Jesus Divine Messiah: The New and Old Testament Witness Hardcover – January 21, 2003
Customers who bought this item also bought
In this volume Dr Reymond offers a substantial and clear defence of the traditional Christian assertion that the Bible represents Jesus as the Divine Messiah. In an age when this claim is debated by many and dismissed by some, the first part of this volume re-examines many of the messianic texts of the Old Testament. The second part looks at how the New Testament authors regarded Jesus and drew on the Old Testament material to show that Jesus was indeed the long-expected Messiah and was himself Divine. This is an inspiring and challenging work from a strong evangelical scholar. It is a worthy summary of the biblical evidence that Jesus is the Divine Messiah and offers an excellent resource for all evangelicals seeking to defend this vital biblical teaching.
(Paul Gardner ~ Senior Minister, Christ Church Presbyterian, Atlanta, Georgia)
'Takes great care to analyse various critical views of recent vintage and to show how they fail to give us a consistent picture of Christ. Probably not since H.P. Liddon's The Divinity of our Lord (1867) has such a massive defence of the deity of Jesus appeared in print. Dr. Reymond worthily functions in the train of Vos, Warfield, and Machen.' (Roger Nicole ~ (1915-2010) Professor of Theology, Emeritus, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, Florida)
'The range of his scholarship is extensive, and there is no exegetical or theological nettle that he hesitates to grasp here. He never fudges an issue... His opening chapter, in which he deals with present denials of the deity of Jesus, is of special value, and I would make it required reading for every theological student.' (Geoffrey Grogan ~ (1925-2011), Principal of Glasgow Bible College and well-respected author)
'Dr Reymond has an impressive acquaintance with the literature on the subject, and he has not shirked the difficult issues. He has rendered a service to the whole church in dealing so thoroughly with the evidence and giving his up-to-date assessment of its significance... a magnificent study of the biblical teaching about Jesus Christ.' (Leon Morris (1914-2006) ~ Late Principal of Ridley College, Melbourne)
'Displays a truly impressive breadth of scholarship, and is a consistently conservative summary of the biblical evidence as well as the critical arguments at every conceivable point of importance in the contemporary christological debate.' (Robert Strimple ~ Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology, Westminster Seminary California, Escondido, California)

If you read theology to come to grips with what scholars say about the bible, you will find a good conservative guide here, as Reymond interacts with the Jesus Seminar and other schools which do not believe that the New Testament is a reliable guide to what Jesus said and did.
But if your primary focus is to understand the Scriptures themselves, you are in the same ballpark as the author.
My first foray into theology was studying the divinity of Christ, via the chains in the Thompson Chain Reference Bible. This book takes me back 35 years, but adds so much more!
If you love the Lord Jesus Christ, and want to know more about him, this book will thrill your heart. Highly recommended
