Understanding the defining image of Christian contemporary language.

If God is goodness, why did Jesus have to suffer? The meaning of Jesus’ execution is one of the most divisive issues because of that very question. Of course, it’s important to put his death into context from a number of perspectives, but it is also crucial that we recover the meaning of the cross as a metaphor for discipleship. In the end, Jesus’ death cannot be understood apart from the character of his life. This book will contribute to New Testament studies but will also serve related discussions in theology and Christian formation.

ABOUT THE SERIES:
Reframing New Testament Theology is a series that fulfills the need for brief, substantive, yet highly accessible introductions to central questions and themes raised by study of the New Testament. A significant defining question will serve as the point of departure and will frame the discussion. Students will be drawn into an active, theological engagement with the New Testament and related materials by the subsequent analysis.
