This book summarizes Skarsuane's research on the Jews' concepts of the Messiah and whether Jesus met these expectations and whether the idea of Jesus as God incarnate emerged from the Greek setting.
This study of the doctrine of incarnation demonstrates its uniqueness to the Christian faith, unrelated to Greek mythology. It discusses biblical and post-biblical writings that identify Jesus as the Messiah. This is a historical study of how the church developed its confession of Christ incarnate and an examination of the basis on which this confession rests.
