the atonement will be valued by New Testament scholars and biblical theology students alike.
