The Case for the Deity of Christ
What Christians have affirmed for nearly two millennia--that Jesus is God--is frequently and openly called into question today. It's natural that those who reject the Bible also reject its exalted view of Christ. But surprisingly, many who embrace the authority of Scripture are quick to argue that Jesus' deity is found nowhere in its pages.
Putting Jesus in His Place demonstrates that the New Testament--from beginning to end--clearly reveals Jesus' divine identity. What's more, it shows that belief in Jesus as God was the conviction of his original Jewish followers, rooted in Old Testament theology and in what Jesus himself said and did.
In a manner that is both academically sound and spiritually engaging, the authors make a case for the deity of Christ that is easy to follow and hard to forget.
