"This excellent study of the origins and early development of Christology by James D.G. Dunn clarifies in rich detail the beginnings of the full Christian belief in Christ as the Son of God and incarnate Word. By employing the exegetical methods of "historical context of meaning" and "conceptuality in transition," Dunn illumines the first-century meaning of key titles and passages within the New Testament that bear directly on the development of the Christian understanding of Jesus."--Jacket

The theology of Paul the Apostle by James D. G Dunn( Book )

42 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,032 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using Paul's letter to the Romans as the foundation for constructing a fuller exposition of Paul's whole theology, Dunn's thematic treatment clearly describes Paul's teaching on such topics as God, humankind, sin, Christology, salvation, the church, and the nature of the Christian life. In the process Dunn engages, in a concise way, with what other important scholars have said regarding each area of inquiry. His work represents a major contribution to the ongoing discussion regarding what Paul's theology is and what its continuing relevance is to the study and practice of religion and theology."--Jacket
Jesus remembered by James D. G Dunn( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on Jesus, this first volume has several distinct features. It garners the lessons to be learned from the "quest for the historical Jesus" and meets the hermeneutical challenges to a historical and theological assessment of the Jesus tradition. It provides a fresh perspective both on the impact made by Jesus and on the traditions about Jesus as oral tradition, hence the title "Jesus Remembered." And it offers a fresh analysis of the details of that tradition, emphasizing its characteristic (rather than dissimilar) features. Noteworthy too are Dunn's treatments of the source question (particularly Q and the noncanonical Gospels) and of Jesus the Jew in his Galilean context
Baptism in the Holy Spirit; a re-examination of the New Testament teaching on the gift of the Spirit in relation to pentecostalism today by James D. G Dunn( Book )

36 editions published between 1970 and 2010 in English and German and held by 921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Acts of the Apostles by James D. G Dunn( )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Authored by one of the world's leading New Testament scholars, this commentary on the Acts of the Apostles was originally published in 1996. James Dunn first takes the reader through questions of authorship, audience, date, purpose, and literary structure. He then considers the kind of history writing that we find in the narrative of Acts, delineates the book's theological teaching, and offers bibliographic comments on sources and selected studies, including work published between 1996 and 2016. This commentary as a whole provides the information and perspective necessary for reading to best effect what Dunn believes is the most exciting book in the New Testament

Annotation
The Cambridge companion to St. Paul by James D. G Dunn( Book )

26 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and Polish and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The apostle Paul has been justifiably described as the first and greatest Christian theologian. His letters were among the earliest documents to be included in the New Testament and, as such, they influenced Christian thinking from its very beginning. This Companion provides an important assessment of the apostle as well as a new appreciation of his continuing contemporary significance. With eighteen chapters written by a team of well-known international Pauline specialists, the collection will have wide appeal and be an invaluable point of departure for subsequent studies

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The partings of the ways : between Christianity and Judaism and their significance for the character of Christianity by James D. G Dunn( Book )

Beginning from Jerusalem by James D. G Dunn( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second volume of this trilogy, Beginning from Jerusalem covers the early formation of the Christian faith from 30-70 C.E. After outlining the quest for the historical church (parallel to the quest for the historical Jesus) and reviewing the sources, Dunn follows the course of the movement stemming from Jesus "beginning from Jerusalem." Dunn opens this book with a close analysis of what can be said of the earliest Jerusalem community, the Hellenists, the mission of Peter, and the emergence of Paul. In the second part, Dunn focuses solely on Paul--the chronology of his life and mission, his understanding of his call as apostle, and the character of the churches which he founded. The third part traces the final days and literary legacies of the three principal figures of first generation Christianity: Paul, Peter, and James, brother of Jesus. Each section includes detailed interaction with the most important of the vast wealth of secondary literature on these matters. --From publisher's description
Jews and Christians : the parting of the ways, A.D. 70 to 135 : the second Durham-Tübingen Research Symposium on Earliest Christianity and Judaism (Durham, September 1989) by Durham-Tübingen Research Symposium on Earliest Christianity and Judaism( Book )

28 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains papers from the second Durham-Tubingen Research Symposium on Earliest Christianity and Judaism that help clarify the extent to which we can speak of the parting of the ways between Christianity and Judaism. Twelve internationally respected scholars carefully analyze the chief Jewish and Christian documents and traditions from the period A.D. 70-135, drawing out what they say about the mutual relations between early Christianity and Judaism and the light they shed on the diverging trajectories of these two major religious traditions."--Jacket
The theology of Paul's letter to the Galatians by James D. G Dunn( Book )

23 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in English and Japanese and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent research into the character of Judaism in the first century has given scholars a new perspective on Paul. Nowhere is this new perspective more important than in the case of Paul's letter to the Galatians, a letter that shaped the character of the Christian religion in its early years and that remains a foundation document of Christianity. This study, the first to benefit from the new perspective on Paul, explains more clearly than ever the issues that confronted Paul and the powerful theological arguments he brought to bear in response
Jesus, Paul, and the law : studies in Mark and Galatians by James D. G Dunn( Book )

17 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing upon ten years of research experience, the master scholar James D.G. Dunn presents a book on a major issue in the study of Christian origins: what were the attitudes toward Jewish law within earliest Christianity? This volume not only gathers the author's significant contributions to date but also includes new material. Divided into nine parts, it is set in the wider context of a living dialogue and debate. The introduction maps out Dunn's extensive work in Pauline and Markan studies. The final chapter, "The Theology of Galatians," serves as a summary of Dunn's current position on Paul and the law and brings the volume to a convincing conclusion -- PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION
The Epistles to the Colossians and to Philemon : a commentary on the Greek text by James D. G Dunn( Book )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul's Epistle to the Colossians merits detailed study for at least two reasons. First, it provides an unexpectedly interesting window into the character of Christianity in Asia Minor in the second half of the first century. With the information it gives about the religious tensions within which emergent Christianity was caught up, not least those between Christianity and diaspora Judaism, we begin to gain more insight into the influences and factors that shaped the transition from apostolic to subapostolic Christianity in the region. Second, Colossians represents a crucial stage in the development of Pauline theology itself. Whether it was written at the end of Paul's life or soon after his death, it indicates how Pauline theology retained its own vital character and did not die with Paul. In this volume in the celebrated New International Greek Testament Commentary, James D.G. Dunn, author of numerous well-received works on the historical origin and theological interpretation of the New Testament, provides detailed expositions of the text of Paul's letters to the Colossians and to Philemon. Dunn examines each of these letters within the context of the Jewish and Hellenistic cultures in the first century, and discusses the place of Colossians and Philemon in the relationship between the Pauline mission and the early churches that received these letters. Particular stress is also placed on the role of faith in Jesus Christ within and over against Judaism and on the counsel of these two important letters with regard to the shaping of human relationships in the community of faith
Paul and the Mosaic law by Durham - Tübingen Research Symposium on Earliest Christianity and Judaism( Book )

19 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and German and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new perspective on Paul by James D. G Dunn( Book )

29 editions published between 1983 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays highlights a dimension of Paul's theology of justification that has been neglected -- that his teaching emerged as an integral part of his understanding of his commission to preach the gospel to non-Jews and that his dismissal of justification "by works of the law" was directed not so much against Jewish legalism but rather against his fellow Jews' assumption that the law remained a dividing wall separating Christian Jews from Christian Gentiles. James Dunn seeks to carry forward the debate on Jewish soteriology, on the relation of justification by faith to judgment "according to works," on Christian fulfillment of the law, and on the crucial role of Christ, his death and resurrection. Full of detail and intriguing thought, Dunn's collection will enlighten any scholar of the New Testament
