Overview

This text answers the skepticism about the need for a historical understanding of Jesus and shows how this can affect Christian discipleship today. It explores Jesus’ preaching, his Messiahship and death, and his self-understanding in relation to God. The book goes on to ask: What does this imply? What should this mean for us? What, in fact, is the mission of the church grounded in this Jesus and this resurrection, to our postmodern world?
