The Son of God : the origin of Christology and the history of Jewish-Hellenistic religion by Martin Hengel( Book )

58 editions published between 1975 and 2007 in 8 languages and held by 1,264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It might well be claimed that there was more development in christology during the period from the crucifixion of Jesus to the writing of St Paul's letter to the Philippians than in the following seven centuries of the development of patristic dogma. This survey traces what happened, in connection with the title 'Son of God'. With his encyclopaedic knowledge of the period, Professor Hengel examines the concept of Son of God in the milieu of the-New Testament, in Judaism and the Hellenistic world and their antecedents and then shows how it began to be used in earliest Christianity, in so doing shedding a new light on many classic problems of New Testament interpretation. Martin Hengel was Professor of New Testament and Early Judaism in the University of Tubingen." -- Publisher's description

Crucifixion in the ancient world and the folly of the message of the Cross by Martin Hengel( Book )

36 editions published between 1977 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a comprehensive and detailed survey on its remarkably widespread employment in the Roman empire, Dr. Hengel examines the way in which ""the most vile death of the cross"" was regarded in the Greek-speaking world and particularly in Roman-occupied Palestine. His conclusions bring out more starkly than ever the offensiveness of the Christian message: Jesus not only died an unspeakably cruel death, he underwent the most contemptible abasement that could be imagined. So repugnant was the gruesome reality, that a natural tendency prevails to blunt, remove, or deomesticate its scandalous impact

Paul between Damascus and Antioch : the unknown years by Martin Hengel( Book )

25 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and German and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important new book covers the time between Paul's conversion in Damascus and his arrival in Antioch, set against a detailed background of the early Christian world, the church in Damascus to which Paul was introduced on his conversion, the methods of the first Christian mission, the situation in Arabia during Paul's first mission, the mission territory in Tarsus and Cilicia to which he then moved, and the nature of the church in Antioch. Martin Hengel once more challenges the overly skeptical assessments of the New Testament record and provides powerful support for his position on Paul."--Jacket

The four Gospels and the one Gospel of Jesus Christ : an investigation of the collection and origin of the Canonical Gospels by Martin Hengel( Book )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Professor Hengel examines the external historical evidence for the creation of the Gospels by those documenting the early church, like Papias and Irenaeus. He also analyzes the origin of the uniform title "Gospel according to" and the process of dissemination of the gospel." "He concludes that the gospel is both narrative and proclamation, and that, in spite of the different forms in which it has come down to us, this very multiplicity is a source of strength for the church."--Jacket
