DESCRIPTION
This book is a greatly revised and expanded edition of Richard Bauckham's acclaimed God Crucified: Monotheism and Christology in the New Testament (1999), which helped redirect scholarly discussion of early Christology.


Praise for the previous edition: 

“Bauckham proposes a clearly superior way of reading the evidence about the relationship between the New Testament's claims about Jesus' identity and the identity of God as understood within the context of Second Temple Judaism.”
-- Books & Culture
“Displays the craft of both a careful exegete and a deft theologian as Bauckham explores the riddle of how the radically monotheistic Jews who composed the earliest church could have come to call Jesus ‘Lord.' . . . .Bauckham's Christology of divine identity offers a proper way to understand the New Testament within its Jewish monotheistic context by including Jesus, cross and all, within the unique identity of Israel's God.”
-- Theology Today
REVIEWS
James D. G. Dunn
— University of Durham
"Richard Bauckham's thesis on a 'New Testament Christology of divine identity' is the most exciting and challenging of anything he has so far done, with the potential to resolve old puzzles (though creating some new ones) and to direct Christian understanding of Jesus into new and fruitful paths."

I. Howard Marshall
— University of Aberdeen
"Indispensable for all students of New Testament and early church Christology. . . . Yet another proof of Bauckham's quite extraordinary command of the world of New Testament scholarship and his capacity for fresh, helpful insights."
