If someone were to ask what it means that Jesus is Christ, most Christians today would probably answer in a very similar manner. But this was not the case in the earliest days of the church. Our understanding of the significance of Christ is called our Christology. In this book, Petr Pokorný, one of the world’s leading authorities on ancient Christologies, describes the various early Christologies which competed and intermingled for two or three centuries after the death of Jesus. He shows where they came from, what happened to them, how they influenced the shape of the New Testament, and how they were supplanted by or incorporated into the resurrection/exaltation Christology of today.Informative, interesting, and challenging, this book will not only help the reader get a clearer picture of Early Christianity, it will also enhance an understanding of modern Christian faith.
