Monotheism, the idea that there is only one true God, is a powerful religious concept that was shaped by competing ideas and the problems they raised. Surveying New Testament writings and Jewish sources from before and after the rise of Christianity, James F. McGrath argues that even the most developed Christologies in the New Testament fit within the context of first century Jewish "monotheism." In doing so, he pinpoints more precisely when the parting of ways took place over the issue of God's oneness, and he explores philosophical ideas such as "creation out of nothing," which caused Jews and Christians to develop differing concepts and definitions about God.

James F. McGrath is an associate professor of religion at Butler University and the author of John's Apologetic Christology: Legitimation and Development in Johannine Christology.

Review:

“Sheds new light on the date and reasons for the division between Jewish and Christian monotheism. . . . Recommended.”--Choice



"An important corrective to the view that tends to interpret New Testament Christology in terms of Nicaea and later developments, thereby missing the Jewish intertextual and hermeneutical keys to interpreting many New Testament texts."--Review of Biblical Literature

"Provocative and valuable."--Journal of Ecumenical Studies
