Nothing is more important than what a person believes about Jesus Christ. To understand Christ correctly is to understand the very heart of God, Scripture, and the gospel. To get to the core of this belief, this latest volume in the Foundations of Evangelical Theology series lays out a systematic summary of Christology from philosophical, biblical, and historical perspectives—concluding that Jesus Christ is God the Son incarnate, both fully divine and fully human. Readers will learn to better know, love, trust, and obey Christ—unashamed to proclaim him as the only Lord and Savior.

Top Highlights

“‘Nobody can call himself a Christian who does not worship Jesus. To worship him, if he is not God, is idolatry; to withhold worship from him, if he is, is apostasy.’” (Page 195)

“First, the Son became a man to fulfill God’s original intention for humanity (see Heb. 2:5–9)” (Page 219)

“That conclusion, and the thesis of this entire volume, is that Jesus Christ is God the Son incarnate, one person subsisting in and acting through a fully divine nature and a fully human nature according to the attributes of each.” (Page 29)

“The outer life of Jesus demonstrates that he had a body and grew and developed like all other human beings.” (Page 211)

“Second, the Son became a man to bring many sons to glory (see Heb. 2:10–13)” (Page 220)

Exploring our Lord’s person and work from a variety of angles, Wellum engages a wide range of issues and conversation partners. Consolidating the gains of evangelical Christological reflection, this volume makes gains of its own, particularly by wrestling clearly and carefully with contemporary trends in biblical studies as well as philosophical, systematic, and historical theology.
