Product Overview

When the ancients discussed "Messiah," what did they picture? Did it refer to a stately figure to rule, a militant to rescue, or a term to describe a variety of roles held by many? While Christians have traditionally equated the word with Jesus, the discussion is far more complex. "The Messiah in the Old and New Testament" is the culmination of that discussion.

In this excellent collection Stanley Porter has gathered a host of experts to address the questions surrounding the concept of messiah, in order to clarify what it means to call Jesus "messiah." Divided into two parts -- writers who preceded or surrounded the New Testament and writers of the New Testament -- and followed by a complete response to both sections from Craig A. Evans, any student of the New Testament will find this book a useful tool for sparking further discussion and understanding the past.
