 The Bringer of Salvation

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter explores the role of Christ as the bringer of salvation. It questions the qualifications he possessed for him to do all that has been attributed to him in the New Testament. It is shown that that there is no ‘higher’ Christology than one which transfers to Jesus the role of Old Testament divine intermediaries who represent God to His creatures: prophet, priest, Son of David, Messiah, Son of God, Servant of God, logos, wisdom, and Lord. Each of these contributes to an elaborate mosaic called New Testament Christology.
