This chapter presents a commentary on Professor J.D.G. Dunn's book Christology in the Making. This book focuses on the subject of New Testament Christology. Based on the analyses of the book with reference to the New Testament, this chapter suggests that Dunn believed in the pre-existence of Christ in the sense that as Son of God he has shared the divine life from all eternity. However, Dunn failed to consider the sheer intellectual power and alertness of the author of the Epistle to the Romans.
