Proclamation from prophecy and pattern : Lucan Old Testament Christology by Darrell L Bock( )

23 editions published between 1982 and 1997 in English and held by 1,305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our suggested contributions are the following: (1) The Christological presentation of Luke consciously takes the reader from seeing Jesus as the regal Messiah-Servant to seeing him as Lord of all. (2) The conceptual form of the arguments from Old Testament for Christology are just as possible from Hebrew or Aramaic texts as they are from the LXX. In making this point we distinguished between the textual form of a passage and its conceptual form. (3) Luke's Old Testament Christology involves a hermeneutical method grounded in the history and culture of his time. It is best described as "proclamation from prophecy and pattern," rather than "proof from prophecy" (Schubert) or through a denial of any presence of a promise-fulfillment motif altogether (Rese). The Old Testament text and Jesus event are in active interaction with one another. Luke's method may well reflect the influence of Jesus himself. (4) We have challenged the fundamental study in this area by M. Rese. (5) We have suggested that Luke's Old Testament Christological portrayal of Jesus was designed to calm any doubts that may have existed within the church about Jesus' position within the plan of God or his offering of God's salvation to all men, especially in the direct offer of salvation to the Gentiles. Jesus is Lord of all, therefore the message can go to all men directly. This point is established by Acts 10. It is for this reason that Old Testament Christology stops in Acts 13 and the focus shifts to the presentation of Gentile mission by the church, especially through Paul

The missing Gospels : unearthing the truth behind alternative Christianities by Darrell L Bock( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and German and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is Jesus who you think he is? Perhaps you've heard the recent buzz about "alternative Christianities" and "new gospels." Speculations have shown up in magazines, documentaries, popular fiction, and even on the big screen. Much of the controversy stems from a library of ancient texts found at Nag Hammadi, Egypt. The Missing Gospels explores these archaeological finds and addresses a "new school" of thought that believes they should radically alter traditional views of Jesus and early Christianity. Darrell L. Bock takes you on a tour of the new claims as well as the controversial writings, examining their origins and comparing them with traditional sources. The Missing Gospels will help you understand the messages of all of these writings so you can form your own opinion. - Publisher

Key events in the life of the historical Jesus : a collaborative exploration of context and coherence by Fedor von Bock( Book )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and German and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using a carefully defined approach to historical Jesus studies and historical method, this collection of essays examines twelve key events in the life of Jesus that were part of a decade-long collaborative research project. Each essay examines the case for the event's authenticity and then explores the social and cultural background to the event to provide an understanding of the event's historical significance. The first six events are related to the public ministry context of Jesus, mostly associated with his Galilean ministry, while latter six events involve his final days in Jerusalem. The final essay closes with suggestions about how these events cohere and what they can tell us about what Jesus did

Three views on the millennium and beyond by Craig A Blaising( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are these the last days? Could Jesus return at any time to establish his thousand-year reign on earth? What is the nature of Christ's millennial kingdom referred to in the book of Revelation? What must happen before Jesus returns, and what part does the church play? Three predominant views held by evangelicals seek to answer these and related questions: premillennial, postmillennial, and amillennial. This book gives each view a forum for presentation, critique, and defense. Besides each contributor's personal perspective, various interpretations of the different positions are discussed in the essays. Three Views on the Millennium and Beyond lets you compare and contrast three important eschatological viewpoints to gain a better understanding of how Christianity's great hope, the return of Jesus, is understood by the church. - Publisher
Dethroning Jesus : exposing popular culture's quest to unseat the biblical Christ by Darrell L Bock( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Darrell Bock teams with Daniel Wallace to help lay readers separate fact from fiction and help from hype in the recent best-selling Jesus books and television specials. There is a quest going on. It's the quest to reduce Jesus to a mythic legend or to nothing more than a mere man. Scholars such as Elaine Pagels and James Tabor are using such recent discoveries as the Gospel of Judas and the Gospel of Thomas to argue that the Christ of Christianity is a contrived figure and that a different Christ-one human and not divine-is the "true" Christ. In his trademark easy-to-understand style Darrell Bock takes on these attempts to redefine Jesus in a convincing, winsome way that will help readers understand that the orthodox understanding of Christ and his divinity is as trustworthy and sure as it ever was

Mark by Darrell L Bock( Book )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides a comprehensive, accessible introduction to the Gospel of Mark, now widely considered the first recorded treatment of Jesus. Darrell Bock explains how this text, once the least-used gospel, came to be regarded as the starting point for understanding Jesus. Drawing together previous arguments and discussion in a constructive summary, he traces the significance of Mark and addresses key features such as its cultural and historical background, its narrative flow, and the role of Greek in supplying meaning. This commentary highlights the issues Mark's gospel raises and develops Mark's message surrounding Jesus' claims of kingdom authority and salvation, the call to disciples to follow him, and the preparation of those disciples to face suffering in light of their choice. Mark will be a valuable resource for students, teachers, and pastors alike
Dispensationalism, Israel and the church : the search for definition by Craig A Blaising( Book )

4 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between Israel and the church is a crucial reference point in theology, especially in distinguishing between dispensational and nondispensational ways of thinking. The thesis of this book is that Israel and the church are distinct theological institutions that have arisen in the historical progress of divine revelation. But they are also related as successive phases of a redemptive program that is historically progressive and eschatologically converging. The approach to these issues here is neither polemical nor apologetic; rather, it anticipates a convergence among evangelical scholars in the recognition of both continuity and discontinuity in the Israel-church relationship. This book has three purposes: - To offer a contemporary dispensational treatment of that relationship through an exegetical examination of key texts with a focus on theological concerns - To foster genuine dialogue with nondispensational thinkers regarding major biblical themes tied to the plan of God - To identify the changes in dispensational thought that have developed since the publication of Charles Ryrie's book Dispensationalism Today in 1965

Truth in a culture of doubt : engaging skeptical challenges of the Bible by Andreas J Köstenberger( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All too often Christians, and even Christian leaders, do not know how to deal with skeptical challenges to the Bible and the Christian faith. In today's culture of doubt, Bible skeptic Bart Ehrman -- professor at UNC-Chapel Hill and author of four New York Times best sellers -- has found a captive audience. Ehrman's popularity is due in large part to the fact that he is talking about things most people never learned about in church. Responding to the key arguments of secular scholars like Ehrman, Truth in a Culture of Doubt takes readers on a journey to explain topics such as the Bible's origins, the copying of the Bible, alleged contradictions in scripture, and the relationship between God and evil. Written for all serious students of Scripture, this book will enable readers to respond to a wide variety of arguments raised against the reliability of Scripture and the truthfulness of Christianity
