This is a multi-view book in which representatives of differing viewpoints make a positive statement of their case, followed by responses from the others, and concluding with a rebuttal by the original author. The topic at hand in this book is the identity of Jesus (also known as Christology). What is the meaning of Jesus's identity as "the Son of God"? Charles Lee Irons argues that the title "Son of God" denotes his ontological deity from a Trinitarian perspective. Danny André Dixon and Dustin R. Smith challenge this view from two different non-Trinitarian viewpoints. Smith argues that Jesus is the authentically human Son of God, the Davidic Messiah, who did not possess a literal preexistence prior to his virgin birth. Dixon argues that Jesus is God's preexistent Son in the sense that God gave him life or existence at some undefined point prior to creation. The authors engage the topic from the perspective that reverences the authority and inspiration of Scripture as the final arbiter of this debate. The literature of early Judaism is also engaged in order to try to understand the extent to which the New Testament's Christology may have been influenced by or operated within the context of Jewish conceptions of divine secondary beings as agents of God.

Book Description Wipf Stock Publishers, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This is a multi-view book in which representatives of differing viewpoints make a positive statement of their case, followed by responses from the others, and concluding with a rebuttal by the original author. The topic at hand in this book is the identity of Jesus (also known as Christology). What is the meaning of Jesus s identity as the Son of God ? Charles Lee Irons argues that the title Son of God denotes his ontological deity from a Trinitarian perspective. Danny Andre Dixon and Dustin R. Smith challenge this view from two different non-Trinitarian viewpoints. Smith argues that Jesus is the authentically human Son of God, the Davidic Messiah, who did not possess a literal preexistence prior to his virgin birth. Dixon argues that Jesus is God s preexistent Son in the sense that God gave him life or existence at some undefined point prior to creation. The authors engage the topic from the perspective that reverences the authority and inspiration of Scripture as the final arbiter of this debate. The literature of early Judaism is also engaged in order to try to understand the extent to which the New Testament s Christology may have been influenced by or operated within the context of Jewish conceptions of divine secondary beings as agents of God. The Son of God: Three Views of the Identity of Jesus provides a scintillating account of the most important question of all: who is Jesus? Is he God, is he semi-divine, or merely a human being? The authors offer some rigorous debate over scripture, theology, and church history. Sparks fly and no quarter is given in an engaging and at times even enraging debate on a very important subject. --Michael F. Bird, Lecturer in Theology at Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia The portrayal of Jesus as the Son of God in the Bible is a supremely important topic in Christian theology. In this volume the authors engage the biblical data seriously and come to their own conclusions honestly. This book will not only expose the readers to the wider theological perspectives on the identity of Jesus, but also help come to a deeper understanding of who Jesus is. --Aquila H. I. Lee, Visiting Professor, Torch Trinity Graduate University; Lecturer, Ezra Bible Institute of Graduate Studies, South Korea. There are at least three ways to revere Jesus, and these three are definitely not one. This book is full of surprises, from the unexpected areas of agreement, to the way the Arian and Socinian views differ so starkly from each other in their fundamental principles, to the way the Trinitarian view leans now toward one interlocutor, now toward the other, and finally stands alone. --Fred Sanders, Professor of Theology, Torrey Honors Institute, Biola University Charles Lee Irons, PhD, is the Senior Research Administrator at The Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science. Danny Andre Dixon, MA, MEd, is an English Language Arts Teacher at Fort Stockton High School in Fort Stockton, Texas. Dustin R.
