The New Testament Use of Theos in Reference to Jesus
Jesus as God stands as one of the significant exegetical-theological contributions of the century. With linguistic and exegetical skill befitting his ranking as a leading international scholar, Murray J. Harris discusses the New Testament us of the Greek term theos (""God"") as a christological title. ""It is difficult to imagine a more careful, comprehensive, or detailed discussion of this controversial aspect of Christology than Dr. Harris has provided. The issues are largely syntactical, and this is a field in which he has already shown his mastery. With the publication of this book, a neglected topic has at last received the attention it deserves. This is a major work of scholarship from an outstanding able scholar."" - I. Howard Marshall ""I have read Jesus as God with very great admiration. The author has shown a logical and judicious mind, a most impressive mastery of the biblical language, an exhaustive knowledge of the relevant secondary literature, as well as theological perceptiveness. I regard this as a really important contribution to New Testament scholarship, which no one who is seriously concerned with Christology can afford to ignore."" - C. E. B. Cranfield ""Well researched and highly informed and will be an important reference for New Testament studies on this topic."" - E. Earle Ellis ""Learned, thorough, and provoking. It treats a neglected subject in a largely convincing way. Especially important is the intensive exegesis of the discussed texts."" - Martin F. Hengel ""An exceptionally thorough study. The author has given exhaustive attention to various explanations, however artificial, by which the testimony of these texts of Christ's deity was weakened or even eluded. His bibliography of more than 850 titles bears evidence of the thoroughness of his research."" - Roger Nicole Murray J. Harris is professor emeritus of New Testament Exegesis and Theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois.
