Publisher: Rizzoli International Publications
This illustrated edition of the bold, momentous book written by Pope Benedict XVI is beautifully adorned with reproductions of classic works by a veritable pantheon of classic painters—from Tiepolo to Chagall. Begun before his election to the papacy, the book contains masterfully cogent and accessible essays on the life of Jesus, including his baptism, his temptation in the desert, the Sermon on the Mount, the Lord's Prayer, the disciples, the parables, the principal images of John's Gospel, Peter's confession and Jesus's Transfiguration, and Jesus's two self-descriptions, "Son of Man" and "Son." Pope Benedict XVI responds to the revisionist historical literature that makes Jesus a man of his time and place, and he discusses recent archaeological, historical, anthropological, and sociological research. As sensitive as it is erudite and brilliant, this edition is lavishly illustrated with handsome reproductions of classical depictions of Jesus by a roster of eminent artists, including Caravaggio, Tintoretto, Veronese, Bellini, Kandinsky, Gauguin, Matisse, and many others.
Mark's version of the temptation is left open-ended. There are in this Gospel other
tests to be faced, other deserts to traverse. We have not seen the last of Satan (

Mark’s genius lies, not in telling a story about Jesus, but in creating conditions under which the reader may experience the peculiar quality of God’s good news. The Evangelist hurries one along breathlessly, “immediately,” making sure that the reader lurches with the characters into one pothole after another. “What is this new teaching” that consorts with the flagrantly sinful, turning the pious homicidal, intimates into strangers, and mustard seeds into “the greatest of all ... shrubs”? Jesus’ closest adherents, the Twelve, are among the most muddled. Who can blame them? They ask for an obscure parable’s interpretation and receive an answer even more confounding. They are told to feed thousands with next to nothing. Their boat almost capsizes while their teacher sleeps. As they oar in rough waters, the teacher strides the waves intending to bypass them. Putting the reader in the same boat, Mark structures conversations with Jesus that make little sense, if any. The Twelve are craven, stupid, self-serving, and disobedient: meet the average Christian. Besides, “their hearts were hardened.” Who hardens hearts? God. Should not God’s Messiah lift the burdens of those following him? What kind of Christ heads to a cross, handing his disciples another for themselves. “Do you not yet understand?” from the Introduction

Over the years many books based on the Life of Christ have been published. Of these, some have emphasized the facts of His humanity, others the truth of his Deity. While these volumes, therefore, present the Person of Jesus, this work-by the Prince of Expositors-examines His Life as the accomplishment of a Divine work. With rare insight, accuracy of definition, and countless illuminating strokes, G. Campbell Morgan devotes these thirty-three chapters to the pivotal events in Christ's life. The seven crises are: the Birth, the Baptism, the Temptation, the Transfiguration, the Death, the Resurrection, and the Ascension. Included is a preliminary chapter, "The Call for Christ-Man Fallen," and a concluding chapter, "The Answer for Christ-Man Redeemed." Four indexes complete the volume.
This book argues, on the contrary, that the narrative material in the double tradition existed from the very beginning within a coherent Jesus narrative that ran from his baptism to his passion.

Lange Zeit ist die Forschung zu den Evangelien davon ausgegangen, daß das sog. Q-Material im Matthäus- und Lukasevangelium eine Quelle oder eine Tradition darstellt, die fast ausschließlich an den Logien Jesu von Nazareth interessiert war, kaum dagegen an Erzählungen über ihn. Die vorliegende Studie zeigt demgegenüber, daß das Erzählgut in Q von Anfang an existierte, und zwar innerhalb einer Jesus-Erzählung, die von seiner Taufe bis zur Passion reichte. Dieser Erzählrahmen gleicht demjenigen von Markus, ist aber älter. Matthäus und Lukas haben das Q-Material keineswegs in den Erzählrahmen von Markus eingefügt. Die bisherigen differenzierten Forschungspositionen zur Entstehung der Evangelien, zum historischen Jesus und zur Geschichte des frühen Christentums stehen dabei zur Diskussion.

In Christian theology, the teaching that Christ possessed both a human and divine will is central to the doctrine of two natures, but it also represents a logical paradox, raising questions about how a person can be both impeccable and subject to temptation. This volume explores these questions through an analytic theology approach, bringing together 15 original articles that explore the implications of a strong libertarian concept of free will for Christology. With perspectives from systematic theologians, philosophers, and biblical scholars, several chapters also offer a comparative theology approach, examining the concept of impeccability in the Muslim tradition. Therefore, this volume will be of interest to scholars and graduate students working in analytic theology, biblical scholarship, systematic theology, and Christian-Islamic dialogue.

This conduding chapter makes the truths of the book very clear as to their life-application for any and all of Jesus' followers.
Author: Gerald F. Hawthorne
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
We cannot escape the truth, writes Gerald Hawthorne, that Jesus was completely "one of us." Yet Jesus taught with amazing authority, spoke God's word with extraordinary power, healed people who were sick, raised people who were dead, opened the eyes of the blind and did other miraculous things seemingly beyond the ability of humans."How?" Hawthorne asks."Was it by means of his divine nature that he did all this, for certainly he was fully God as well as fully human?" "No," is his resounding answer. Through a careful study of the New Testament, Dr. Hawthorne argues that Jesus did not act from the prerogatives of one who shared the nature of God. Rather, he did what he did through the Holy Spirit, upon whom he depended for power and authority. Essential to this view is the affirmation that Jesus was indeed fully human. In the pages of The Presence and the Power, the author shows the role of the Spirit in Jesus' conception and birth, in his boyhood and youth, in his baptism and temptation and ministry, and in his death and resurrection. Hawthorne brings his discussion to a dimax by setting forth his own understanding of the mystery of the interworking of the human and divine in Jesus. This all serves to usher the reader into the final chapter, role of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer. This conduding chapter makes the truths of the book very clear as to their life-application for any and all of Jesus' followers.
