  Jesus and the God of Israel book. Read 22 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. This book is a greatly revised and expanded edition of /5. That hope for a new Israel—a true Israel that would embody all that God called Israel to be—persisted across the centuries into the New Testament era. This hope was finally fulfilled in the incarnation of God’s true Son by nature, Jesus Christ. Matthew tells us that Jesus fulfills Hosea 11 (Matt. –15). Jesus And The God Of Israel "God Crucified" and Other Essays on the New Testament's Christology of Divine Identity The basic thesis of this important book on New Testament Christology, sketched in the first essay 'God Crucified, is that the worship of Jesus as God was seen by the early Christians as compatible with their Jewish monotheism. Throughout the New Testament, the Lord gloriously unfolds how the promised Messiah fulfilled the prophecies, promises, and plan of our triune God. Matthew’s gospel reveals how Jesus is the true and greater Israel of God (Matt. –15; ; see Hos. ) who accomplished what Israel failed to.

  Jesus, a literal descendant of Abraham, himself a Jew, is the Israel who is the object of God’s love. He is chosen by God and responds in perfect obedience, fulfilling the law and the prophets (Matthew ) and all righteousness ().Author: Keith Mathison.   Physicist Brandenburg gives us an explanation of the Cosmic Jesus and the metaphysics of the Bible and what it says about the cosmos. Brandenburg reveals: the relationship between GEM theory (Gravity-Electricity-Magnetism) and Gematria; the importance of Israel being on the Silk Road; the Aquarian Nazareth; The Genesis Catastrophe; The Revelation; introduced the idea of a One God of Reviews: 8.   N.T. Wright's Jesus and the Victory of God put forth a fascinating and complex picture of Jesus of Nazareth as a rabbi in the Jewish prophetic tradition, who saw himself as living at a crucial moment in the story of God's people Israel. Although "Victory" is only the second in a projected six-volume series, its bold claims and sheer ambition Reviews: 8.   The basic thesis of this book, outlined in the first chapter, is that the worship of Jesus as God was seen by the early Christians as compatible with their Jewish monotheism. Jesus was thought to participate in the divine identity of the one God of Israel. The following chapters provide more detailed support for, and an expansion of, this basic thesis.

  Jesus is the true Israel, and the church becomes the Israel of God as it unites to True Israel. The same is true for ethnic Israel, whom God has not abandoned. But their only hope is to be united with Jesus, the ultimate suffering servant. This book is a greatly revised and expanded edition of Richard Bauckham's acclaimed God Crucified: Monotheism and Christology in the New Testament (), 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. Jesus of Nazareth (/ ˈ dʒ iː z ə s /; 7–2 BC/BCE to 30–36 AD/CE), commonly referred to as Jesus Christ or simply as Jesus or Christ, is the central figure of Christianity. Most Christian denominations venerate him as God the Son incarnated and believe that he rose from the dead after being crucified. As the faithful Israelite Jesus is the true Israel because He is the true Son of God (Matt. –14). By faith in Jesus, the true Israelite, all people can be reckoned as true Israelites. All who are united by faith alone to Jesus the Christ are the true Israel of God (Gal. ).
