Self-Disclosure of Jesus

Self-Disclosure of Jesus

Paperback(2nd ed.)



Did Jesus claim to be the Messiah? What Vos discerned in his day applies equally to ours: “a certain class of writers” regards with “disfavor . . . the Messianic element in the Gospels.” His comprehensive, detailed refutation of such writers, first released in 1926, has helped evangelicals answer these questions affirmatively for more than ninety years.
