This is a book about Jesus of Nazareth. It is not a book about "story," nor about "narrative theology." Hans Frei was not a theologian of story or of narrative in any general way, and this book is neither about the narrative quality of our existence and the gospel's relation to that quality, nor about the narrative shape of the Scriptures as a whole and the call on us to place ourselves within that narrative.Rather, this is a book about the way in which Jesus of Nazareth's identity is rendered by the Gospels--largely the Synoptic Gospels, particularly the Gospel of Luke, and especially in the passion and resurrection sequences--by means of a certain kind of narrative.--from the Foreword by Mike Higton

In view of the proliferation of conflicting images of Jesus in the church, in the academy, and in popular culture, it is no wonder that his identity sometimes appears more elusive than ever.Seeking the Identity of Jesus brings together an interdisciplinary group of leading scholars -- from the fields of biblical studies, theology, and church history -- to focus on the complex problems surrounding the quest for the historical Jesus. Their perspectives are richly informed by Scripture, testimony from the church's past, and experience of the risen Jesus in the present. Contributors: Dale C. Allison Jr. Gary A.

The belief that Mary's husband, Joseph was not Jesus' biological father, is common to allwho know His story well, especially to those who believe in Him. However, there issomething else that must be considered; it is this: Mary herself was not Jesus'biological mother; He possessed neither her genes nor her blood.This important fact, though fundamental to Jesus' identity, has long been neglected -relegated to some dark corner, away from the Christian message. This book, The Identityof Jesus, brings it into light, and deals with related issues including seed of the woman, seed of David, the deity of Jesus and the meaning of the term, "the God man."In a non-traditional, yet biblical way The Identity of Jesus answers the difficult questions.It promises closure to some major controversial issues, one of which being, the true placeof the Blessed Virgin Mary as the mother of Jesus. This has the potential to cause bothCatholics and Protestants to come to a common conclusion.Everyone can profit from The Identity of Jesus. It brings the believer into a greaterconsciousness of the reality of who Jesus is, and increases the awareness of the value ofthe sacrifice that was made for salvation. The information obtained within its pages cantransform a life already committed to Christ, into one that exercises greater authority, displays more of God's glory, and overcomes more adversities. For the non-believer, TheIdentity of Jesus clarifies the misunderstood, and makes what once seemed unbelievable, believable.

Even our pasts can keep us imprisoned from seeing ourselves through Gods eyes and cause us to wrongly determine our worth. In this study, we will go to our unchangeable Creator God and grasp His view of us and His purpose for our lives, while releasing wrong mindsets that have kept us from moving forward. Will you accept Jesus invitation through this study to draw near to Him and find your eternal, unshakeable worth and identity in Him?

THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST: WHO IS JESUS CHRIST IDENTITY, MANDATE, AND MISSION When we talk about Jesus, we are always unanimous in answering that Jesus Christ is the Savior, is the son of God or God with us. A habit inherited from the Christian culture of repeating concepts that are transmitted to us about Jesus. Generally, the definition of Jesus Christ is made in a laconic and habitual way of seeing this character that runs through our history. This entity has settled in our history, and that his image does not wear out over time. That is, it doesn't lose value. He marks our culture, and time is tributary to his coming into the world; a fundamental milestone for humanity: before Christ "B.C." and after Christ "A.D.." His influence on humanity is incontestable, and historians and archeologists remain attesting to his passage on earth. The historical Jesus really and truly existed in physical form, that is, humanly walked the earth of Israel. Moreover, this historical Jesus is divine, for he existed long before his incarnation and his manifestation on earth. He is more than a human being, He is God, and He lives to this day. In this beautiful and revealing work, the man of God, Apostle Onorio Cutane, brings us profound and necessary revelations for the foundation of our faith, strengthening our communion with God, and full knowledge of the identity, mission, and mandate of Jesus Christ. This work is an epiphany that will help you grow spiritually and dispel your doubts about the identity of Jesus Christ. It presents Jesus on three levels of revelation to humanity: pre-incarnation, incarnation, and post-resurrection.
