The Humility and Glory of the Lamb

  • By Jeffrey R. Dickson
$30.29
($42.00)
Although the Apostle John endorses ""Lamb"" twenty-nine times in his Apocalypse and employs a term that is used only one other time in the New Testament to this end, this unique title and its sophisticated christological implications has only received cursory attention both historically and more recently. Even then, incomplete/monochromatic interpretations of the unique verbiage John employs to describe Christ are reached. After identifying this clearing that exists in the christological forest, this book reaches a robust understanding of Revelation's Lamb by means of a contextual-grammatical-canonical-historical hermeneutic. Ultimately, this monograph concludes that the apostle's use of Lamb throughout his Apocalypse promotes a multifaceted christological presentation of John's protagonist that is dependent on the paradoxical theme of glory in humility--a theme that is introduced when the Lamb first emerges in Revelation 5 and is then reiterated every time the title is used thereafter. In so doing, this work offers students and scholars alike a better understanding of who is coming in the end and what this means for the church at present. ""Jeffrey Dickson has written a splendid book that expertly employs a contextual-grammatical-canonical-historical approach to shed new light on the usage and meaning of 'lamb' as a title for Christ in Revelation, with significant christological implications. Dickson's work is scholarly, careful, nuanced, clear, insightful, and makes a unique contribution in expositing a robust and fresh understanding of the humble and glorious leonine Lamb of Revelation."" --John C. Peckham, Andrews University ""Jeffrey Dickson's study of Lamb Christology in the Book of Revelation breaks new ground in this profound and insightful study. He uniquely combines biblical and theological perspectives to study the most dominant symbol in the Apocalypse. Don't miss it "" --Ed Hindson, Rawlings School of Divinity, Liberty University Jeffrey R. Dickson is an Adjunct Professor of Theology and Bible at Liberty University Rawlings School of Divinity. He is the author of SureFire Preaching (2014).
